I'm not a teen, but decided to post in the teen forum because it seems most of the posts in the pregnancy forum are planned- and this is not! I wish I could be posting about a child I planned to have, but it's just not feasable at this point. I'm a 25 yr old college student, I make $7.50 an hr, and even though I work full time that is barley enough money to get me by.
I have been with my boyfriend since I was 19. For the first year of our relationship I was on birth control (first depo shot- but had to stop because I was spotting all the time, then the pill). I had to get off the pill because I have no health insurance & the family planning agencies around here shut down (they ran strictley on donations or would base your income on the cost). Closest one is an hr away now, maybe more.
Me & the bf have been VERY careful. Always, always use condoms for the last 5 years. Never had any problems until yesturday morning. He slipped his grip when he went to pull out, then had to stick his hand in to find the condom. Not to be graphic, but there was a large semen spot on the sheet, and it had also gotten around his privates. Immediately I ran to the bathroom and washed "my area"- but who am I kidding, what good will that do?!
I would haven driven the 1+ or however many hrs to one of the few remaining planned parenthood clinics myself this morning and gotten the plan B pill, but my job doesn't alow it, I would have been fired. So now I'm left stressing at work about this, and I'm scared.
The worst part is, my period ended around July 22nd...so I basically have to stress for a month about this until I can take a pregnancy test & find out if I really do have anything to worry about.
I wish I could know "right now", even if just to prepare myself. But I have no idea, and haveing no control of what is to come scares the crap out of me.
Sorry for the long vent, I just don't know what to do.
