Help! I have tried posting my question a couple times but not luck with a response..I am 17 and my boyfriend is 20. We had s_x about 2 weeks before my period was due. A few days later I started feeling sick (like I had a cold or the flu), sick at my stomach some, headaches, my nipples have been itchin' (dont know if that is actually a sign or not), slightly constipated & very tired and hungry ALL the time! Then about a week later I had my period & got off of it about 4 days ago. I thought that it meant I wasnt pregnant but the symptoms are STILL here. In fact, it feels like they are getting worse. I read that you could be pregnant and still have what seems to be a normal period & It's kinda scary to me because the only protection we used was the withdrawal method & I know that "prec_m" can get me pregnant. What are my chances of being pregnant & when should I take a test?!

Kellyann- Do you really think that I could be pregnant?! I know that I am only 17 but the thought of havin' a life inside of me..Well it kinda makes me happy-Is that bad?! & do you think its too soon to take a test?!

Face it you're not, you are just sick. You must WANT to be if you think you are that badly. You DO NOT get symptoms 2 wks after conception.

Ovulation is about 2 weeks before your period is due, and conception (sperm enters egg) is within 24 hours of ovulation. Implantation is commonly quoted as 7 to 10 days after conception, but in fact many women report early signs before that (and some, as in Hilary's case, report none). There is a pretty good chance you are pregnant. Since you are a week past your expected period, it is OK to start testing now. Buy the cheap tests ($4) from the Dollar store (you may have to ask the cashier), First pee in the morning works best. Buy prenatal vitamins at the same time and start taking them as a precaution.Test at one week intervals until you get a positive or your next period, then set up a clinic appointment. Good luck! I'm glad you are prepared to welcome this change in your life. Please remember to come back to this thread and tell us the outcome.

wait and see if you have your period next month. until then, take care of yourself as if you are pregnant.

look, chances are ur symptoms are not due to pregnancy its really early.... withdrawl is not a good method of birth control, theres a 17 precent chance of getting pregnant.. see a doctor and get a blood test done as soon as u can

im 16 and found out im pregnant 2 days ago i havent had my period but that doest mean anything. u can get you period threw the whole pregnancy. im feeling the same things u r. you should buy a test or go to a free clinic or your gyn soon.

I found out i was pregnant at 4 weeks, so you can tell pretty early and i started getting signs very early, now i am five months pregnant and happier then ever, i am also 17 years old.

well i would say it is time to take a pregnancy test. if you never had those syptoms before then that is a big sign. check with a doctor near you and tell them about those signs and dont be scared bevause i am 17 too! everyone just found out a week ago and now everything is ok. so dont freak out that much! and please if you are pregnant, dont get an abortion. please.

Maybe your not pregnant, COULD BE AN STD! obviously no protection is being used!! GET CHECKED!

it sounds like you are pregnant. you should wait until your next period and see what happen. I am going through the same thing but my period has been a week late for 2 months. Try going to plan parenthood to take a test. it might cost about $10. Good Luck!!!!
