Oh No! I Got a Positive Pregnancy Test, Now What?

Discovering that you are pregnant can be an incredibly overwhelming and emotional experience, especially if it wasn’t planned or desired. If you find yourself in this situation and are unsure of what to do next, it’s important to remember that you have options and support available to you.


First and foremost, it’s important to take a deep breath and try to remain as calm as possible. It can be easy to spiral into panic and anxiety, but remember that you are not alone and there are people who can help you navigate this challenging situation.


If you have taken a pregnancy test and it has come back positive, the next step is to schedule an appointment with a healthcare provider or Options Women’s Care Center to confirm the pregnancy and discuss your options. This may be a difficult conversation to have, but it is essential in order to receive accurate medical advice and support.


If you have decided that you do not want to continue with the pregnancy, there are several options available to you. It’s important to research different abortion clinics and providers in your area to understand the process and ensure that you receive proper care.


It is also important to verify the viability, placement, and gestational age of the pregnancy before choosing abortion as an option.

  • If the pregnancy is not viable there is no need to pay for an abortion.
  • If the pregnancy is outside of the uterus (ectopic), the abortion will not take care of the pregnancy. An ectopic pregnancy is a medical emergency.
  • The gestational age will help you to determine what abortion procedure is available to you.

Options Women’s Care Center can help you verify viability, placement, and gestational age at no cost.


Another option to consider is adoption. If you are not ready to become a parent but do not want to undergo an abortion, placing the child for adoption can be a loving choice. There are many resources and agencies available to help guide you through the adoption process and find the best possible home for your child. There are different types of adoption available, open or closed.


Regardless of the option you choose, it’s important to surround yourself with supportive and understanding individuals during this time. Lean on friends, family, or the staff at Option’s Women’s Care Center to help you navigate this difficult decision and provide emotional support.


Remember, it’s okay to feel a range of emotions during this time, from sadness and confusion to relief and empowerment. Take the time to process your feelings and make the decision best for you and your situation.


Ultimately, it’s crucial to remember that you have the power to make choices about your future. Be kind to yourself, seek out support, and know that you are not alone. Take the necessary steps to prioritize your physical and emotional well-being during this challenging time.
