Pregnant, what now?
Pregnancy, what now?
If the pregnancy test is positive, you are most likely pregnant. You and your partner now have a choice, continue the pregnancy, or consider a termination? Both choices have consequences. You’re not alone in this. There are many people who can help you to make that decision.
“I would have liked to finish my degree first, have a well-paid job and my own home.”
Simone, 23 years old
I got pregnant when I was 18 years old. I had to grow up a bit faster. Having an early pregnancy gave me quite some stress. Had to put some educational aspects on hold, the job I was in paid poorly and my social life became non-existent. I also had to move out and live with in-laws. I did not have much of a voice in that household so that made decision making and communication a lot harder. I would have liked to finish my degree first, have a well-job and my own home. So, make sure you are using proper contraceptives if you are not prepared for it.
