Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If the symptoms of having pregnancy and your baby have been persistent then consider visiting your doctor/healthcare provider for thorough examination and evaluation and get started on treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and evaluation results) to control the symptoms if needed as you are quite young and teen-pregnancy has its own complications. Counseling sessions should help. Talk with your parents and get their moral support in coping up with your symptoms. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/healthcare provider and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.

The doctor answered assuming you are pregnant already. Maybe you are just wanting to know if it would be safe to become pregnant.

Younger teens have "high risk" pregnancies, but the outcome is usually good with proper medical supervision. In my opinion childbearing should wait for a two parent family to be formed, with independent living, good education and jobs. Anything less is not fair to the baby which will grow up lacking what is necessary for a fair start in life.
