I think I'm pregnant

Missed your period? Have nausea, swollen breasts or fatigue? These are just some of the symptoms that can lead someone to believe they’re pregnant. 

First things first, if you haven’t already, take a pregnancy test — available at the SHRC, any pharmacy or at a clinic — to confirm. 

There are many options moving forward with your pregnancy. You can carry the pregnancy to term and become a parent, terminate the pregnancy or go through adoption proceedings. Regardless of what you decide is best for you, it’s essential to confirm that you’re pregnant, seek pre-natal care, find resources on how to follow through with your decision and find support afterwards.
