Daughter denying she's pregnant. What can I do short of picking her up and dragging her to the docs??

My daughter's 15. She told me she was a virgin.

Recently her bellys grown a lot. She's been throwing up every morning. Her boobs have grown. So i asked her could you be pregnant? She said no and walked off on me. I asked her if she'd go to the doctor about her throwing up. She said no, it was nothing to worry about. I asked her would she use a test to put my mind at rest? She said no.

I'm at my wit's end. I'm close to stealing her pee to check! I'm not even kidding. Her dad seems unconcerned (doesn't live with us), he says she's probably just grown a bit but the not taking a test or going to the doc about sickness is what made me seriously wonder.

I got a friend who was a doctor to come round and my daughter shut herself in her room and refused to come out. I'm concerned for the health of her (and any baby she may or may not be carrying). I may sound like I'm panicking over nothing but I know my daughter and I honestly 100% think she's pregnant.

Can I force her to the docs?? What can I do?? If she didn't show fora few months I'm worried she could be quite far along. I'm getting scared. Her friends havve come to me concerned also.

  • I would say lets go somewhere ,make up a place, and then drag her to a doctor or a counselor so they can inform her if she is indeed pregnant she really needs health care not only for her but the baby

  • She is a minor you can take her to the ER anytime you want to and have them draw blood. Tell them you think she is either very sick because she is vomitting all the time or pregnant.

  • She's not 18, you are still the parent. You can force her to the dr and take a test. And you should for both of their health..i would rather make sure she is ok, and she may hate me for a while, rather than leaving her alone and she ends up wi a sick baby because of her lack of prenatal care.

  • I think you need to explain to her that if she is hiding a pregnancy that she is only doing harm to her baby by not being taken care of and getting the support that she needs. And you need to tell her that if she isn't pregnant- that all of the throwing up she is doing is doing harm to herself.

    She is under18. You are her parent. tie her up and take her if you have to.
