im 17 and a junior in high school. ive never had sex and neither has my boyfriend until about 3 weeks ago. the first time i had sex, my boyfriend and i used a condom the 2nd and 3rd time we didnt. the last time was 3 weeks ago.

im on birth control and i usually take it regularly but last month i missed 4 days (not consistantly) and made it up the next morning, then i took that days that night. (Ex. i missed wednesday so i made it up thursday morning at 5:30am when i get up for school and took thursdays at 10:00pm on thursday night.)

our sex didnt last long and he "pulled out" which i know still leaves a chance for pregnancy.

Lately, like the past week ive been tired and nasueas and have stomach cramps and neck cramps. i also have a runny nose sore throat and im coughing. but idk if its because i should be on my period now, or i have a cold or im pregnant. but i take the pill continuously so i dont have a period at all. and i also just had prom two nights ago and didnt get to sleep until 4am.

i know it sounds ridiculous but me and my boyfriend decided not to have sex anymore because of the risks. and im just hoping its not to late. i know if i really want to know i should take a test but what are your guys opinions. thanks very much! :]

It can't hurt to take a test. Wait until 14 days have passed since your last sexual encounter.

Why have unprotected sex? That is scary!

They'll test you for free at planned parenthood and you can probably also get free birth control. NEVER have sex without the minimum of a condom.

Paranoid about pregnancy..
I have a similar prob but i most likely think i'm paranoid because i'm still a virgin, but i have not had my period and i keep getting dizzy spells and constantly feel sick. It could be possible for me but when you live with two older brothers that use the same towels, go the same places, and dont usually put their clotheas on till 3 o'cloc.. i start to worry. I know it probally sounds stupid but things like that have happened before ad i worry because i am only 13. I also use 'Tarot cards' (fortune telling) and they keep giving signs of pregnancy and i have beeen having dreams about it to, just before my period was due. Please tell me i'm stupid and to stop worrying.

Melodii, You do not get pregnant from sitting on the same toilet seat, using a towel or being around nude males. And virgins getting pregnant will normally make the news as it (almost) never happens.

If your brothers are acting inappropriately around you, you need to tell an adult IMMEDIATELY.

Take care!
