Perhaps you are wondering if the baby is even yours. Maybe family and friends are encouraging you to push her to have an abortion. Perhaps there are so many questions and concerns at this point that you simply don't know what to do. Whatever the situation, you are not alone. Lots of men find themselves where you are.
The first thing to do is take some deep breaths and calm down. We can help you get through all of this. Abortion may seem like an easy answer but it does have significant risks that you may not be aware of. Having a baby does not mean the end of your dreams and plans for your future.
It may be called a "woman's choice" to have an abortion but rarely does she want to make that decision alone. Many women report waiting for their boyfriend/husband to tell them that all well be "ok" if she makes a different decision. Many women say after their abortion that they were laying on that exam table "waiting for my boyfriend/husband to rush into the room and tell me not to go through with the abortion". She needs you to help her make the very best decision for both of you. We are here to help! We can explain all the options to each of you and help you to formulate a plan for the future.
She needs your friendship, your strength and your support right now more than ever.
MyLife Medical & Resource Centers offer free pregnancy tests and ultrasounds. Encourage her to make an appointment with our office right away. We can help answer the questions "Is she pregnant?" and "How far along is she?"
First, let's find out if she is pregnant and how far along she is. Contact MyLife Medical & Resource Center to set up an appointment for a free pregnancy test and ultrasound. Once pregnancy has been verified, we can walk you both through the options that are available for this pregnancy. There is more than one option. And we are here to help.
If abortion still seems the very best decision for this pregnancy, the following is a list of questions you need to ask at the abortion clinic. It is best not to leave the first abortion clinic appointment until these questions (and any others you think of) are answered fully and completely to your satisfaction.
Remember that abortion does not erase a mistake it only adds new ones. Abortion is PERMANENT. There is no "undoing" this decision. Come into one of our offices so we can discuss all of the options available.
If she chooses abortion or has already participated in an abortion, be prepared for "Post Abortion Stress Syndrome" (PAS). One or more of the following problems could be experienced by either one of you or both of you. Men hurt from abortion decisions, too. If you see any signs of any of the following, please seek professional counseling. Do not allow these issues to begin ruling your life.
If you or your girlfriend/wife is experiencing any of the above symptoms, please understand that you are not alone and help is available. Contact MyLife Medical & Resource Centers to find out more.
We are here for both of you.
Having an STD during an abortion can cause serious problems for the patient. Be sure that she has been tested for STDs before the abortion. We offer free & low cost STD testing at MyLife Medical & Resource Centers. Contact us today for more information.
We are now offering STI/STD testing for men. There are charges involved with some of the testing. Please contact MyLife Medical & Resource Centers for more information.
If you have been sexually active AT ALL you need to be tested. Some STDs are spread with skin-to-skin contact so a person can still "technically" be a virgin and have an STD. Almost all STDs show no initial symptoms. Please don't wait for some type of symptom to appear before seeking medical attention. Take control of your health and get tested!
Knowledge is power. Take control. Get tested. Get treated. Get healthy.
