I found out I was pregnant about a week and a half ago.

I had taken the morning after pill, and seeing as it can usually make periods slightly earlier or later, I wasn't particularly concerned that my period was slightly overdue. During this month too, I had fractured my foot and was in a cast for three weeks, which preoccupied me and led me to not monitor my periods properly; something that I am definitely going to make sure that I take care of in the future. I made an emergency appointment at the doctor's immediately. She was lovely and not at a

15 and pregnant.

When I found I out I was pregnant, I just collapsed inside, knowing that I messed up thinking what am I going to do? It turned out that when I actually knew that I was pregnant, because I stupidly didn't take a pregnancy test because it just came to me, missing my periods, fatigue and that one night, I went 17 weeks without really knowing that I was pregnant, until the day I felt it move. I wasn't thinking straight, or anything at the time just that I made a mistake with someone who didn't care

Unprotected sex and a missed period.

I recently lost my virginity and I have not gotten my period for awhile and I have really bad stomach pains now. I don't know what I should do. I told my friends and they told me to take a pregnancy test but I'm scared to see the results.

I got pregnant at 17, and my husband left me 1 month after the baby was born

I had very supportive parents that helped me raise my son. I married again at 23, we had 3 children together, the marriage was a nightmare ! My husband was incredibly possessive, and became physically abusive. Regardless of using all kinds of protection I had 3 children, but lived with the fear of being alone, he made me feel worthless, I had no confidence left at all. I took the brave step of leaving after 15 years when the abuse was witnessed by my kids, that was the last straw.

I truly fell in love with motherhood

This is by far the most personal thing I've ever posted on the internet. Normally, I'm more of the opinion that the internet is not a diary, so this feels pretty strange. I'm posting this for two main reasons... One is that I feel like sharing our story could be very therapeutic. I've grown so tired of feeling like I have to keep this whole experience that has changed my world in so many ways a secret. The other reason I felt led to share our story is that I am hoping that others who may be in s

I'm 15 and I fear I may be pregnant.

I'm afraid though, we began having sex a little over a month ago and have used protection (Trojan lubricated ribbed condoms) if you were wondering and despite this my period is 5 days late. I may just be acting foolish and worrying over nothing but I'm losing sleep and have started to get back into my less desirable habits such as cutting.
