I am 19 and i think i am pregnant… idk what to do… should i tell my parents or go to the doctor myself?
First step is to talk to a close friend who will help you through the process. You can take a home pregnancy test from any pharmacy to make sure. If you are pregnant then you can try to go to the doctor yourself but please go to a known and good doctor and follow the instructions. Do not try to take any step yourself because it can be dangerous. If you feel scared and you do not have anyone to talk to then talk to your parents. They may get angry in the short run but you would be glad you took their help
Stay strong beautiful. Take care of your health and body.
Also, thankyou so much Ananya for such an insightful reply with a wonderful step-wise approach. We hope it helps this young girl.
What did you finally do ? I need assistance on this. I can’t face this. I feel like this is breaking me.
to the girl who is asking me, i first took the decision to not go ahead with the pregnancy. it is a choice, i’m sure maybe you’re thinking about why is that even a question for a 19 year old, but it does cross one’s mind. i took anananya’s advice and confided in my 2 best friends first. one of them said to me that she will be with me through it all, the doctor’s appointment s and stuff. You will have to reach out to someone who can hep you with going through this process. don’t feel like you have to face it alone, i think this community is here for you, and I understand in real life you will have to go through everything physically on your own, but we are here to support each other. I wrote this post in the extreme time , where i felt lost and alone and helpless. reading the response helped me get a hold of mysel.

The girl who feels like she’s breaking down, take your time to feel your emotions. Let the fear, grief, confusion come out. After that, don’t let the stress of this overpower you, remember that you are a strong woman and you’ve got this. And you’ve got us. Keep us in the loop, you don’t have to face this alone. Sending you lots of love and the warmest hug, you’re doing great xx
