This post is an extension of the
Am I Having The Symptoms Of Pregnancy? thread.
Please continue posting within this thread.
On Jan 11, 12, 13 I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend of whom left for boot camp on the 14th of January. I had sex numerous times each day that we had sex and the only reason they were unprotected was because condoms make him lose his erection. I started my period on the night of the 13th, but it was extremely light, meaning more of a pink flow than a brilliant red flow, and lasted 7 days. Now, I am 3 days late for my period this month, I already have a child out of wedlock and I'm afraid to find out if I'm going to have another one.
Now I'm reading conflicting response all over the internet stating that I couldn't get pregnant and some say that you can get pregnant any day in your cycle. I have some of the same signs that I had when I was pregnant with my daughter 4 years ago. Nausea, when I got pregnant with my daughter I started getting sick immediately. That is how I knew I was pregnant. Some of the other symptoms that I've been experiencing are: Fatigue; Migraines; Frequent Urination; Certain foods make me sick to my stomach, just the scent of them; and lower abdominal lightly tightened by my pelvic bone.
To ALL on this topic- many obviously young people have written to ask if they're pregnant, or what they should do. Here are some basic facts
1: Do not assume or worry you are pregnant until you are LATE - more than 1 week. You probably aren't.
2. The time when you should ovulate, if your cycle is regular and proceeding as it ought, is in the Middle of the cycle. Between the 5th and 13th day after the End of the last period is when pregnancy will usually occur. This is giving a LOT of leeway for individual variations. It is Possible to get pregnant at any time, but UNLIKELY, as you would have to be off the normal cycle.
3. It is unlikely to get pregnant if a man does not ejaculate in the vagina, although it is a FAINT possibility as a few sperm may escape during penetration PRIOR to ejaculation (aka "precum")
If you are worried you could be pregnant, go to a Clinic - most places have anonymous Clinics for sexually transmitted infections testing, birth control, and pregnancy testing. Get a free test from a medical professional. Almost every country strictly punishes medical professionals from discussing patients - even WITH YOUR PARENTS, IF YOUR ARE A MINOR! Don't allow fear to prevent seeing a doctor - for your mental and physical health and that of a baby, (if there is one), you MUST see a doctor as soon as possible. Finding out from a medical professional EARLY allows you to have mor time to make decisions about what to do, if the pregnancy is unexpected.
Don't trust drug store urine tests too much. They are usually reliable if they say Positive, but *may give false negative results, especially if you have been drinking a lot of water or are early in pregnancy*.
Symptoms of Pregnancy:
1. Missed Period/ Late Period (more than 5 days)
2. Nausea/ vomiting - usually or ONLY on an *empty stomach*, feels Better when you eat (unlike a stomach virus or food poisoning which feels WORSE when you eat.)
3. Nausea which lasts for *more than 5 days.*
4. Sudden Aversion to certain foods or smells, heightened sense of smell.
5. Sudden change in sleep patterns - needing to sleep all the time, intense tiredness from normal activities.
The above signs are usually caused by pregnancy. If you have number 1 and any of the others, or No 1. and any two of these more common things below, GET A TEST>
constipation, frequent urination, cravings, mood swings, sore breasts, uterine cramping
These signs don't necessarily mean you are pregnant. there are MANY other things which cause them, more commonly than pregnancy. It's unwise to be too concerned unless you have several of these And have missed your period.
You can't tell if you're pregnant earlier than 1 week before your period is due, and tests are unreliable untill about 1 week after the period is due. It's virtually unheard of for women to experience symptoms earlier than the missed period.
No one online can tell you if you Are or Aren't - again, see your doctor or go to a clinic which specializes in anonymous reproductive health or teen health.
LAST - IF YOU HAVE EVEN A TINY SUSPICION YOU MIGHT BE PREGNANT, AVOID DRUGS AND ESPECIALLY ALCOHOL.
2 weeks ago, me and my bf had sex, we were protected but the condom broke, he had pre-cum in the condom before it broke. I was on birthcontrol but it wasnt working that month, 2 weeks before this situation, I had had my period heavy for a week then light for another week, so i hadnt been taking my birth control pills for that month. I took a pill that night and for one week after that night, then stopped taking it. its been 2 weeks and my period is only suppose to come in another week but I started bleeding lightly yesterday. usually my periods are very HEAVY so, im a little worried. Plus I have been acting a little odd, are these sighs of a pregnancy?
-sleeping less when i use to be able to sleep for over 12 hours
-eating alot of random foods.(i was up at 1 am last night eating ice cream sandwhichs and Raveoli)
-Im a very very happy person but i have been getting VERY irritable latly even at my best friends who never ever got under my skin before.
I havent taken a pregnancy test yet (im waiting another week)
Last year in august i got pregnant and was forced to abort my baby, Im now in the same situation but i aint to sure if im defo pregnant.. Im having all the signs, & ive missed my period but the pregnancy tests are showing negative. Ive taken 2 tests so far, & there both the same. I am going to take anuva one in a few days.
What should i do?
Could i still be pregnant ?
What do you think?
Did you use protection in your last sexual intercourse? Have you talk with your boyfriend about this?
You are young and I was sorry tot hear that you had to have an abortion last year. You need to wait for a two or three days and then test yourself again. If you are pregnant you need to talk to your parents.
I need to find out for sure my self before i tell anyone.
Thanks For Your Help :-)
