I'm 16 years old and I have been with my bf for almost a year. We had sex 3 times so far the first time was in late October and that's when I lost my virginity. That same night when we took the condom of there was some kind of clear gooie stuff of it. What was that? It was 5 months ago almost 6 my period was late that month. The last time we "had fun" was in early January and I'm pretty sure the condom didn't break. I get my period on time every month on time but lately I've been thinking about it and something in my mind feels like I'm pregnant. I swear my stomach has gotten a bit bigger but idk. Please help & let me know what u think thanks!

If you've been having your period every month, it's very unlikely that you are pregnant. If you miss your period, you should take a pregnancy test. Are you using any other form of birth control than condoms?

No I haven't been using birth control I don't get out much & my parents don't know I'm having sex so I can't get any.hopefully I'm just being paranoid but my stomach feels a little hard lately but maybe it can be something else? I wanna take a pregnancy test but I'm to scared of the results being positive thanks for replying(:

Not to sound harsh, but if you aren't ready to step up and be fully responsible about having sex, maybe you need to reconsider things. I understand parents can be hard to deal with, but there are other options. Have you tried talking to your school nurse? Do you drive or have friends that drive? Is there a planned parenthood in your area? Those are all options that don't involve your parents. You can also go to the doctor and discuss it with your doctor without your parents being in the room. Have you ever had a GYN exam? Now that you are sexual active, it's important that you get checked out. Being scared of seeing a positive result won't make you any less pregnant if you ever do get pregnant.
