hi, im 17 and have been doing the stupid thing, having unprotected sex, clearly i know that its wrong considerings i dont want to get pregnant, i went to the doctors and got the pill, but i ant start it until my next period which is due on the 28-30th of jan, ive been experiencing early pregnancy symptoms, but ive heard that preg symptoms are common with alot of illnesses, so im sceptical, but im having a moral dilema, what should i do if i am pregnant?, i feel guilty about those who are unable to get pregnant but want to, and id feel terrible abusing my ability to have children but not wanting to have one, i dont know if anyone can help me with this issue, but some insight or advice would be very much appreciated. dont get me wrong id be over the moon if i was, but id be scared if i had a child now that i wouldnt be able to give it the perfect upbringing, if that makes sense. please help me, i know that i dont know you guys but id really like someone to give me some guidance.

What are your symptoms? When was you last period? Generally, you will not have symptoms until AFTER your period was due if you were pregnant, so I would not worry at this point. Just use a Condom from here on out with your BCPs. You have to protect yourself from STD as well. 1 in 6 have some kind of STD. Given when you think your period is due... right now MAY be a fertile time for you, so take care and use a condom. I can't anwser if you end of pregnant... this is a personal decision.

practically speaking, you're too young to be a mom. but if you are already pregnant, please be responsible enough to continue your pregnancy.
