Pregnancy

 

It is very important for a young woman to have someone to trust and offer support when she is facing the possibility of being pregnant. This may be a parent, a counselor, an adult friend or a peer. If a young woman thinks that she is pregnant, it is important to have a pregnancy test in a medical setting. The young woman may need to speak with someone who can support her to receive the medical attention she needs.
