Understand your options

Millions of women face unplanned pregnancies every year.

The facts listed here should help you weigh the benefits and risks of your options. Think about which benefits and risks are most important to you.

If you think you may be pregnant, the first step is to take a pregnancy test.

If you are pregnant, you have three options to think about — abortion, adoption, and parenting.

Absolutely no one should pressure you or trick you into making a decision you are not comfortable with.

Only you can decide what is right for you. But women often find it helpful to talk it through with someone else. Pick someone you think will be supportive. It’s important to remember that you get to decide who is a part of your decision-making process.

You also have the power to change your mind, whatever you decide!
