At least half of all pregnancies are unplanned so it is very common. In one in five pregnancies the person will choose a termination. It can be a difficult choice to make and it can be a very emotional time. Talking to people you trust and making sure you have accurate information and support from a healthcare professional will help. All information and treatment is confidential whatever your age. This means that information cannot be shared with anyone else without your agreement. 


Individuals are now able to self-refer to terminate a pregnancy.
