This article is for teen girls who think they may be pregnant and are panicking. The best thing to do when you suspect pregnancy is to take a test as soon as possible – but before doing so, it’s important to remain calm. If the pregnancy test comes back positive, there are many ways that you can do handle the situation. There are many options available such as abortion, adoption and even becoming a teenage parent. This article will discuss some of those options in detail and help you choose what is right for your situation!
You can make a pregnancy test appointment by calling your local Planned Parenthood, or making an online appointment to be seen as soon possible depending on how far along you are in the process of pregnancy. If the results of the pregnancy test return a positive result, then some serious decisions need to be made.
Abortion may seem like the best and easiest option at first, but it is important to do your research and not rush into this decision. It is a medical procedure that will change the rest of your life, so make sure you are making an informed choice! If abortion does not seem like the best option for you, there are many other options available such as adoption or becoming a teenage parent.
Abortion is a big decision and there are many reasons why a teen might choose to have one. It is important to understand the risks and benefits of abortion before making this decision for yourself, otherwise you may regret it later on in life if your circumstances change.
Abortion carries both physical and mental implications
Abortion can be traumatic. Most people report feeling relief after an abortion, but it is natural to feel some negative emotions as well. It is important for the teen having this procedure to have a support system and someone they can talk with about how they are feeling afterwards. It is not uncommon for girls to feel guilt of even depressed after an abortion.
Teen pregnancy can also lead to other problems, such as school dropout rates and more likely unemployment in the future. Abortion is a safe procedure for those who are under 18 years old so long as they meet certain requirements set by law. It may be possible to get this procedure done on private health insurance depending on where you live and your state’s laws about abortions.
If adoption seems like the best option, find out what types of adoptions (private vs public) are available where you live and make sure that every step has been carefully considered – do not rush into any decisions as they can be incredibly difficult to undo when pregnancy hormones subside. There are also legal consequences surrounding giving up a child for adoption that have to be considered.
Adoption has multiple benefits for both the mother and child. It is an option that should not be ruled out without careful consideration, as it can have a positive impact on both parties involved. Adoption also benefits the new parents who are adopting the child. The joy of making another couple happy and giving an opportunity to a child that would not otherwise have one is immeasurable. Many couples who cannot naturally conceive are also faced with the decision to adopt. Adoption is a wonderful, life-changing, option for them.
Becoming a teen parent may be scary at first – but in reality, it can actually be really rewarding! You get to raise and watch grow another person who was created by both yourself and someone else. There’s nothing more fulfilling than knowing that everything you do has impacts on their life too. Teenage parenting can be difficult but there are many programs available to provide support.
Teenage motherhood doesn’t mean that college and career goals are out of reach. Many teenage moms complete college and find successful professional careers. With ample government support systems for teenage mothers in place, there’s no limit to what a teen mom can do with their life.
