An abortion, sometimes called a termination, is a medical procedure women can have to end a pregnancy.
There are many different reasons someone might have an abortion, and there is no right or wrong answer. Don’t be afraid to talk with a trusted adult if you’re considering your options. This is a big decision, and something you shouldn’t ignore.
If you take the morning after pill within 72 hours after sex (vaginal) you can also reduce the chances of an unwanted pregnancy. Speak to your doctor or your local pharmacy.
