What are the options for teenagers who are pregnant?
Teens who become pregnant may be afraid to see a doctor, but it’s extremely important for the safety of the mother and the unborn child. Your doctor should discuss all options with you regarding your pregnancy, including:
• abortion, or ending the pregnancy medically
• adoption, or giving birth and legally permitting someone else to raise your child
• giving birth and raising the child yourself
Ideally, the future father and family members of both mother and father will be involved in making the best decisions. However, this isn’t always possible.
Birth control clinics and public health offices can provide counseling information to help you make the right choices for you and your baby.
