It can be really scary thinking that we might be pregnant especially when you’re so young, but whatever happens you can get through this and having the right support around you can make a huge difference.
You might be worrying about nothing and so the first thing to do is to find out for sure if you are pregnant or not.
There are two ways to find out; you can make an appointment with your local doctor/GP and he or she can do a test or you can buy a home pregnancy test and do the test yourself.
Pregnancy tests can be positive from 9 days after conceiving, so if it’s been 9 days or more since you had sex, you can do a pregnancy test now. If not, you should wait until it’s been 9 days and then take the test.
Having sex under the age of 17 for both boys and girls is illegal in Ireland and so as you are only 15, your doctor might need to discuss this with your parents. We don’t want to stress you out anymore, we’re just trying to let you know what might happen.
If you are pregnant there are lots of people you can talk to who can support you. You won’t be on your own. Websites like positiveoptions.ie have lots of useful information.
We hope you have a friend or family member that you can talk to about this as during times like this there can be so many thoughts racing around in our head and it can be hard to think clearly. Friends and family can help to support us through these times.
When we’re young our periods can sometimes be quite irregular and stress can delay them even further, so we know it’s difficult Lauren, but try not to stress too much.
We understand how scary this situation can be, but whatever happens, there are always people who can support you and be there for you so that you won’t go through this alone.
We hope this helps Lauren and if you need any further information, let us know.
I dont know if i am pregnant or not im only 15 and i dont know what to do
The time it takes to fall pregnant is different for everyone as there are so many different factors that could influence it.
If you are looking for more information I would recommend checking out rollercoaster.ie which has information on fertility, an ask the expert functionality and a space where you can chat to other women trying to conceive.
If you think you may be pregnant you can take a pregnancy test to find out for sure. It’s important to remember that you need to wait two weeks after missing your period for the results to be accurate.
I hope this helps
All the best
