If you are facing an unplanned pregnancy, you likely feel scared and confused. It can be overwhelming trying to understand what options are available and what choice is best.

Get the Facts You Need
Gathering all the facts you can about your pregnancy is one of the first steps toward taking control of the decisions around your unplanned pregnancy.
Pregnancy Testing and/or Ultrasound
The first fact to gather is whether you’re, in fact, pregnant. Confirming your pregnancy with a medical-quality pregnancy test from a women’s health clinic is important. Many clinics offer these tests free of charge at their offices, ensuring the result is 99.9% accurate.
Once you confirm your pregnancy, a follow-up ultrasound scan is recommended. This scan can provide valuable information about your pregnancy that will determine what options are available to you.
