phobia of getting pregnant again

Earlier this year, I got pregnant and had an abortion. I was still in high school. I had the abortion alone, without telling anyone except my boyfriend. I didn't even tell my parents. Now I am terrified of getting pregnant again. It happened 6 months ago but recently I have been having dreams of being pregnant and being uphappy by it. I am so scared of being pregnant (I am still sexually active, although I am not on the Pill) and I find myself stressing about when my period comes and being paranoid about if I am pregnant AGAIN. I don't know what to do, or who to talk to. I'm heading off the college and I'd like to not worry about this anymore, but I am so terrifyed to getting pregnant again. I never had any qualms about having the abortion but I'm still unhappy.. Help me...

If you continue to have unprotected sex, you WILL get pregnant again. You need to get on some sort of birth control. If you're scared about your parents finding out then believe me, they'll be a lot happier that you're using protection than if they found out you were having sex without it.

You have a lot of options when it comes to contraception.. you could get on the pill, the patch, the depo shot or even get a contraceptive implant if you want a more long-term solution. Do some research & choose a method that you think would suit you. Getting it sorted now will mean that you can enjoy your time at college & not have to worry about getting pregnant every month.

Your going to get pregnant again if you don't get protective. Your what 18? Going to college. Do the responsible thing and get your self on some birth control. You will most likely stress less. You will be protected against pregnancy, instead of just hoping your not..

Abstinence and Idiocy
The answer's plain and simple, don't have sex.
If you're so freaked out by the idea of getting preggo in highschool, it obviously means you aren't really ready to have sex either. Abstinence is the only sure way to avoid pregnancy.
You should really wait until you're ready to have a kid, to have sex anyway. I know, the idea of abstinence is kinda lame, BUT HEY, YOU WON'T GET PREGNANT.
About the dreams, well that's the fear of it. Believe me, I have certain phobias that always manifest themselves in my dreams (though mine are about missing the bus XD, the only way to make it stop, is to ASSURE YOURSELF THAT YOU WON'T GET PREGNANT. Abstain or get some birth control.





btw, im13teengirl, you are 13, YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE A BABY. having a baby that young will limit your chance at a future, create medical complications for both you and a baby, and ultimately screw up your life. If you're thinking about kids at THAT AGE, you need mental help. It's not healthy. You are not mentally ready for a child, in fact as a teenager your decision making skills aren't developed, and you probably won't be with your boyfriend by the end of the month.
And judging by the way you talk, you're not exactly the most mature person. I apologize if this seems harsh, but that's what's needed to snap you out of this completely foolish idea.
I'm in a parenting class, and I've seen cases like this, nothing ends well for pregancy's that young, and you would probably SERISOUSLY HARM a child's mental state if you were to have one.

Pulling out does NOT stop you from becoming pregnant. There is sperm in pre cum, which could ultimately still get you pregnant. The only way to make sure your not going to get pregnant at all is by refraining from having sex. If you are going to choose to keep having sex with your boyfriend then i'd advise you get on some form of birth control immediately and that should alleviate some of the stress your having.
