The Facts on Unplanned Pregnancies

Unplanned pregnancies happen for many reasons, from forgetting to use contraception to having a condom fail. Even if you use contraception correctly, there is still a chance that you could get pregnant as there is no form of contraception that works perfectly. The most reliable contraceptives will work more than 99% of the time, but there is still a small chance that you could conceive. While many women decide to continue with their unplanned pregnancies, this isn’t the right choice for everyone. Depending on the emotional, financial and family circumstances, it can be better to end the pregnancy instead. Deciding between these options is a big decision that you will need to discuss with your family doctor or an expert at a private abortion clinic in London.

If you are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy, it is important to remember that you are not alone. Many women have had the same experiences as you and support is available to help you to make the right choices.

  • Approximately half of all pregnancies in the UK were unplanned
  • About one in five pregnancies end in an abortion
  • One in three women will have an abortion at some point in their lives
