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.

im 14 and im terrified that i may be pregnant. i had sex for the first time about 2 weeks ago, and now i am a week late on my period. i dont know if im pregnant. i keep getting signs of my period such as back aches and facial acne breakouts but my period still wont come. i have no one in my family that i could really trust and i have no way of getting a pregnancy test or a ride to a health care place that is strictly confidential. im terrified and i dont know what to do. at the time we didnt have a condom and because of it i didnt want to continue and we stopped. he never came inside of me but i have heard of possible pre ejaculation that can get a girl pregnant. im only a freshman in highschool and i am very active in sports and i may have a future scholorship. i hate the thought of abortion as i told myself i would never do it. but since i am so young and i have so much to go through during highschool i dont know what to do. please help me. also, if im not pregnant, is it normal to miss a period or have it come up to 2 or 3 weeks late after the first time having sex? i searched up some symptoms for the first 2-3 weeks of pregnancy but i dont think i can relate to those.. im still just worried.

In pregnancy you dont have symptoms until the 4th or 5th week. If he did not ejaculate in you than you should be fine. You know your body you know if your period is regular and always on time or if it's irregular. Go to a north county health services clinic with a close friend and ask for a free pregnancy test.
No it's not true since your 15 and pregnant your considered an emancipated minor which means your considered an adult. Don't be scared no one can take your baby away from you. I'm 21 and about to have my first baby. If you decided that adoption was better only then would they take your baby. Only with your permission can they do that. Not even your mother or father can choose what happens with the baby because once again your considered an emancipated minor. Enjoy your pregnancy! Stress is not good for the baby
