15 And Scared

renee - February 23

I'm only 15, and 5 weeks (possibly) pregnant. I'm 18 days late for my period, and yes i know i need to take a pregnancy test, but there is no way for me to purchase one without my mom knowing.I would consider abortion, but i'm afraid i would regret it later. I can't tell my parents about this, I would be disowned, I can't drive myself to a clinic. I don't know what to do. My b.f. would support me in any choice i decide to make, I know that for a fact. But I'm scared and i don't know what to do. Does anyone have a suggestion? I would appreciate it.

Your guidance counselor at school has pregnancy tests and is experienced in handling this situation. Alternatively, start thinking relatives, friends at school with sympathetic moms or older sisters. You are just doing a denial thing when you say you can't get your hands on a test. If you don't have any early signs of pregnancy, you more likely have skipped a cycle.

Does your mother follow your every move? Go to a pharmacy and buy a test, and do the test in a public washroom. You'll have some hard choices to make but I'm sure your parents won't "disown" you. They'll yell and be disappointed but try to explain to them that you understand their anger but you need their support for this. You can also talk to your school nurse or counsellor about what to do. Best of luck.

Thanks for the suggestions. I didn't know i could go to my school counselor. That helps alot! btw, yes my mom does follow my every move, thats why I'm seeing this as such a difficult problem. But thank you!

why dont u tell ur mother you are going to a freinds house and do it there? and if she followed ur every move how do u think u got preg? cause u excaped her and did it and not u trying to find out so do the same thing u did wen u had s_x just make it less obvious im sure there is a way to get out!? unless theres something else?

Well you can't start considering abortions until you know for definite if you are pregnant. Take a trip to your local doc's and get a free test, or pop into town and buy one (a decent one costs between £7 and £10). If you REALLY can't get a test yourself, maybe a friend or older sibling could help you out. When you find out for sure if you are/are not pregnant, you can start the decision making. You don't need to tell your parents, or be able to drive, anything you tell a doctor is confidential and as long as you tell trusted friends there's no way your mom or dad will find out. As for the transport problem, your local doctor's surgery or family planning clinic should be a short walk, if not a simple bus journey away. Go to www.fpa.org.uk or call the Family Planning a__sociation on: 0845-310 1334 for free advice or go to www.ruthinking.co.uk or call S_xwise on 0800-28 29 30. Brook are also available on 0800-018 5023. Information on going to a Brook clinic can be received by phoning; 020-7285 5512. And IF you find you are pregnant and are still CONSIDERING abortion a Brook Abortion Information Line you can call is: 020-7285 5513. The websites above should provide information and maps of where to find your local clinics are if you are unsure. I got these numbers from a magazine and they are all genuine. Give them a call. Call from a public payphone if you can't call from home. And despite what you've said, I'm SURE your parents wouldn't "disown" you. It may seem strange, but they were our age once and will understand more than you think. Confiding in them may mean they are a little angry at first, but in the end they'll respect you for being honest and mature and at the end of they day, they will always love you. Play safe in future, and good luck!
