Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

17 yr old nervous wreck.

1 answers
I had sex on August 12. We used a condom and he didn't even come close to finishing. I usually have my period around the 19th and I still haven't gotten it.. I am 17 years old with a family that taught me to not be a teen mom and now I feel like I am. I can't tell my family because I don't know if I actually am. Please help me... I also don't work so I don't have money for a pregnancy test.. I'm so scared. :(

the only way to know for sure whether or not you are pregnant is to take a pregnancy test. If you legitimately cannot afford $10 for a test you can go to Planned Parenthood and you can have them test you. But, if you used a condom and it didn't break and your boyfriend didn't ejaculate, there's almost no chance that you are pregnant.
