Unplanned pregnancy

The word "CHOICE" written in rusty metal letterpress type on an old aged leather background.
Pregnancy can come as a surprise. It’s easy to forget about the condom in the heat of the moment. Even if you use contraception perfectly, sometimes it just doesn’t work. Either way, if you unintentionally get pregnant, you do need to decide what to do.

There are three options: you may keep the baby, you deliver the baby and give it up for adoption or to a family member, or you may the pregnancy terminated (an abortion).

Whatever you decide, you need to think carefully about the next steps. Talk to someone you trust. Someone who can give you advice and support, preferably an adult – your mother, an aunt, a friend, your partner or your doctor. Someone who won’t judge you for the choices you ultimately make. In the end, you’re the one who has to make the decision.
