Hi - did you get sorted out yet? It sounds like a really scary situation. I know its embarressing, but you could always go to the doctor for a free pregnancy test. Your doctor absolutely should not tell your parents - its called patient confidentiality, so you shouldn't worry about that. Just try to think of the doctors visit as being only about 15 cringe worthy minutes out of your whole life. Its better that than having to tell your parents when you are a few months pregnant and in a position where you have no other choice than to carry on with the pregnancy. At least this way you have a choice... AND you may not even be pregnant. Go easy on yourself, this situation has been happening to millions of girls all over the world.

Donnah agony auntMany things could cause your period to be delayed. Pregnancy may be on the top of that list right now. At 15 I would be concerned to. Get to your doctor ASAP, if you're concerned about parents being present, slip a note to your doctor, they'll ask parents to step out. Or find a place that does free confidential pregnacy tests, usually in the newspaper.

You are not old enough to have a child. These are the consequences of having sex. Just like you shouldn't drink unless you're of age. 18 is the drinking age where I am from. Abortion is not the answer and in fact causes long term problems (i.e. sterile, depression, grief) despite what people may tell you.

Prevention is the answer! Either protect yourself or don't do it!

You didn't mention who you had sex with but if it were a one night stand, do you have an STD? Research it and you'll find that most STDs don't have symptoms. And HIV & AIDS is high amongst teenagers due to ignorance.

And raising a child alone is another consequence of not knowing who you share your bed with. Be careful who you share with.

This may not be what you want to hear but this is what YOU NEED TO HEAR!

Good luck to you!

beentheredonethat agony auntSuper market pregnancy tests are actually very reliable provided you are pregnant enough to trigger them. Don't buy the cheapest and get one of those that are you just pee on it. However Know that the progesterone they measure is more concentrated in you morning urine...which means as you get out of Bed...not any time from 8 am until noon....and you must be a certain number of days pregnant....not just oh I had sex on Tuesday and my period should have been here Friday....and it is Monday oh my!!! I believe it is something like 14 days from implant...and that means when the fertile egg attaches to your cervix...not the day you had sex. it takes from 3 to seven days for that to happen so you must be 21 days pregnant for a test to have the possibility to trigger a positive. when people go have sex then test every day for a month....they say...Oh those tests are not very accurate. Really they are...but most people are Soooo wanting one result or the other that they read them wrong by wishful thinking rather than instructions or they test before the thing can hope to work.

I hope you have learned the very significant consequences of random sex without having to live with it for you whole life. everyone else has already mentioned STDs so I will not harp....But Please...value yourself, your parents and your future lovers/husband and children enough to take a second and insist on a condom. A best friend died recently childless...because she caught VD and was too afraid to tell her parents...and by the time she got was to late...and they found out anyway and had to live with no grandchildren...all because she didn't have the guts to tell a stupid little boy that he needed to wear a condom if he wanted to fulfill his evenings plans. Oh...he had four lovely children and never told his wife what he did to my friend....

If you are big enough to have better be big enough to deal with stuff i going to be pregnant or dead because he is to selfish to wear a bit of latex? You are worth more than that..

wish you best luck and hope everything works out for you and that you have just had a good scare that will make you think harder in the future...if not. Go see your parents and allow them the chance to help you...that is what they are there for. If not aunt...or whatever...but don't jump the gun until you know for sure you are definitely pregnant. If you are afraid of your parents...let your doctor do the may blunt the blow a bit. Best luck....

Along with everyone else's advice, please, please, please ensure that you use a condom the next time you have sex - especially if a casual encounter.

All the best

Toria agony auntThe first thing you need to do is go see your doctor and get a blood test done to check if your pregnant as this is more reliable than a shop brought test, especially if your not use to taking pregnancy tests, then you can go from there on your next options.

Good luck :o)

Id suggest you get yourself straight down to your GP or your local family planning clinic (you will find the number in the phone book) where they will offer you a free pregnancy test, both services are confidential and therefore noone will find out. I would also strongly suggest that you ask them to screen you for any sexually trasnmitted infections such as Chlymidia whilst your at it if youve had unprotected sex.

Pregnancy tests that you purchase from the supermarket are not always reliable which you have obviously found out. My Sister did 3 tests all where negative but it turned out she was actually pregnant. Good luck x
