When faced with an unplanned pregnancy, you have three pregnancy options to choose from: abortion, adoption, or parenting. You deserve to be informed about all three options. You may be surprised at what each entails and the risks. Ultimately, the decision is yours to make. You are not alone.
Abortion is a serious medical procedure with serious risks to think about. Though it may seem like the easy choice, it comes with possible life-long effects physically and emotionally. There are two main types of abortion: surgical and medication abortion. Both work towards terminating an existing pregnancy through surgery or with two types of drugs.
Potential risks of surgical abortion
The Mayo Clinic shares these potential risks of surgical abortion:
- Heavy bleeding
- Perforation of the uterus
- Damage to the cervix
- Scar tissue on the uterine wall
Potential Risks of Medication Abortion
The Mayo Clinic shares these potential risks of medication abortion:
- Incomplete abortion, which may need to be followed by surgical abortion
- An ongoing unwanted pregnancy if the procedure doesn’t work
- Digestive system discomfort
- Heavy and prolonged bleeding
You may not feel ready to raise a child – and that’s ok. You will always be a mother, no matter what. Adoption is an opportunity to give your child a great future. It’s challenging but full of rewards and love. Choose from either an open, closed, or semi-open adoption plan. Here are more details about the process.
Are you considering parenting? You may have lots of questions about parenting. Many women have challenges no matter how old they are, their financial status, or background. You may be asking yourself…
- Do I have the support I need from my family or partner?
- Should I continue school or further my career goals while parenting?
- What if I don’t have insurance or medical care?
