You just found out that your girlfriend thinks she might be pregnant. As a guy, you may feel like you don’t want to, or need to, deal with this decision. That’s why we’re here.
She needs you but you may not know what to do. For example, we frequently hear men say they told their significant other, “I’ll support whatever you decide” thinking that’s what she wants to hear, but you may actually be communicating something completely different to her.
These three ideas will help both of you get through this time and make informed decisions about the future.
- Assure her that she is not alone, and that you will be there for her.
- Try to understand her fears, and admit you have fears, too.
- Get some coaching from a trusted source about your options.
Try to understand what her fears may be, and resolve to be there for her. It’s important to slow down and take one step at a time. For this reason, Choices Women’s Clinic has been helping couples navigate their pregnancy decisions since 1983.
Many times women think they may be pregnant at the first symptom of pregnancy without taking a test…or they take a store-bought test, which can be inaccurate. At this point, she needs a medical pregnancy test and an ultrasound to see if she is really pregnant or not. We can provide that FREE and CONFIDENTIAL.
Our staff is here to listen and give you the information you need to make an informed decision. No cost. No pressure. COMPLETELY CONFIDENTIAL.
