i am a 16 year old girl who is using the pill about a month ago i became ill and needed to use antibiotics not relizing that extra protection is needed during sex i presumed with my sex life unprotected after about 2 weeks i did start to feel sick often and eat more than usual but didnt take being pregnant into an option. yesterday towards the evening i began getting really strong abdominal pains and cramps in my stomach which felt like period pain but a lot worse i havnt been able to eat because of it and it has carried on and i am still experiencing it now after about 16 hours although i have not experienced any bleeding could i be going through a misscarriage and what should i do? i am to scared to consult a doctor

  • I'd suggest talking to your parents and getting to the doctor to get checked out. If they have you on the pill, I'm sure they have an idea that you're sexually active.

Try and get to planed parent hood or some other free clinic if you can't afford it. If you are covered by your parents insurance just go to the Dr. you are protected by HIPAA you medical infomation can not be shared with your parents unless you want it to be.

  • ok sweetheart i realise you are scared....i have been there when i was 16 again when i was 18 and three more times since...and before anyone shouts about the contraception i have been with the same person since i was 14 and i am now 30!!!!!anyway,what you are describing sounds like a miscarriage.did you lose clots of blood?that is a sure sign.but listen this is serious,you must see your doctor and tell him as you may need an operation called a dilate and scrape(or d and c)this is in case you have any matter left inside you,im not trying to scare you i promise,but if there is anything left inside you you could get an infection which could lead to you not being able to have babies in the future.they may not need to do a d and c.what will happen is the doctor will arrange for an ultra sound scan to look inside your abdoman if that all looks good you wont need the d and c.like i say im not trying to scare you but you need to go.as for your mom,you can try and talk to her and if that isnt an option ask a friend to go with you.take care and god bless xxx
