questions about pregnancy please help?

My and my boyfriend have had unprotected sex multipul times and use the pull out method. i've not once gotten pregnant. My period is due in a couple days and im worried i Might be pregnant. I dont really get headaches or nausea after i eat. I've been eating more and my boobs hurt for a couple days, I know, as others have said, I should actually wait for my period to start but i just need some answers. I am bloated a bit and it hasnt really gone down for a couple days. I dont know if thats just because i've been eating more or because im about to start my period. I just want some answers, advice and some reasurance.

well the pull out method is not a safe way to prevent pregnancy as there can be sperm in the pre-*** so there is a slight chance of getting pregnant. The best thing I can say is wait until your period is late and then do a hpt. They do sound like some early sighns but then sore boobs, being bloated tec is also signs of a due period

The "pull-out method" does not protect you against pregnancy, as there is something called pre-ejaculation(the wetness a guy has when he has an erection) which is always present and does contain sperm in it. Symptoms really don't mean anything, as they are completely unreliable. The symptoms for pregnancy are also the same for PMS, stress, illness, hormonal fluctuations, and so on. You'll either have to wait until your period comes or at least 2 weeks from the time you had sex in order to take a home pregnancy test. Take the test with first morning urine and make sure to read the directions carefully, taking the test as it says. Are you trying to get pregnant?

If you're not trying to get pregnant, why are you having unprotected sex? You're 15 years old, there's no excuses why you're aren't protecting yourself. As the others said, you have no choice but to wait until your period is due. If it's late (or different than usual) take a pregnancy test with first morning urine.

Unfortunately using the pull-out method does put you at risk for pregnancy. I would wait until your period either arrives or is late, take a test if it's late, and if it comes get on birth control immediately. It might be hard to talk to your mom about getting on birth control, but much better to do that than have a baby in high school!

good luck

I dont believe she trying to get pregnant, having sex period is kinda what today teens are about. YES WE DO HAVE A BRAIN IN OR HEAD, but trust me its harder to say no if u think  a guy is cute, or it makes u popular or its just something ppl are doing. as far as  not using one, You really do, and its not good having sex at ur age. I am 18 so i understand but this person ur with now ur more likly not going to be with later on in life. only cuz u change. But i dont think you are.. the only signs seem of your period. plus every body is different

Hey hunny, this symptoms can be caused by ovulation which occurs 14 days after your last period. Another reason that these symptoms can be is when a woman stress deep in the worry of getting pregnant when you don't wish to be. All symptoms actually happen because you send them feelings to your brain. I wouldn't be too worry about it till your period is due and it doesn't shows up. Another thing, you DON'T NEED YOUR MOTHER'S PERMISSION to get birth control at Health Departments. Thousands of Health Departments do help under age girls to get on the pill due to the fact that a lot of young girls have sex. Which is pretty normal these days but if you don't want a baby just yet, I would suggest you do a research on your local public health department to set up an appt because they don't charge you if you don't work. I hope everything works out for the best. Many blessings.

If you are not trying to get pregnant, you really need to be using some form of birth control. If your mom won't help you with that, then take it into your own hands and step up to the plate to protect yourself against pregnancy. You can go to planned parenthood, the county health department, or other clinics and get low cost birth control on your own. If he is allergic to latex condoms, then try the lamb skin condoms or other types of condoms, which can protect you against pregnancy. Honestly, you have no reason or excuse as to not using birth control. Do you really want to be a teen mom? Because if you continue to do as you are now, you will end up pregnant. I hope you would think about your future and not be so careless when it comes to sex. A baby is a major life change and most all things associated with teen pregnancy are negative(most fathers don't stick around, many teen moms don't finish high school and most certainly many dont go to college, and so on). Try not to stress yourself out about this month, as stress can cause your period to be late and just wait for it to come. If it's late take a home pregnancy test. Then, if the test is negative, use this as a big learning lesson to take control of your future and start using some form of birth control. Hope it all goes well for you. Take care.

Yea you can get birthcontrol, some parents feel if they give birthcontrol then basiclly they are saying its ok to have sex... the main reason why is whe you turn 16 there is a HIPA law. So thats when you kinda can pick and chose what you can do for your body and only you

I've already tried to do that and the health department near me will only do appointments in the morning and i cannot get out of school without my parent coming and signing me out so there is absolutly no way to get birthcontrol unless my mom knew about it so basicly im screwed in that general area.
