Exclamation Different views between me and girlfriend

Hello,

Me and my girlfriend of 1.5 months both decided we don't want any kids, and she has an IUD in place. But she is still paranoid about being pregnant, and so am I to a certain extent.

One potential solution is to wear condoms all the time, but I'm wondering if anyone has gone through a similar situation, or have any ideas on how to come to an agreement somehow. I appreciate any insight.

Re: Different views on abortion between me and girlfriend

Hi, why would you try to establish a point of contention between the two of you over an event that has not even happened yet? Since she has been responsible about using her choice of birth control the rest is up to you. If you want to be safer then use the rhythm method or wear condoms, then in your head you will not worry about the what if.......

Re: Different views on abortion between me and girlfriend

Then it would be a good idea to double up on protection to be on the safe side. The distinction between men and women on this is you as the man do not have to worry about actually falling pregnant, it won't happen to you, ever, so she is the one carrying the greatest worry and the greatest fallout if it happens. So her views carry more weight when it comes down to it, if you were the one who would get pregnant, things would be reversed. Neither option is easy, the least you could do is support her choice since it takes two to get pregnant.
