For Guys

It’s not just about women! Guys, you’re important too and we’re here to help with any questions or needs you may have. Please give us a call at (845) 471-9284.

Unplanned Pregnancy
Men are often the forgotten partners during an unplanned pregnancy. At Care Net you can:

  • Attend the appointments with your partner
  • receive information concerning your options
  • meet with another guy to talk things over
  • attend Baby Basics classes

Sexual Health
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 Care Net, we can help you learn about how to protect yourself by making healthy choices for your sexuality that you can live with without regret.

After Abortion 
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: anger, helplessness, guilt, relationship problems, and grief. 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.

Care Net offers post abortion support groups for men as well as for women. As with all of our services, these groups are free and confidential. If you are a man who has been hurt by abortion, there is hope and there is healing.
