After receiving a positive at-home pregnancy test, it’s important to take certain steps to keep a healthy emotional and mental state, as this can be an overwhelming time. If you’re experiencing an unplanned pregnancy, consider the following steps to take immediately following your positive pregnancy test:
Talk to an Objective Third Party
It’s important to have an objective third-party as your listening ear. Our friendly medical professionals would love to talk to you, hear your story, and answer any questions you have. We will not sway you in any way. We simply want to help you during this time!
Take a Deep Breath
If you’re experiencing an unplanned pregnancy, it may feel like your world is crashing down around you. You likely have a thousand questions and you’re unsure what to do. Take a deep breath and try to relax. If you’d like, you can take a free pregnancy test at our clinic to confirm or deny your at-home pregnancy test results.
Research Your Options
The truth is – you have time! That means you don’t need to make a rush decision about this unplanned pregnancy. Research your options and know what each option entails: abortion, adoption, and parenting. After doing your research, we can answer any further questions you may have.
Whether you seek support from Women’s Clinic of Atlanta and/or a friend who has experienced an unplanned pregnancy as well, having support during this time is crucial. You are not alone on this journey, and we would be honored to help you through this time.
If you are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy, we can be your sounding board and guide you toward the decision that best fits your situation. Simply call or text us at 678-764-0857 to schedule an appointment.
