Could I be pregnant?
I am also under a lot of stress with excessive amounts of school work and am wondering whether this could affect my hormones. I don't keep track of my periods but it should be due now/soon-ish.
I have no one to talk to about this, primarily because I am underage and it would kill my mother if she were to find out.
Any feedback/advice would be useful. Please help!
Without even considering the "symptoms" you describe, just by the simple fact that you had unprotected sex means that you COULD be pregnant. Of course, it depends on where you were in your menstrual cycle, etc., but really, the only way to be certain is to get a pregnancy test. Are you able to go to a clinic confidentially or buy a home testing kit at the store there?
And, just as important, are you able to buy condoms there too?
