The first moment you see two lines indicating a positive pregnancy test can bring on a flood of emotions and questions, such as: “Why me?”, “How can I or we do this?”, “What am I supposed to do now?” or even, “There’s no way.”
You may feel fear, anxiety, panic or disbelief. Learning of or even suspecting a pregnancy that was not planned can be a major source of mental and emotional upheaval. For many women, facing the reality of an unplanned pregnancy can result in entering crisis mode and feeling immense pressure to make an immediate decision about what to do next.
Abortion may feel like a logical option to consider.
