If you are facing an unplanned pregnancy it’s not unusual to feel overwhelmed with all the unknowns and questions you have. One of those unknowns is being afraid of how your partner will react to the news that you are pregnant.
You may be worried they will panic and be angry at you and the situation. The first thing to remember is that your personal safety is the most important thing. If you are ever in a situation where you feel like you are in physical danger then call 911 right away and attempt to get to a safe place.
It’s also important to remember you have the legal protection to make decisions for the health of your body, and no one else–not even your partner–has the right to force you into a decision about what option is best for handling your unplanned pregnancy
Get the Facts
When you tell your partner you are pregnant they will likely feel overwhelmed with the same concerns and fears you felt when you first discovered you were pregnant.
At-home pregnancy tests can sometimes give a false positive, and some pregnancies will end in miscarriage. Confirming your pregnancy with a medical-grade pregnancy test and an ultrasound scan can help rule out these types of issues.
