You just found out that she might be pregnant. As the man, you may feel like you aren’t going to be making the 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, Pregnancy Resource Center Medical Clinic has been helping couples navigate their pregnancy decisions since 2008.
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, and aren’t sure of the results. At this point, she needs a lab-quality pregnancy test read by a medical professional and an ultrasound to confirm if she is pregnant.
Our staff is here to listen and give you both the information needed to make an informed decision. Guys talking to guys. No cost. No pressure. Completely confidential.
