You may feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders and you wonder how you’re going to face an unplanned pregnancy while going to school.
Wherever you are in your journey, know that you are not alone. Our compassionate team at Heartbeats is here to support you along the way. We can help you get connected with the right resources for you to succeed.
Here are some first steps to take if you’re pregnant in high school or college.
Confirm That You’re Pregnant
Medical-Grade Pregnancy Testing
Your first step to pregnancy confirmation is pregnancy testing. Confirm your home pregnancy test results with our medical-grade pregnancy testing to be sure.
There is a chance your home pregnancy test results are inaccurate if you accidentally took it at the wrong time or skipped a step.
Receive An Ultrasound
The second step to pregnancy confirmation is an ultrasound. It’s essential not to skip this step, as it reveals whether you have a viable pregnancy (with a heartbeat), how far along you are, and the location of your pregnancy (if it’s growing within the uterus or not).
If considering abortion, an ultrasound is necessary to determine your options, as it confirms how far along you are. It will also alert you to any pregnancy complications such as miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy— which would require a different medical procedure to be done.
Learn All Your Options
You may be wondering if you can continue a pregnancy while in school. While the decision is ultimately up to you—many women have continued pregnancy while finishing school! It’s not impossible for you.
Be informed about all your options before making your final decision. You owe it to yourself to know the facts. If you have questions or concerns about any of your options, talk to our team to get answers.
