For Men

My Girlfriend is Pregnant… Now What?!

Once she’s missed a period, everything can change—fast. Although she makes the final decision, most women really care what their partner thinks. Here are a few tips to help you make a decision you both agree on:

  • Let her know how important she is to you. Don’t pressure her to make a decision or check out emotionally. Commit to exploring your options together and getting whatever help you need to strengthen your relationship.
  • Let her know you’re there for her, each step of the way. Start by offering to go with her to her pregnancy testing appointment​.
  • Once the pregnancy has been confirmed, explore your pregnancy options together. Communicate openly about your feelings and consider which option might be best for you as a couple.
  • Listen to her thoughts and feelings. Ask her about her hopes or fears regarding abortion, adoption, and parenting. It may also help to get advice from someone you both trust!
