You’re faced with so many questions when dealing with an unexpected pregnancy. The most significant decision you have to make is what you will do. 

If you’re not ready to parent, there are two options available to you: abortion and adoption.

Considering Abortion

Abortion uses drugs, surgical instruments, or a combination of both to end a pregnancy. It is a serious medical procedure that comes with risks involved. 

In a medical abortion, these include:

  • Incomplete abortion
  • An ongoing pregnancy if the procedure doesn’t work
  • Heavy and prolonged bleeding
  • Digestive system discomfort
  • Infection
  • Fever

In a surgical abortion, there are further risks:

  • Uterine perforation (a small tear in your uterus), which may happen if the tip of the instrument passes through your uterine wall
  • Uterine infection
  • Uterine bleeding

These are just some of the possible risks involved when undergoing an abortion. That’s why it’s crucial to confirm key pregnancy details before seeking out one. An ultrasound is the best way to protect your health and will reveal these details.

Considering Adoption

Adoption requires that you carry your pregnancy to full term. However, adoption in modern times allows you to have more control than ever over your pregnancy.

You can select the adoptive family and the level of contact between you. You can choose open, semi-open, or closed adoptions, which dictate the communication you have with the adoptive family and the child.  

You will not pay for adoption services when working with a reputable agency. Also, financial and material support may be available to assist you during your pregnancy.

While adoption may not be the quickest option, it can provide you with the rewarding feeling of helping a family in need and knowing your child will be cared for.
