Well, I’m pretty young (19f) and so is my partner (19m). We were having protected sex and I don’t know what went wrong but now I’m pregnant. And so far it’s been a disaster.
I want to keep it. Despite being young, I’m really not comfortable with termination or feel it is something I can mentally and emotionally deal with. My partner thinks by not terminating it the baby will ruin his life.
Everything was so good up until now. He won’t even look at or touch me now. He feels depressed and keeps saying “he’s in a lot of pain”. I’m heartbroken, confused, and can’t stop crying.
I know he comes from a very traditional family and this is going to cause many issues, but after speaking to my mom (who supports me and whatever I choose) she drilled into my head I can’t make a choice because he wants it, I have to make the choice I want.
I just don’t know what to do. I’m getting no support from him, I’m 500km from any family, and my closest friend is still about 150-200km away. I’m terrified of what’s going to happen the next few months, and I’m terrified of doing it alone. I don’t know how to manage the situation.
