I'm 17, and I am 5 months pregnant.

Hey I'm 17, and I am 5 months pregnant. Well one day this guy, my baby's father, called and asked me out but I ignored him. He got so pissed off and threatened to destroy me. I didn't care. One of this friends was a good friend of mine he took me to his place. I was shocked when I saw my child's father there. Well he threatened me and I had sex with him. After some time I came to know I was pregnant. I never told my parents but I told him that I was pregnant. The guy is sometimes nice but sometimes he beats me. Please tell me what should I do.

Editor's Comment

If this man has threatened you and beaten you then it is an abusive relationship, and you need to end it, and seek help on how to stay safe. You cannot risk hoping that it won't happen again, and you need to protect yourself particularly when you are vulnerable. I would suggest logging into Online advisor for unplanned pregnancy support. or calling the national helpline. There are also specific helplines for domestic abuse domestic violence helpline
