Pregnancy - What do I do?
If you think you maybe pregnant you need to see a medical professional to find out for sure if you’re pregnant or not and to get advice. It may help to talk things over with your partner, a close friend or a family member.
Alternatively, you may prefer to discuss your feelings and options with a professional counselor. Don’t feel you have to make this important decision on your own. Equally, don’t let others decide for you. See below for contact details of support organisations.
If you discover you’re not pregnant then learn from the fright and promise yourself that you’ll never have unprotected sex again.
I’m pregnant. What are my options?
Talk to someone you trust: maybe a close friend, your boyfriend, parents, a relative, a teacher or school counselor. Hopefully this person will be supportive and help you decide what to do next.
