The Women's Clinic knows dealing with an unexpected pregnancy is confusing and stressful for guys too. That's why we have free and confidential support services for men and women.
If your girlfriend thinks she might be pregnant, the first thing you need to do is find out that she really is pregnant and learn about your options. We provide confidential and free pregnancy tests along with many support services. Our center exists to help both of you come to an informed decision.
Your opinion counts! Don't be pressured to give up and let circumstances control you and the future of those you care about. What you do counts. Did you know that guys are the leading influencer on women today in their decision of what to do with an unexpected pregnancy? You have more influence than her mother, siblings and friends – don't make a decision out of fear or uncertainty that alters her life and yours forever. Get the information you need to make an informed decision.
You can start by showing your support and come with her for her pregnancy test. If she truly is pregnant then she is already being overwhelmed by hormone changes that can get in the way of her making good decisions. Having your physical support will reassure her that you care. Support doesn't mean silence. You have a voice in this decision too! She has several options before her and you should be part of the process to research your options and help her make an informed decision.
If she really is pregnant and wants to parent the child, you may not know how you feel about fatherhood right now. That's OK – parenting is tough at any age, but if you do become a dad before you intend to, we're here to help. The important thing to remember is that the life growing inside her depends on you as much as it does on her. We'll help you understand the changes going on in mom and baby, give you information on fatherhood and get you connected with area resources to help you care for the baby once he's born.
