For Men

 Do you think she's pregnant?

 

You are not alone in this situation. The two of you can get through this. She needs you now more than ever.  It’s vitally important that you provide her with the support she needs --emotionally and physically. Here are some tips on how you do this.

What to do:

 

Talk with her and listen to her. Keep the lines of communication open between the two of you at all times. DO NOT close yourself off emotionally because this situation involves more than just you!

Be there for her. She needs you now more than ever before.

Talk with the people who care. In addition to keeping the lines of communication open between the two of you, it’s important to discuss the situation with parents and others who’ll be directly affected. Keeping this a secret will only add to the stress – yours and hers.

Educate yourself. Collect information and seek advice from people you trust.

Be honest with her and yourself. Own and share at all times how you feel. You’ll be surprised at how much it will help her to know that you share the same concerns. You’ll be surprised at what you learn about yourself. And you’ll be proud that you're standing tall together!

What Not To Do:

 

Don’t run from your responsibilities. The more you try to avoid this situation, the harder things will get for the three of you. Now. And forever.


Don’t pressure her to do what you want. You both need to work together at all times. You're a team now!


Don't stop communicating with her. Express your feelings and add your input whenever it’s needed.

 

Pregnancy Symptoms

Don't get caught worrying about being pregnant before you are sure. A missed period is the most common indication, but it doesn't necessarily mean you are pregnant.

Common pregnancy symptoms:

  • Late period
  • Tender or swollen breasts
  • Frequent urination
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Fatigue
  • Lightheadedness or fainting
  • Backaches
  • Food cravings or aversions
  • Darkening of the nipples

We will provide you with a free lab-certified pregnancy test. You will have the results during your appointment.

How accurate is the test?

Our tests are laboratory quality. They can detect the hCG pregnancy hormone as early as 7 days after conception or 21 to 24 days after the first day of your last period. The test is over 99% accurate.

Can I have a retest if my test is negative and my period doesn't start?

Yes, you may be rescheduled for another test. The hCG hormone doubles every couple of days during the first three months of pregnancy.

Should I see a doctor if I have a second negative test and have not started my period?

If you have concerns about missed periods and your pregnancy test continues to be negative, you should see you health care provider for assessment. If you need resources for health care, our center can provide you referrals.

 

Considering Your Choices

If you have a positive pregnancy test, you have three choices to consider:

Abortion

If you're thinking about finding an abortion clinic, it is important to remember that abortion is a medical procedure. What type will you have? What are the risks? You deserve to know the facts. You owe it to yourself to make an informed decision.

Perhaps you're thinking:

  • The father is insisting on an abortion
  • I'm not ready to be a parent
  • I can't tell anyone I'm pregnant

We know exactly how you feel and you're not alone. Many of our staff have been where you are. If you're considering abortion, you need to know:

  • Are you really pregnant?
  • Is your pregnancy normal? Or are you at risk for natural miscarriage? Or do you have a tubal pregnancy requiring immediate medical attention?
  • How far along are you?

You may also be interested in knowing:

  • What kinds of abortion are available to you?
  • What are your rights with abortion providers?
  • Are there any short-term or long-term risks to consider?

We can help you understand your choices and your pregnancy, discuss your health and explain your abortion options.

Adoption

You have lots of choices with adoption. Will it be open, semi-open, or closed? Will it be private or will you use an agency?

Today there are adoption plans in which you can know your child and be a part of your child's life. You can have the peace of knowing your child is loved and cared for by the couple you choose.

We can help you understand your adoption.

Parenting

You may have more questions than answers about parenting or maybe the thought of becoming a parent seems impossible to you at this time. We've talked to hundreds of clients who are concerned about things like this:

 

  • My husband or boyfriend doesn't want the baby but I do
  • (for men) My girlfriend doesn't want the baby but I do
  • I can't tell my family
  • How will I finish school?
  • How will I continue working?
  • Where will I live?
  • I don't have medical insurance
  • I can't afford a child
  • I'm too young
  •  

We can talk about all these issues with you so you can decide if parenting is right for you.
