i had unprotected sex on the 17, 30, and 31. Shocked im 16 and have VERY regular periods. my last period stared on the 11th of december ended on the 16th, 17th. im typically 30 days never really off. maybe a day give or take.. on friday the 2nd, i had very very light pink spotting/bleeding. on the evening of the third (about 10pm) i started to really bleed (one super tampon a day) typically i will go through about three a day. and one pad. i havent used a pad at all and its less then normal. i did a test and it was negative, but im not due for my period till the 12th. idk if im just over freaked if i could be pregnant or if my period just came early?

Wait until the 12th and test again. You are still young and women's bodies change, every period isn't the exact same as all the periods before it.

If you do not wish to become pregnant, you should use some type of birth control. You can get it for free at any planned parenthood near you - they have condoms, birth control pills, pregnancy testing. Your parents never have to know.

the problem with going to a pp is that i live in a VERY small area in oregon and in small town everyone knows your bussiness. and its hard to drive 60 miles both ways to get to a pp. and you cant go to our little local store and buy condoms without seeing 5 people you know including your moms best friends daughter who tells her mom everything. and being sexually active and not being marryed is looked down apon here. my parents know im sexually active but they ignor it
