Teen Pregnancy Questions and Answers
I had sex once and the condom split, could I be pregnant?
There is a reasonable chance that you may have got pregnant, the best thing to do would be to take a pregnancy test to find out for certain.
I am under 16 and live in the UK and I am pregnant to my boyfriend who is 18+, will he be arrested?
In the United Kingdom he may be charged with statutory rape with you being under the age of 16. I cannot say whether he will be arrested or not but having sex with a minor certainly is not moral and is illegal.
I have missed my periods for three months, I have been being sick now and then too, could I be pregnant?
Most people would think there is a high chance of you being pregnant as the sickness does make you think of morning sickness immediately. The best thing to do is take a pregnancy test to make sure.
I dont want to buy a pregnancy test from the Chemist, what can I do to find out if I am pregnant or not?
Visit your doctor as soon as possible and they will do a pregnancy test there and then. If you are far enough along the doctor will be able to tell by pressing a little into your stomach. Alternatively you could order a pregnancy test online and get it delivered to your door.
Should I be ashamed for being a pregnant teen?
Not at all, many teens become pregnant every year and the majority grow up to be great parents. If you ever feel ashamed remind yourself of how your child will be proud of his mum and all she has done for him/her.
