16 and Scared - PMS or Pregnancy Signs. Someone help me?
 
I am 16 and having symptoms that are kind of like PMS but, my boyfriend and I have unprotected sex on the 8th and 11th of April. I am having: Nausea, lower back pain, cramping, gas, and bloating. Could someone give their opinion if this sounds like pregnancy?

I am on bc but, I had a UTI during the week we had sex and the antibiotics I had to take could have messed up my pills.

Please and thank you
Ally

Hi Ally,

I am sure all of this is very scary for you. ((Hugs)) Have you taken a home pregnancy test yet?

Yes but, I think I took one too early.
I am trying as hard as I can to get another one. (Being 16 I have no car right now, so my friend has to take me) But, with 45 horses at home, school and everything getting in the way I haven't gotten one yet.

I will be asap though

Hey!

Hun, when i first got pregnant i was 16 also and it was unplanned. Its natural to be scared, but when you actually are then you must discuss and take alot of time to think about what to do next so you wouldnt make decisions that could make you feel bad for a long time. Either way / abortion or keeping the baby, it will change your life. Just think about the pros and cons and think what would make you more happy.
Well thats when you Are pregnant, but to be honest then i doubt it. PMS and PR signs are about all the same. Dont bad thoughts now. Start thinking about your future when the doctor and the test says that you are pregnant first. If you are not then maybe next time try not to have unprotected sex to avoid that stress you are experiencing right now. Dont worry both ways you are welcome here and we support you:)

Hey, First off i want to say if i said anything rude in aip broad i am sorry, no one want's to see a 16 yr old pregnant, and it's a lot on your plate if you are.. You are going to have to either say something to your parents (witch i know is really hard to do cause your probly scared of what they will say) but like i said before tell your mother not your father, or get a test. Cause if you are you need to be seen by a doctor..

She said she was on birth control - but took antibiotics.
(((hugs)))) Really for now all you can do is wait. Take another test once you are sure your period is late - and then deal with it if you are pregnant. You will be ok no matter what. Your mom will still love you!

Her story from the AIP board isn't that she took antibiotics.

http://www.justmommies.com/forums/f2...e-help-me.html

It is that she missed 2 days of pills because of showing (I'm guessing she means showing horses and didn't bring her pills).

I don't think she liked the advice she got on AIP which is why she is changing her story and posting here.

Girl, no one can tell you if you are pregnant. You need to take a test. You are getting to school, go to the school nurse and get a test if you have no friends who can drive you. I'm guessing the guy you are sleeping with has a car if he's able to get to you to have sex, so have him bring you to get a test.

She isn't changeing her story.... she did say she was on them. page 2. she said

No, didn't end up getting a test. I came home early - kept throwing up in 1st, 2nd and third hour. It was horrible. So I just went home.

Yes, I had a UTI. I took the antibiotics and they did tell me that. Which is part of the reason I am so scared!

Your school nurse will be able to help you get a test. It's confidential, s/he cannot tell your parents.

Get a test!

This was her first post on that thread:

Then I got a very heavy bleeding like a period but, it was in the middle of the month and since I am on BC, it is always at the very last week of the month - but I also missed 2 days due to showing.
Which says she missed 2 pills due to showing- I didn't see the part later where she added that she also took abx in addition to skipping a few days of pills.

If you missed two pills it can make your period come early. Which could be the bleeding you described in your other post. Last year I messed up and forgot my pills when going out of town which resulted in me not taking the last two active pills in my pack. As a result, my period came two days earlier. If you want my honest opinion, I don't think you're pregnant. But what do I know? I do think you should use condoms as a back-up.

I hope she gets a test...I am thinking school is our for summer now huh?
I agree with poster above, if bf has a way to get to her to have sex with her, he should be able to bring her a test?

I dont mean to sound harsh here but someone that sounds this ill informed about such things as this, has NO business having sex with or without BC. Honey you need to get educated on what happens when sperm and egg meet and see how much it will change your parents life because it doesnt seem that you are responsible or educated enough to raise a baby. It is obvious that your parents would be the ones raising it.

Why in the world would you have unprotected sex anyway? If your BF cant bring you a pregnancy test, he probably also cant get to the dr for STD testing and you have NO idea what he could give you. Have you heard of AIDS and HIV?
I hope you get the good news that you arent pregnant and I hope going forward that you will be more responsible with your actions. If not just for the sake of the unplanned baby, for also for the sake of your health! High school boys are the worst for STD's! Dont put yourself in that position!

I think a support group should offer good advice to you and if you are in fact pregnant you can stiill get support here and we can all help you with good advice. But we can also give advice as I have above.
Good Luck with everything. And I hope to see you post about whatever happens.

I don't know if you realize this either, but your symptoms could also be STD related.
You need to forget the home pregnancy test and have your mom take you to a dr for a full STD panel and pregnancy test. You should also get a more effective form of birth control.

I read the other post that was linked above. You have researched all this info and you "unplanned pregnancy"? I doubt that. It sounds to me like you are a "planning" a pregnancy and cant wait to know if it worked?

You could definitely have an STD. You need to get that checked out asap and stop having unprotected sex. You should probably stop having sex at all because you are not educated or mature enough to handle the outcome of a baby.
Please...

RELAX. Stressing will NOT help. Your body will respond to the stress.
Wait until you can take a pregnancy test and find a clear result.
Take it one step at a time.
Use protection next time.

I may get yelled at for this but, why are there so many people attacking her? If she really is on birth control, at least she's protecting herself. We were all 16 at one time, right? and I'm sure some (not all) had sex at 16. I also don't know why people are saying he GOT her to have sex with him. I'm sure it was willingly on her part. I don't think she's lying or changing her story. I think she's being honest and really thinks she could be pregnant. It's true her symptoms could be STD-related though. They ALSO could be UTI-related as well.

To the OP, anytime you have sex, whether it's protected by the use of condoms or birth control, you run the risk of pregnancy. That goes without saying and I'm pretty sure you know that. What you have to do is see a doctor to get tested for everything. In case you ARE pregnant you're going to get tested anyway. I understand you're afraid but it's the only way to know for sure.

To everyone else, I'm not trying to fight or anything like that but I just fail to understand why people attacked her. I'm not condoning her behavior, a 16 y.o having sex but then again, a lot of us probably had sex around that age as well. She's young and she's scared. She needs some kind of support.
