I'm sad to say that i'm only 15, and i think i may be pregnant. but please...dont judge me....its not my fault. i was raped & i need to know the pregnancy signs....i havent missed a period yet but i'm scared...
Oh no, sweetie, I'm so sorry you went through that awful experience. Did you report it to anyone??? I hope you did, because it's a crime, no matter what age the guy is. Unfortunately, early signs of pregnancy can often mimic PMS, so you probably won't know for sure (in most cases) until your period is on time or late. I think you should seek counseling (whether at a church, Planned Parenthood, or even a school counselor..... Planned Parenthood would be anonymous I think) to at first talk about and deal with all the feelings you have about what happened to you. Your mental and physical health are the first priority. I really truly hope you aren't pregnant, but if you are, there are opportunities out there to help you with any decisions you make (like the resources I mentioned previously, through whom you can hopefully get info and a referral).
Of course, I'm not a medical professional and these are just my opinions. I've never been raped so I can't begin to imagine what you are going through. Is there an adult who you can confide in? Anywhere or anyone that you can just talk to outside or within your family who wouldn't judge you? I wish I could offer you more than just suggestions without experience. All I can offer you is a safe place (thanks to APA!) where you can keep asking questions to women who care. and I hope you get an answer very soon.
