Could it be I feel sick because I'm scared to tell my mom?

User Profile
I had sex for the first time yesterday. The condom fell off.As soon as we realised he put it back on. The same happened again so we stopped having sex. He is 100 percent sure that he didn't cum. My mum doesn't know yet so I'm worried about telling her. I am feeling really sick but apparently you don't get morning sickness until about 4 weeks. Could it be that I feel sick because I'm scared to tell my mum? Or could it be that I'm pregnant. As I am 16 and unemployed I don't have the money to get the morning after pill so I'm really worried!

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. Your concern is regarding the status of your pregnancy.

Since the condom slipped off twice, chances of pregnancy are there and they are more so if you had intercourse close to ovulation. For confirming the status of pregnancy by urine for pregnancy test (UPT),the most accurate way to test for pregnancy is to wait until after your period is due. First appearance of pregnancy hormone, HCG, due to implantation occurs 6-12 days after ovulation. Ideally the urine for pregnancy test should be done 1 week after missing your periods. But you can test at 9 or 10 days past ovulation with a sensitive ( 20 - 25 mIU ) pregnancy test. I sincerely suggest you to do a urine for pregnancy test and if the test comes negative, then please wait for your periods and repeat the test after 1 week of your missed periods date if you miss your periods. You can also get serum HCG levels estimated. For that please consult a gynecologist.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and regards.
