When will I know.

Hi everyone I'm new to this site and I am curious. I'm 17 about to be 18 and my boyfriend (hes 18 turning 19 February 28) and I had an accident Saturday night. We had unprotected sex the 21st of February and I am expected to get my period the 9th of March. When will I know if I am pregnant or not? Is there a high percentage I will get pregnant? And how do I tell my parents? I know its alot to take in, but please don't judge. I am very responsibly, independent, and have a good head on my shoulders. I am aware that it is early to have a child, but when and if the time comes, my boyfriend and I will be ready. Thanks for your help. :]]

  • There is a good chance. Just wait till the 9th and take a test. That's really all you can do. You most likely won't have pregnancy symptoms before that.

  • You may have what's called a "ghost period" even if you are pregnant so if I were you I would take a test on the 7th of March regardless of whether or not you get your period. The longer you wait the more accurate the test wll be.
