  • Well I was 17 when I conceived my daughter, and my DH was 23 years old. The hospital never did anything, and neither did my parents. In the state that I live in you can have concentutual sex at the age of 17. I wouldn't be worried about this, I couldn't see the doctors being worried, nor his parents! Good Luck

  • most states the legal age for a male is 16 if you are worried i would look it up can find all kinds of info on your states police site and also if he is 18 now not much they can do i would say lie tell them you never did nothing till his 18th birthday lol

  • Nah, no one would bother with you being so close in age and him being so near to 18. I remember this police officer came to talk to one of my hs classes and said that statutory rape is only really pursued when there is an age difference that is more than 3+ years (15-18) or so. He says no one really cares when both are kids and the same age or one is very close to 18 and they're only a year apart.
