HELP: “I don’t know who the father of my baby is”

Anonymous from Mabopane writes: 

I’m 23 years old and pregnant.

I’m dating three guys at the

same time. I have been having sex

with all of them and I don’t know

who is the father of my baby. I want

to have an abortion without my

parents’ knowledge. Where can I

go for an abortion? Please help

me out.

Dr Eve answers:

Termination of pregnancy is

legal in South Africa. Think

carefully if this is the route

you want to take. If so, government

clinics offer this service. I want you to

also think about the fact that you had

unprotected sex with three different

men. Please get yourself tested for

HIV/Aids/STIs and get counselling

on birth control.
