Hello, I'm 15 years old and I think I might be pregnant. Someone please respond to this. I am on the birth control implant Nexplanon, but I had unprotected sex. Recently, I started having lower abdominal pain, I threw up, I got light-headed, and I had a tremendous heat wave. My friend, who was there with me, revealed to me that Cory (my fling) had told her that we had had sex and he did not wear a condom or pull out. I called one of my friend's mother, whom I'm close to, and she advised me to take a pregnancy test right away. I went to CVS and got two tests. I took the two tests, one of them was negative and one of them was positive. I'm really scared and I don't know what to do. Please, someone help me.

Linni, I'm very happy that you told your mom and that y'all are going to figure this out together. I got pregnant at 15 and kept the baby. He's now 21 (22 in Dec.) You're not alone. You are about to face some very serious choices and there is no turning back whichever choice you make. Find a great support system. I'm always here too. Blessings and prayers and comfort and peace.

THANK YOU ALL! I told my mother and I have a scheduled appointment tomorrow at 9am at our local health department. Also, no I don't have a period... I'm on an implanted birth control, but I know women that have gotten pregnant even with the implants.

As hard as it is you need to talk to your parents. Honesty earns more respect and easier forgiveness than lying and causing hurt by hiding the truth and something bad happening. I've had it all with pregnancy pains wise. Sometimes its just a cramp for no reason. There are rare false positives. Because you are not far along its probably showing both because the hormones are out of wack. Tell your parents so you can get tested early for anything they might be able to fix. Wait and you may get permanent damage for life. It can be scary but that's what family is for. My parents were scary to approach growing up but when it came down to it they really helped. I know you probably don't want to be in trouble for sleeping around but this is a blessing in disguise. You can learn to respect yourself more as a person by realizes what one moment with a guy can do long term. Wait for the one who respects you enough to be with you even if you don't want to have sex. He is the one worth giving yourself to if he can wait months and never bug you.

Do you have some sort of Planned Parenthood in your area? I'm with Naomi, I would go up to the dollar store in your area and purchase a cheap test, depending on the result you will know where to go from there. I find it hard to believe but I guess not impossible about your implant, how long ago did you get it? Perhaps even just telling your mother that you want to see a doctor your having some personal issues, and then you can speak in confidence with doctor.
The positive test says it all. I am going to suggest to get test from the 99 cents store. Just so you don't spend a lot more money on it. Usually the throwing up and most of the symptoms do not show up until you are 6 weeks. Have you missed your period?
False negatives are fairly common early on. False positives are very rare, so if one of your tests came back positive, you are probably pregnant.
If you have a regular OBGYN already, call them and have a blood test done. If it is positive, they will begin your prenatal treatment and advise you on your options should you choose not to keep the child.
If you do not have an OBGYN yet, call your regular doctor and have the test done. If it is positive, they will give you a referral to an OB to begin prenatal care.
You can also go to a free clinic if funds are tight, but most are understaffed so infection rates are high and wait times can be long.
