Let me start off by saying I’ve never been more nervous/anxious in my life. I’m only 17. I lost my virginity about 2 months ago to my boyfriend of almost 2 yrs. The last time we had sex was on July 25th (today is August 13th). We used a condom when he came, but it got stuck inside. Not all of it though. Anyways, I wasn’t worried at all. Until I got my “period” on August 10th, that’s 5 days earlier than usual, and exactly 15 days after we were together. It’s never that early and if it is early it only comes a day or two before. Not only was it extra early, it wasn’t like any of my usual periods at all. It was light, and I mean LIGHT. I had only light brown spotting, I only had to change my pad once a day, it lasted only 3 days. At this point I was concerned and googled it and from what ive read it can be an “implantation period”. I still have some odd cramps and im extremely tired. I’ve also gained some weight and have been feeling a little more bloated than usual. I have no clue what to do, where to start, who to tell. I will be taking a pregnancy test within the next two days, but I am honestly terrified.
Unfortunately the only way to have an accurate pregnancy test is to wait until you have missed your period by at least 5 days. If that has actually happened, you can take a pregnancy test. If you need help with one, you can text the word PREGNANT to 313131 or go to http://www.optionline.org to find a pregnancy center in your area where you can get a FREE and CONFIDENTIAL pregnancy test.
Often times your body is reacting to all the hormones you are now releasing when you are having sex, and this can change your period dates and flow. If you are worried about being pregnant and you are not really ready to be a parent, the only 100% full proof birth control is abstinence. There is nothing you can do or purchase that is 100% accurate in preventing pregnancy than not doing it at all. Just something to think about…it’s a big responsibility and risk you are taking be having sex when you are not really ready to have a baby.
Please let me know how your pregnancy test goes.
