I always use condoms because of this and the fact that without insurance I can't afford to pay out of pocket for BC. My significant other got me drunk and did not use a condom on purpose to control me.
He says he will leave me if I have an abortion and he has threatened me if I do as well. I am already miserable because of the abuse (emotional and verbal but not yet physical) that I recieve from him. I can't bring another child into this situation and I can't handle it being pregnant either.
