pregnant, but I don't want to be

Okay, so here's the deal. I'm pregnant, but I don't want to be. I really need help finding a way to get rid of it. I don't need people who are going to tell me I'm stupid or try to change my mind. I'm 18 years old and I was raped by this guy a couple houses down. I feel so dirty and nasty and I just want to crawl in a hole and die. I have not been with anyone because I'm single which makes me hare the situation even more. I love kids but there is no way I could take care of this baby knowing how it got there and who put it there. I just can't go through with this. I live in a place where abortion is illegal and I don't have the money to go somewhere else and do it. I'm only 3 weeks please someone help!!!!

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

Medical termination of pregnancy(MTP) by pills(methotrexate,mesoprostol and mifiprestone) is effective only if pregnancy is less than seven weeks. Anytime past seven weeks requires surgical abortion.

Consult a gynecologist to decide the best option available for you.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
