Re: AM i pregnant?
Just reading the posts, I wanted to mention a couple of things.
The IUD is a great device, but it may not be covered by insurance and I'm not sure its given out to teenagers as readily as the BCP or Depo. I know that it cost me $500 out of my pocket. The other downfall is that my periods were harder and longer than normal. (last like a full 7-9 days and more cramping during). I hated it.
Since I'm guessing your 16, you probably haven't discussed BC with your parents. If your interested in protection, you can go to a clinic like Planned Parenthood and they can examine you and give you birth control without your parents consent or knowledge. I went when I was 15 with 2 other girlfriends and we all got on the pill together. Not exactly "girls day out" but we succeeded in getting on something. I was still a virgin at the time, but started dating a boy 2 years older than me and thought It was better to be safe then sorry.
When my mother confronted me about birth control 6 months later, I threw the pills on the counter when she was making supper. She was shocked, but glad that I took the initiative to take precautions. It shows maturity on your part.
Good Luck. -J
