I am 15 and think I may be pregnant

I am 15 and I think I may be pregnant. I have missed my period by 3 days, it might be nothing but I have most of the symptoms like breast pains. I am really worried because my parents would be shocked, and I have a new boyfriend and I don't think he would really be happy.
What should I do if I am, should I have an abortion or should I keep the little bundle of joy. I would love to me a mum but am I too young.

The first thing you need to do is have a pregnancy test so that you can be sure about what you are facing. If you are pregnant it would be good for you to sit down with someone independent to talk through your options, get all the information, and work out how you feel about each of the options. In the end it has to be your decision and one that you feel is right for you. If you continue with your pregnancy you will need to work out what support you have in place, or you may want to explore an adoption plan. If you decide on abortion you may want to have pre abortion counselling to talk through your options, and get all the information you need.find a centre for pregnancy choices support in your area.
