Are you pregnant? If you’re sexually active and think you’ve missed your last period, it’s possible that you are pregnant. Mistakes happen, but you can control how you deal with this situation.

  1. Take a pregnancy test. As the symptoms of pregnancy vary so much from woman to woman, it’s important to be sure that you are pregnant. Options Care Center can help you with this.
  2. Educate yourself. If you’ve never been pregnant before, it’s important to learn from someone you trust about what pregnancy involves, as well as the facts concerning your options: abortion, adoption or parenting. Pregnancy is a high-stakes issue, and you shouldn’t let an embarrassed parent, pushy boyfriend – or your financial situation – put you down or put pressure on you. Learn the facts for yourself, and make a decision for yourself. Options Care Center is a non-profit funded by private individuals and organizations who believe in empowering women. We are run by trained individuals including medical staff. We make no financial gain from your visit or pregnancy decision.
  3. Figure out what you need, and ask for help from people you trust. You have a decision to make, but you shouldn’t be facing this situation alone. Options Care Center can provide you with material assistance, emotional support, and a broad variety of referrals to help you get the help you need – legal, financial, job-related and so on.
