How do I know if I am pregnant?
A urine test performed by medical professionals is the best way to find out. You can also purchase home pregnancy tests at most drugstores. They are simple to use, but they are not accurate unless you very carefully read and follow the instructions in the package. If your test is "positive," you will need a pelvic exam.
You and your partner have three choices if you are pregnant:
- You can choose to have a baby and raise the child.
- You can choose to have a baby and place the baby for adoption.
- You can choose to terminate the pregnancy.
