How Can a Partner Help?

The client’s partner is welcome to participate in counseling and learn about the method and what support he can give to his partner. A male partner can:

  • Support a woman’s choice to use ECPs
  • Understand and support her need to choose and use a continuing method

  • Help to make sure she has ECPs on hand in case she needs them again

  • If she needed ECPs because of a mistake with a method, understand and support correct use of the method or discuss using a different method
