I think I'm pregnant and I need your opinion...

I am 16 years old and I think I might be pregnant. My last period was right after Valentine's Day. I've had sex one time since then on March 7. I'm on the patch. I took my patch off a few days after valentine's day and didn't put it on again for about two weeks, I'm only supposed to have it off for one week for my period. If I would have followed how I'm supposed to use my patch I would have taken it off on Monday. But if I would have followed the "on for three weeks, off for one week" cycle despite putting it on late I would take it off on the 25th of this month. I've been uber moody, dizzy, and tired lately and I friend of mine believe I might be pregnant. I'm really nervous. I took my patch off Monday night because I figured I should and hopefully I'll be getting my period soon. Do you think my period will happen in the next few days or not until next Thursday? Help!

  • If you don't have the money for a pregnancy test, then you can look in the yellow pages for a Planned Parenthood to get a free test. When I was your age - I went to a Catholic Charities center called "Crises Pregnancy Center" for a free test.....TAKE A TEST!! Put your mind at ease!! And let this be a reminder to continue to be CAREFUL!!!

  • Yup, take a test. It's the only way to find out.

  • Well I really think you should take a test or see a doctor. I am 23 and I am having some of the symtons you're having. I went to my doctor's yesterday and I got a faint line on my pregnancy test . So in other words I think you should be sure and check because it only takes one time one sperm to make a baby. Good luck

  • UPDATE: I took a test yesterday afternoon and it was negative. I haven't officially missed my period yet, so I think it's too early to tell if I am by a HPT. I'm gonna test again this weekend, and if I still don't get my period I'll find a way to face my dad and get him to take me to the doctor.

  • The patch did those things to me when I was not pregnant... They made me very dizzy, tired, and they screwed up my period horriblely.
