Taking a pregnancy test can be stressful enough as is. However, when the test results are complicated and confusing, emotions can be even more heightened. Maybe you recently took a pregnancy test (or several), but the results have been back and forth, or difficult to interpret. This might have confused not only you, but your partner as well. What do you do when your boyfriend is stressed by these conflicting pregnancy test results?
Trying to interpret confusing pregnancy test results can bring added stress and conflict to a relationship. Figuring out how to get peace of mind and know for certain can be difficult. But Avenue Women’s Center, a first-step pregnancy center, is here to help you take a step forward during this uncertain time! Get accurate results you can trust, just ten days after conception.

Whether your boyfriend is hoping for a negative or positive test, it’s important to recognize that he’s having a difficult time with the current situation. While it’s easy to feel that your own emotions take precedence, if you’re invested in the relationship, it’s helpful to take time to connect with him. This is a difficult situation, but taking the time to slow down and figure out what’s going on can help!
Take Time to Relax
While relaxing is probably the last thing on your mind as you search for answers, it’s so important to carve out time to connect and rest! When we aren’t well-rested we tend to be more irritable and conflict may seem to become worse. Taking the time to nourish your body and mind through good sleep and mindfulness can be beneficial on the cusp of a big decision or unexpected news. Taking the time, too, to connect with your boyfriend as he struggles with stress and possible anxiety could be helpful for him. Maybe he needs some time alone, or just to discuss the situation with you.
Of course, the only way to truly get over the confusion you’re going through is to find out whether or not you’re pregnant. You can involve your boyfriend in this process if it would be helpful! Some of the best ways to find out can be:
- Medical-grade pregnancy test: Your doctor or OBGYN can administer a pregnancy test to you when you visit. Avenue Women’s Center or other free pregnancy clinics can also give you a medical-grade pregnancy test at no cost. Our tests provide accurate results just ten days after possible conception.
- Blood testing: blood testing measures the levels of hCG (pregnancy hormone) in your blood. This is a very accurate way to find out whether you are pregnant.
Move Forward With Peace
As you find certainty about your pregnancy status, you’ll be able to make decisions about your future. It’s never too late to explore your options and figure out what decision to make if you are pregnant. Discussing your options with your boyfriend and figuring out what you hope and dream for is a great thing to do!
Don’t let stress, confusion, and uncertainty determine your outlook, relationship, and life! Take solid steps forward today to put the stress to rest. Come to an Avenue Women’s Center near you to take one of our medical-grade pregnancy tests and discuss what’s next!
