No-Cost and Confidential Women's Center

Sharing your intended pregnancy decision with your boyfriend can create a lot of anxiety and stress. You may question whether you really need to share the news.

Trust is crucial in a healthy relationship, so it’s worth sharing this news. Although this is your pregnancy, the situation affects him, too. Open communication is essential during this time.

Informed Choices Women’s Center can help you navigate an unexpected pregnancy. We’re here if you and your boyfriend want to discuss your options. Make a no-cost, confidential appointment to learn more.

Am I Safe?

You aren’t obligated to share this news with your boyfriend, but it’s important to consider it if you wish to continue your relationship. Withholding critical information can break down communication and create a sense of mistrust.

However, if your boyfriend is abusive, there are other things to consider. Abuse of any kind is always unacceptable, and it can escalate during pregnancy if your partner is jealous or angry.

Do not share sensitive information with an abusive boyfriend. You deserve safety. Call 911 during an emergency, and contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline for 24/7 support, like making a safety plan.

Your Next Steps

Before discussing an intended pregnancy decision, you should learn everything possible about your options. If you are considering abortion, remember that it is a major medical decision. Your boyfriend may have questions or concerns, so be prepared to address any that come up.

It’s best to be honest about your pregnancy and intended decision. Your boyfriend could react with shock or anger. He may need time to process the news, or perhaps he has opinions about a pregnancy decision.

You’ll need to decide his role in the decision-making process. Will you include his input? If you do, you may be surprised to learn that he’s more interested in an option like parenting than expected.

Information is available if you want to make a pregnancy decision together. Informed Choices Women’s Center can offer options education following your appointment with a nurse. We’ll explain abortion, adoption, and parenting to you both.

We don’t provide or refer for abortions, but we’ll supply the facts so you can make an educated decision. The nurse can also direct you to other services, including a limited ultrasound if you receive a positive pregnancy testing result at the center. This scan provides crucial details needed to protect your health.
