Pregnancy

                                             



Pregnancy is a possible outcome of sex, no matter how much protection you provide for your self. If you're pregnant, you have three options to think about — abortion, adoption, and parenting. Reading and learning about each option will help you get the facts and may help you decide what to do.

Planned Pregnancy
If you are planning on having a child at such a young age, I urge you to research on how much this will consume your life. Having a child is a big deal and requires a ton of effort and time even as an adult and to purposely seek out that commitment at such a young age will life changing. Here is the story of two teens who are were pregnant and gave birth during their high school years.

It will be okay. It is going to be a journey but there options and not just abortion. If you do not want to get an abortion there is always adoption there and raising the child with the help of your family. There are many things to consider now that you are at this stage. None of the decisions you make now should be made alone. You should tell your partner as well as your parents. You are not alone. Here are some links to help you out.
