There was a very easy solution to this. If she thinks she is pregnant, take an at home pregnancy test before taking Plan B. Also, Plan B is only effective at preventing pregnancy if taken within a certain window and does not cause a miscarriage, as it is not the abortion pill. Please educate yourself and your girlfriend about condoms and other forms of birth control if you do not want a child right now.

There are a lot of times where you might think you’re pregnant and it could be due to stress, etc. Normally, they don’t do ultrasounds to check, proactively, without there being a reason but if they did a urinalysis then they wouldn’t seen it. I wouldn’t worry about it - it certainly doesn’t sound like you terminated a pregnancy. You took Plan B which is responsibility after being responsible. Besides, it only prevents, not aborts. So no way to terminate pregnancy because of it. I’ll also note that a lot, and I mean a lot, of pregnancies occur and are miscarried in one way or another. Possibly before it’s even realized. Sounds like she and you might’ve realized you want a kid. Maybe together, maybe not. Talk that one through. - my wife is pregnant with #3 and we had a miscarriage a few years back.

This is not how plan B works. Plan B stops ovulation and therefore any chance at fertilizing that egg, it is a BCP 5x as strong. It will not end an existing pregnancy. It is in her head.

Why was she getting an ultrasound at the gyno? Did she have a positive pregnancy test that led to her getting one?

Condoms and the pill. Pretty solid effectiveness when utilized in conjunction with each other.

Sorry man. Hopefully she’s pro choice.

Should I have a second child? I met my husband later in life at 37 yo. We had our first when I was 39.

I’ll be 41 in March so we need to start now. I love the ease and flexibility of one child and she’s been such good baby. I’m worried that if we have another I’ll regret it. I’m also about to start a new job.
