Unplanned Pregnancy

Unplanned Pregnancy

Unplanned Pregnancy is always a possibility.

  • There is always a possibility for unplanned pregnancies. Birth control can fail and certain things can impact the effectiveness of your birth control methods. So long as you are sexually active, pregnancy can happen, but you don’t have to go through it alone.

Things to Know:

  • 1 in 5 pregnancies end naturally.
    • So, you took a test at home, and it says you are pregnant. Your next step would be to seek medical assistance to confirm your pregnancy and the vitality of your pregnancy. HGC levels may remain high in your body after a miscarriage, meaning for that period of time you may test positive, but your pregnancy might not be viable. Before making any tough decisions, stop in to get the facts on your current situation.
  • It’s YOUR Choice.
    • By law and regardless of age or marital status, YOU and YOU ALONE are the only one who can make any decision about your pregnancy. While this seems like a huge responsibility, you don’t have to go at it alone. We can provide you with the resources and support you need to come to a decision that best fits your unique needs. No one can force you into any decision. This is your decision to make, and you’re not the first person to make it. You are not alone.
  • Understand Your Options
    • Don’t leave any questions unanswered or any stones unturned. Get all the necessary medical testing necessary to confirm your pregnancy. From there, understand your rights and responsibilities with abortion, adoption and parenting in order to make an informed and rational decision.
  • You are not alone.
