Alright, I’m going to try to keep this as basic but detailed as possible. I’m nearly 17 years old and I recently became sexually active in mid August.
So here it is.
Before I became sexually active with my partner, we played around a lot. There was one occasion where he pre-came against my underwear, I immediately went and wiped off my underwear, (which I later found out sperm can’t go through clothes). I didn’t experience pain until a week after. I took two HPT tests around the13th and the 21st of August. And by Saturday the 23rd, I had my period in which I hadn’t had for two or three months. My period did it’s thing with it’s normal amount of blood and time. After my period stopped by Wednesday the 27th, we had had sex without actually finishing on Friday the 29th. We used protection after my first freak out.
We’ve continued to have sex safely but never actually finishing. We had switched to a larger condom early on after becoming sexually active because his thickness, but occasionally we’d have to slide it back down because it was coming up, there was one occasion it was half way up his shaft before we noticed. I was and am scared. After my period, by about a week or two, I began to have pains again. Still these pains were around my abdomen, behind and below my belly button, on my sides and my back. Between The start of August and up to Thursday morning September 25th, I have taken 8 pregnancy tests; once a week. He has gone with me each time to buy them and he was always there when I took them and been supportive and comforting.
Last week I began to have my period symptoms, it has been over a week and still no period and my acne is dying.
I am normally intune with my body, but recently I’ve been stressed over the past two months about possibly being pregnant that I’ve been obsessing over watching how my stomach appears. I don’t know if I’ve been imagining things now or then, but I feel like I might be getting fatter. Which scares me that I might be pregnant. When I took Midol thinking it might be bloating, it didn’t do much. So, now I’m scared. I took my last test on Thursday the 25th first thing in the morning, it came out negative. All results have come out negative. I’ve taken all my tests at all times of the day. First morning urine (cause the HGC hormones or whatever), lunch and even at night.
I haven’t had morning sickness, not a lot of fatigue besides what school does to me, no breast tenderness, my areolas haven’t darkened, no food cravings. I have backaches with my PMS symptoms and just normal backaches from my bed anyways. No implantation bleeding, and I have an irregular period so I don’t know if I’ve missed it or not! 🙁
All summer I was working at Arby’s and drinking a lot of Pepsi, so when I quit for school I had a caffeine withdraw from the 25th of August to about the 31st of August. Lots of headaches. It scared me cause I wasn’t sure if I was pregnant, so I took HPT tests. I have a single father as my parent. He doesn’t know I’ve been sexually active yet. I sure as heck don’t want to be pregnant, but I’m not ready to say ‘Hey dad, I became sexually active in August, and these pains I’m getting might mean I’m pregnant. Want to take me to get blood tests?’ That is not exactly my idea of a good time. As a matter of fact, I’ve never been to a gynecologist. Never had a family doctor nor insurance. I’m going on the pill soon if I have my period. If I don’t, I might go seeking medical attention.
I just wanted to get some opinions before I went to the doctors. Please help!September 30, 2008 at 12:37 pm #22420nadza

Hey….i havent been pregnant but i do have a close friend who is 17 and does have a young child, she says that from reading your problem it does just look as though your period may come as you do not seem to have had many other symptoms, stress can cause to delayed periods as i have suffered from that before and that scared me! if you really are that worried wait until your next period and then take another test and again if negative and your still worried, visit your doctor, there they can talk to you and do a blood test..hopefully everything comes out alrite for you…keep me posted xOctober 1, 2008 at 12:47 am #22427KitteySniper
Thanks guys. I think maybe I’m stressing out too. I’ve been stressed out about it since August, and I think it’s jsut causing problems. The thing is, when I’m at school and not thinking about it, I’m fine. However, when I come home and I’m done with all my studies and am not reading, it’s like the anxiety that I should of felt all day just slaps me across the face.
I talked to my partner as well this morning before I went to school, we’re going to go Friday if my period hasn’t started by then to get some more HPT tests. He said the same thing about being paranoid to me last night. So, maybe I am. Thanks so much for the help and advice! I’m glad to hear from some of the experienced that they don’t think I’m pregnant. Again, thank you so much!October 2, 2008 at 12:47 am #22445KitteySniper
I forgot to add in something about why I’m a bit scared.
I keep having pains underneath my upper right rib, my naval area, my right side, near my right hip bone and my left and at my abdomen.They’re not sharp pains, mostly dull ones. . . I’ve read somewhere on a pregnancy site it happens in the early stages of pregnancies, where it’s basically just making room for the baby. . .
I talked to a pre-med teacher at my school today, I described my situation and the symptoms, she thinks it may be a digestive problem, or something else. But she didn’t seem to want to say much, probably for fear of giving bad advice. Does anyone know the likeliness along with my other stuff I had in my original post?
