Get to a dr. If ur worried about ur parents finding out right now, just remember the dr can NOT tell ur parents without ur consent, but u do need to see a dr ASAP

Go to the health department or free clinic, those don't make up pay, or find out what insurance u have & go to a dr that's covered. Take a bus, bum a ride, walk?. Otherwise, sit down & tell ur parents, if ur too scared to tell them face to face, take the time to write a letter, (mail it if u dont wanna hand it to them.)

if you don't have a car obviously you have to take the bus or find a closr friend who has their drivers license that can help till you feel comfortable to tell your parents. (if you were my daughter i'd be mad but for yours and the babies safety i'd want you to tell me.) go to the DHHR (welfare office) to see about a medical card. you may need a parent w/ you sinceyou're under 18, but try w/out them. also your community should have a WIC (woman and infant care center) they will provide you w/ vouchers for free food and you can stay on this program till your child is 5yrs old. WIC will also provide you w/ info. on place in your community that can help you w/ any counsling if you need someone to talk to or have worries about what to expect during your pregnacy. you HEALTH DEPT. in your community can also. good luck to you!! :}

Well, I'd probably go to the doctor, and tell your parents.  GL!

Before you go to your parents, you need to determine what you want to do.

 

 

Do you want to keep it?

 

 

Do you want to have it and place it up for adoption?

 

 

Do you want to abort it?

 

 

What does the boy have to say about it?

 

 

These are all things you need to think about since you decided to have sex at a young age.  Welcome to the adult world of decision making.

I would talk to your parents first. Your parents can help you make informed decisions about your life from here on out. If you haven't already told the father of your baby you need to. You need to know where he stands with this issue.

I was 17. When I got pregnant. I waited a few weeks to tell mom. During those few weeks I decided what I was going to do. How I was going to do it. Good luck.
