ObGyn/Pregnancy issues/unknown pregnancy

Dear Shawnese,

First of all, if you did get raped, have you told the police and sought legal help?

If you have not had a period since April,then most certainly you might be pregnant. Have you taken a simple pregnancy test. They are very inexpensive and very accurate. After this, you can see an Obgyn in your area to address further care. Please also report your incident to the proper authorities if you have not already done so.

Best of luck,
