Oh Jen, I am so so sorry. It is possible to be pg. Have you gone to your doc or Planned Parenthood to check for any STD's? If not, you should do do immediately. They can also give you a blood test and/or ultrasound to see if you are pregnant. One of my best friends was raped when she was 13 and ended up getting pregnant and had an abortion. She did not contract any STD's though, luckily. It was a very very difficult experience for her (as anyone could imagine). If you would like to get in touch with her, please e-mail me at [email protected] You are in my thoughts and prayers. I hope you have family and/or friends to lean on right now, you should never have to go through this alone.

Oh sweetie! I was also raped and I know how traumatic it can be. Were you on any form of birth control at the time? The test makers claim that a positive result should show up on the first day you miss your period, but that is not always the case. When this happened to me, I also "lost" my period for a while. I believe that stress contributed to this. My counselor told me it may have been my subconscious trying to make SOMETHING good come out of such a bad situation. I wish I could help you more. This is the number for RAINN - the National Rape Crisis Hotline - 1-800-656-4673. My advice is to wait a week and test again if you still have not started and to make an appointment with a Doctor that you trust. Good luck to you and if I can do anything more please let me know.