The help is much appreciated! Thanks!October 2, 2008 at 5:09 am #22470Anonymous
Hmm… I’d say it’s always a possibility. BUT I think, like the other girls, that it’s only stress and your body is reacting to the stress by making the symptoms up.
As for your pains, I got small sharp pains in my lower abdomen, where my uterus was stretching. If it’s all over your belly/rib area, I doubt that’s pregnancy to begin with. The pre-med teacher is right (I’m only a freshman, but also studying health), it is signs of digestive problems. It seems like your period has become irregular. I suggest that you go to a gynocologist for testing.
Hope it all works out!October 3, 2008 at 4:29 am #22501KitteySniper
back again with another set of pains.
Alright. I do believe I’ve gotten bigger stomach wise. But what I notice is that my ribs have become bigger than anything else. Earlier I was having a bad pain behind my belly button. My navel area was hurting again too. Today the pains were on my right side, cramps and dull pains. I even got some pain under my right ribs. I got pain on my left side, and I had some lower back pain. I’ve been doing extensive research about what my pre-med teacher and Autum have said.
I have 2/13 pregnancy symptoms which are backache and abdominal bleeding (It may be 3 of 13, but I have an irregular period so I don’t know! 8( ) But I have 2 of 3 gas problem symptoms, abdominal bloating and abdominal pain, and there was way TOO many symptoms for digestive problems to be counted, but from the ones I read, I only had a couple! I’m so freaking scared about tomorrows test and I’m still so confused! Any ideas as to the possibility of being pregnant! I know I’ve asked this, but anyone else got some more ideas?
Pregnant? (Can’t wait till tomorrow to take another test)October 3, 2008 at 1:50 pm #22504GangY
well i would say..i doubt that is a pregnancy… you may just stressing and cause youre lookin all the stuff up about simptoms, you put that in your head and your body starts to have those simptoms..
well yea it is a possibility of being pregnant, but i would say youre not, you should relax, stop thinkin bout it all the time, just give time the time it needs, and then youll find out.
that’s actually the only way to know. dont stress and wait..October 6, 2008 at 1:41 am #22553010109 was going to be

Alright! Went to a clinic today! Good news is, they did a urine test for pregnancy, came out negative. They detected something in my urine on another test, so I’m on some meds for that for 5 days. I have to go back for a papsmere or whatever and a physical on the 3rd of November. They don’t know what’s with the pain. But the good news is that I’m not pregnant 😀October 9, 2008 at 6:59 pm #22624Anonymous
I am glad to hear that! Thank you for keeping us updated! 🙂October 22, 2008 at 2:45 am #22758KitteySniper
Yeah my period came again October 11th – October 16th. So I’m still fairly sure I’m not pregnant, although I do think I’ve gotten more fat, but I still weigh what I have for years. So I’m starting to work out. I’ll put up another update as soon as I go to the doctors on the 3rd. I might have them do one more test to be safe. Still no symptoms of any pregnancy, thank God. I’m still a little worried, but it’s been over two months, so I think I would of been showing by now. Right? I am a little worried but just trying to keep myself busy. Wanted to say thanks to everyone for all their support and advice! 😀 Thanks 🙂October 23, 2008 at 2:08 am #22778Anonymous
I would say that you really need to go to a doctor still… this could be a problem otherwise. Don’t stress if you miss your period, it’ll delay it even longer, though.October 24, 2008 at 1:20 am #22796KitteySniper
Well I had my period, and it’s irregular so I don’t know if it will come next month or not. Today I had a brown discharge, but from research it’s either due to ovulating/my period or being pregnant. Still having pains in my back and ribs and stuff. I’m going to have them do another pregnancy test when I’m there. Maybe see instead if I can get a blood test. That would be the most accurate way, right?
I have no clue what’s going on with my body. I still haven’t gone back to the doctors, when I go back the 3rd of November they’re doing a paps mere and a physical O_o My first time to anything like this, kind of scared, but will make it through. I’m trying not to stress out, but it’s hard not to for me. I’m always under stress, but this is just more. Oh well, just have to wait until the 3rd.October 25, 2008 at 10:23 pm #22820Anonymous
Yep. That is the way to go. Blood tests are much more effective than an HPT.
Don’t worry about the pap smear. It’s not really that uncomfortable. I was stressed out about it, and I also have a male doctor. It took only a minute and doesn’t hurt normally, except for if you tense up your legs which I did. Haha. The most uncomfortable part is waiting without your parnts on. o.oNovember 12, 2008 at 4:09 am #23095KitteySniper
Well. Finally got to the girl doc today.
another negative preg test.
They didn’t do a pap smear.
They did a physical
And a cervical test. That was uncomfortable.
Then she had to stick her fingers up in me and poke around feeling all my girl organs.
She thinks all the pain and bloating in my abs is from a cyst on my left ovary.
Going to a hospital monday to get a vaginal ultrasound.
