Attending Catholic school and pregnant!

[deleted account] ( 5 moms have responded )

I am 17 years old and I might be pregnant. My catholic high-school does not believe in pre marital sex and abortion is not an option for me. I've already told my boyfriend of 2 years, and he says he'll stick with me no matter what. My only concern is telling my mother. She was also a teen mom and had me when she was 16. I know she'll be devastated if I am pregnant. My dad is out of the picture so that's not an issue. My mom barely has enough money to keep me in school and I don't want to put any more burden on her. I'll still be allowed to go to my school because there have been several other girls who this has happened to. I'm scared that I won't be able to go to college and do everything I want to do. I know this is my own fault, my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex, but I was under the impression that I couldn't get pregnant. I'm sorry if this sounds like a sob story but some advice would be really helpful right now. Btw my period is 6 days late.

Well... if you are pregnant you are obviously not sterile, so you wouldn't be worried about possibly being pregnant if you were in FACT sterile. Though I do wonder what makes you think you are sterile unless you've had surgery to remove your fallopian tubes and uterus.... ?

I should've made this clear when I said I didn't think I could get pregnant it's because I'm sterile

Anytime you have sex... protected or not... pregnancy is a possibility. What made you think you'd be exempt from that?

The first thing you do is find out for sure if you are pregnant because there is no point in working yourself up and worrying if you are not. If you are NOT pregnant and do not want to become pregnant... stop having sex. If you ARE pregnant... tell your mom and go from there. You can still go to school, get a job, and raise a baby. It is not easy and you will need a good support system, but it IS possible.

Why did you think you couldn't get pregnant?
Have you taken a test?
Has the pregnancy been confirmed yet?
You said in your first sentence that you think you might be pregnant. Get it confirmed before working yourself up.
And for the future, ANYTIME you have unprotected sex you could fall pregnant!!!
