How can i tell if i'm pregnant? what are some early signs of pregnancy? (sorry i'm young)

Okay i'm 16 years old. I just turned 16 on May the 7th and I took birth control. I slipped up and forgot to take it a couple of time. And me and my boyfriend. .....well you know. And i'm having signs of early pregnancy (I think) and I need help. I would like someone that to talk to that is willing to let me share my symptoms with and if I can get their opinion on if they think im pregnant. Or not. Because im unsure about getting a pregnancy test. Im scared! :/ this would be my first child.

  • I have what I think is morning sickness but no vomiting. I have bad cramps and I had my period 2 weeks ago. I feel very exhausted. And I don't look forward to work as much. But, today at work I started having like this brown spotting and like a drop of blood. And my boobs aren't very sore they just really itch! And something just feels different but, I can't tell what it is yet.

  • my first sign was late period
    but you on pill, then forgetting to take it - this will screw up period, was can not tell from that at first sign

    my first sign was my boobs were much bigger (not everyone gets big boobs right away though

    can you go into a clinic for a test? home test while on pill - i do not know how that works-been too long

    call some clinics tomorrow morning and talk to a medical person
    i think you should go and get a blood test from a doctor

    good luck

  • I agree with fiatpax.....missing your pill will seriously mess with your hormones. Go to the dollar store and buy a test. They are just as accurate. This way, you have your answer and most likely, your peace of mind. Best wishes.

  • brown spotting and like a drop of blood. - could be from taking pill, then stopping, then taking - will screw your period up
    or could be pregnant
    boob itch - could be just hot weather
    but could also be pregnant
    And something just feels different -could be you worrying about
    or could be pregnant

    you have to go in - i know it is scary, but no one can say if you are or are not - you have to have a doctor exam and or test
    take a friend with you

  • I you just had your period 2 weeks ago, it's probably too early to tell. Wait till you miss your next period and get a test. You can get them for a dollar at the dollar store.

  • When was the last time you had sex? If you just had your period to weeks ago and you had sex recently, it is too early to tell.
