Here’s an example of why pregnancy is such a finicky condition, even for people who have been through the whole ordeal.
I am 2 weeks late for my period. I’m under a lot of stress, so I didn’t notice it right away (my flow isn’t super regular, but generally will start between the 16th and 20th) until my boyfriend mentioned it was a week late. I have been having cramping, so I thought it was just later than I have been. I used to have super irregular periods.
Anywhoo, earlier this week, to stave off my worries, I decided to take two pregnancy tests. I thought I messed up on the first one, because the dye was runny and weird. The second one was the same way, but I let it sit for a little while (over the recommended 10 minutes) and it was negative.
Well, yesterday I picked up another box, since my period still hasn’t started. I took one at 2 AM (because I really had to pee and I thought it was later in the morning) and it did the runny dye shit again. I waited 2 to 5 minutes, it looked negative, I went back to bed. Then, my boyfriend got up 5 hours later and it looked positive. No hint of the runny dye crap as before. Confused, I took the second test. It did the runny dye thing, again. The pictures above are about 5 to 10 minutes after I peed on the second stick (the lower one where there’s two; it’s by itself in the third one) and it still looks like the pregnancy window has a horizontal line with runny dye.
The other tests are already too old to see if they changed to positive.
This has completely confused me. I’ll probably have to buy one of the more expensive pregnancy tests, because these are generic store brand pee-sticks.
This is pretty unexpected, because I haven’t been having a lot of sex lately and haven’t had sex without condoms or some form of birth control since my abortion last year. Abortion is expensive and emotionally taxing (for me); I was extra careful to make sure it didn’t have to happen again, but it looks like I might be getting another.
Edit: An hour later and the pregnancy test is still being jacked up.
honestly…. you probably shouldn’t have another abortion.
I didn’t ask for opinions. I f I get another abortion, I get another abortion.
You should honestly probably consider your other options.
You should honestly consider the fact that you do not know me.
Adoption, for one.
Nope. Don’t have the finances or emotional ability to be pregnant or give a baby up to adoption. lus, there are enough kids in adoption agencies.
I’m normally extremely open when it comes to people having abortions simply because I know how hard that choice is, but from what I’ve gathered you weren’t paying attention and got careless.
I am 24-years-old. I am a stay-at-home mother to my biolgocial toddler and my boyfriend’s 9 year old. I am depressed and I have social anxiety. I am currently trying to do work as a freelance writer. OH, and I probably won’ have my car for much longer, because my toddler’s bio-daddy is getting out of prison and now wants it back (despite the fact it was payment for taking care of our child without him, since he wasn’t able to pay child support) or wants me to pay for it, which isn’t happening with our bills and rent.
And, FYI, didn’t notice because I was planning my daughter’s 3rd birthday, the first one I had to plan without her grandmother taking the reins. Being socially anxious, this was on my mind. A lot.
I hope your not pregnant because that would be very sad. You don’t need to go around killing under-developed embryos because you made a mistake.
No fetus is worth more than me, my children, our home, my family. Piss off with your guilt trip.
One abortion, fine. Two abortions due to health conditions is even okay. But Two abortions because you are more than likely a reckless fuck is ridiculous. I have no sympathy for people like you.
Boom. There’s the truth. You value a fetus above a sentient person and their family. Good to know.
There is no reason you should be granted another abortion.
Oh, I’m sorry, I wasn’t aware I had to ask you or anyone else what I could do with my body!
They should make you carry out the pregnancy and have to look that baby in the eyes.
Forced pregnancy. Damn. Again, fuck you.
Abortion is not a method of birth control that should be used casually.
Technically, it is a method of birth control, because it prevents birth.
It hurts other people too you know. There is a whole website dedicated to women who have had abortions that need help because they are suffering from PASS.
PASS isn’t recognized by any medical organization. It’s pro-life bullshit. People do regret their abortions and that’s fine. They need support.
There are people who don’t regret their abortions, too.
Then for someone who is on that website [yes me] to get on another social media website and see crap like this only makes it harder. You should stop having sex since you’re obviously careless when it comes to protection and oblivious when it comes to the fact that if you are pregnant that is a LIVING THING you are killing.
Does this mean I’m not allowed to take antibiotics, because it kills bacteria? Or eat meat, because it kills animals?
Fetuses are not sentient. Getting an abortion simply ends their existence. They do not suffer.
I’m pro-choice but you can only go so far with that. After you’ve had the choice once and used it that get out of jail free card is gone. Now you should have to live with the decisions you made when you decided to spread your legs.
Take your abortion stigma and SHOVE IT UP YOUR ASS.
My consent to sex, with my boyfriend who I live with, is not consent to carry any pregnancy. Just because we’re poor doesn’t mean I should be forced to have another baby or be forced into celibacy. Precautions were taken and, even if they weren’t, I still have a right to choices about my own body.
Fuck you and fuck your forced pregnancy ideology. People should not be forced through pregnancy, they should choose it willingly. Since I am not in a position to have another child, guess what would be my choice? HINT: I DID IT LAST YEAR AND I’M NOT ASHAMED.
Sorry you had to deal with this douchecanoe, protego-et-servio.
This person is clearly not pro-choice, pro-choice does not have a but after it. Not to mention anyone playing pro-lifer bingo probably hit black out with this one.
