Pregnancy

Facing an unplanned pregnancy

It is common to feel shocked, scared, panicked, confused, embarrassed, isolated or lonely when facing an unplanned pregnancy. Professionals are there to provide information and support on the options available but only the woman herself can make the decision as to whether or not to continue with the pregnancy.

It can be a difficult and complicated decision but help and advice is available. It's important to talk to someone as soon as possible. There is advice available from other young people's services or family planning clinics.

Under 16s

Facing an unplanned pregnancy is difficult at any age but can be even more distressing for a woman who is under 16 and doesn't know where to turn. Youth Advisory Clinics are used to seeing young people under 16 and can provide confidential help and advice.
