I’m pregnant and I don’t want to be. Advice?

I just found out - I’m only a few weeks in; a few days into a missed period. It’s entirely my fault for being silly and for being convinced that my partner and I could have unprotected sex a couple of times without consequences. We both realised we were being reckless and went back to contraception, but it was too late I guess. We’re both in our 20s and absolutely do not want and cannot provide for a baby. My mind is made up that I will terminate the pregnancy.

However, I still feel incredibly anxious about these uncharted waters. I haven’t told anybody yet, including my partner. We’re away from each other for Christmas and I don’t know how to approach the topic on the phone without both of us freaking out. I kind of just want to keep my head down until it’s over.

I’m also unsure of the procedure - who do I go to? Do I have to see a GP first, or can I go straight to a clinic and get it over with?

If anyone has any advice for a scared 20-something about who to call and how to talk about this, it’d be much appreciated. flowers

thanks to you.
You don't have to go to a GP (though you could do), you can go direct to BPAS or Marie Stopes. They will help you through the process.
Don't worry it's not horrible and they are very understanding.
Take care - lots of us have been in your shoes.

You can call BPAS and book a consultation, most often the procedure has to be done on a different day but if you are travelling you could arrange to have both on the same day. Depending on how far along you are at your scan, you can opt for a medical or surgical termination. Thinking of you and wishing you all the best thanks
