Well I am glad you know now, as for getting on the pill though just know that you can still get pregnant, it can be a false sense of security....the only way to know for sure that you will not get pregnant is to not have sex, until you are married and in a financially and emotionally stable relationship you are risking so much by becoming pregnant...You are looking at strain on a relationship if there is no solid commitment, you are looking at a child who will be confused and heart broken if the relationship goes south, it is always better to just simply wait until marriage to have sex, as boring as it may sound...LOL...in reality it is just sex, there are many other aspects of the relationship to focus on until then, if you are going to get on the pill then no one here can stop you or change your mind, just know that it does fail and it can also mess with your hormones not to mention cause the death of a fertilized egg, aka baby, due to the hormone combination used to supposedly prevent pregnancy, if that fails then it just prevents implantation...you will have to live with your choices but I do wish that you would consider abstinence...Love Meg

Well, I just started my period today, (a week late too!)
I have mixed feelings, one on side there is a huge relief but also a little bit of sadness, as I was warming up to the idea of having a little one!
I've made an appointment with the doctor tomorrow so I can go on the pill, and one day my boyfriend and I will start a family when we are ready! (and can afford to! lol)
Thanks for the support :)

Thanks for all your advice, I really appreciate it as I feel I have no one else to turn to.
I told my mum and she just got angry that we didn't use protection, and told me to wait another week to see if my period is just late.
I love my boyfriend, I have been with him for 5 years in May, (we are both in our early 20s) but he is still studying and lives with his parents, and has no money, and I am looking for a job currently but I am in alot of debt, and I don't know how we are going to cope. If I am pregnant, I will keep the baby, but I don't know how he will feel, I had a scare a few months back and he took it really badly; he's kind of old fashioned and wants us to have a stable home and jobs before starting a family.
I still haven't had my period yet, and its 6 days overdue now, I got really bad cramps this afternoon and I was convinced it was my period, but theres still no blood.

Everyone has had wonderful advice so far so I do not have too much more to add, I did want to let you know about a helpful number though, 1-800-395-HELP, it is a place called Optionline, they will give you the name and number of the closest Pregnancy Resource Center to you where you can get a FREE and CONFIDENTIAL test and they are there to help you with any decision making depending on the results...Love Meg

Hi,
I'm sorry your not feeling well, but you are correct. Sometimes symptoms of a period will resemble prenatal symptoms. Especially if you're late.

At this point...since you've moved back home, I would advise talking to your parents and clearing the air with them. Tell them what is happening and confide in them that you're scared and need help. Begin there....If your parents are relatively aware of your life, they may already have an idea of what has been going on. Be mature about what has happened and take the responsibility of your actions by going to them for help. You shouldn't have to lurk behind them trying to handle this on your own. You will feel less worried once they are involved and you will have the resources you need to get to a doctor to get a blood test done. They are the most accurate. If you are pregnant...you will need to be seen by one very soon for prenatal care, so telling your parents now and letting them help you in the early stages of this will only lighten the pressure on you. (although you may feel like that is a scary thing....parents do want to help their children.)

Think about how you're feeling with the possibility of being pregnant....Is that good news for you? Is this what your boyfriend wants? Are you wondering whether to keep the baby or offer it up for adoption?? These are real issues that may need to be discussed. You can certainly go get a pregnancy test and never tell your parents...and if it's negative they will never know the difference. Does life go on as it has been? Taking chances with unprotected sex with your boyfriend and hoping you don't?? If you're not pregnant.....you can take that opportunity to take control of your life and stop risking an unplanned pregnancy. Think about your life now and and make more mature decisions so that you will not be in this situation again.

If you ARE pregnant....then please consider telling your parents. You can't do this alone without a support group. They will get you to a doctor and hopefully support you in keeping your baby.

God bless,
myangelsinheaven
