I’m 16 and pregnant — and alone

I am 16 years old and pregnant.

I’ve kept my boyfriend a secret from my parents — and now the baby’s father isn’t interested. I don’t know what to do or who to turn to. PT

FIONA SAYS: IT’S TIME TO MAKE A|DECISION — TALK TO YOUR GP

Your first decision must be to decide what to do about your pregnancy.

If you want to continue and keep your baby, or have the child adopted, then you need proper pregnancy care.

If you want to terminate your pregnancy, then you need to do so as soon as possible.

Either way, you need to see your doctor or a family planning clinic.

Go to fpa.org.uk and search for ‘unplanned pregnancy’, which will explain more.

You might find your parents more supportive that you think, though, and they will need to know if you decide to have the baby.

Perhaps you could ask another family member to help you to tell them.
