You need a pregnancy test. A free test at First Place OPTIONS can provide you with an accurate result- now! Our tests can detect pregnancy 10-14 days after conception and are 99% accurate. When you come in for your test, you will also meet a decision aid counsellor who is trained and experienced in options support.
Please note that the counsellors at First Place OPTIONS are not medical professionals and will recommend that you confirm the results given at First Place OPTIONS with a medical professional. Your counsellor can also give you the time you need to discuss your individual situation and explore all your options.
Talk to someone you trust. Although you may feel alone and helpless in your pregnancy, there is support. At First Place OPTIONS the counsellors care and are trained to help. They can help you explore all the options available to you and prepare you to discuss your pregnancy with your parents.
You may end up being happy with the support your parents and friends will give you. They may express anger or disappointment at first, but give them a chance to support you.
