Men are often the forgotten partners during an unplanned pregnancy. At the Pregnancy Support Center of Ulster County, men are welcome to take part in free counseling sessions and to receive information concerning their options. We recognize that each situation and each individual are unique and we are committed to empowering you to make positive choices.
Becoming a father can be a scary time in your life. At the Pregnancy Center we understand your concerns and are here to help with information about parenting from a father's perspective, referrals for assistance you may need, and ongoing counseling directed at your particular needs and circumstances.
If you are sexually active, you are not only at risk for facing an unplanned pregnancy, but you are also at risk for contracting a STI or STD (sexually transmitted infection or disease). Some of the STIs/STDs are curable and some are not. At the Pregnancy Center, we can help you learn about how to protect yourself by making healthy choices for your sexuality that you can live with, without regret.
Research suggests that men often experience a profound sense of loss following abortion. The most common problems experienced by post-abortive men include the following:
- Relationship problems
Given the magnitude of their loss, it is normal for men to struggle with these problems and emotions. Also, it is not uncommon for men to repress their own negative emotions as they try to be a strong support for their partners. This may make it more difficult for men to recognize and deal with their painful emotions. However, if such feelings are not resolved, they may lead to more serious consequences such as clinical depression or an inability to maintain healthy relationships. The Pregnancy Center of Ulster County offers post abortion counseling for men as well as for women. As with all of our services, this counseling is free and confidential. If you are a man who has been hurt by abortion, there is hope and there is healing.
We do not provide or refer for abortions.
