You may want to make a quick decision to ‘fix’ the situation. However, take some time and consider your response.
Men often feel at a loss about how to respond. Sometimes they can feel as if they have no part in making the decision, particularly as issues surrounding unintended pregnancies can often be seen as ‘a woman’s right to choose’ – leaving men feeling shut out and redundant.
You may be glad to be relieved of the responsibility. You may even feel that your partner should make the decision by herself. In our experience few women want to make a choice about the future of their pregnancy without the support and input of their partner.
