Question
I've had irregular periods off and on, then one time it didn't come on for 3 months. When it did it was really heavy and lasted for 2 weeks or so. It ended on Oct. 8 and I had sex for the first time on Oct.20. We were protected but the condom had broke. So its been a little over a month since we had sex. And I didn't have my period in November. So I'm really worried that I might be pregnant even though I'm known for be irregular. I haven't showed any symptoms except the miss period, but again I'm not sure to be worried or not because I've missed them quite a lot. Should I be worried? Could I be pregnant?  And is it even possible for me to become pregnant?  (I know you don't exactly know the answer for that but I want to know what you think, thankyou!!. I just turned 15 so I'm really worried. I didn't ever think id do any of the stuff I did, so this really sucks. My birthday was Oct.14. Soo...this sucks for me, I'm just really scared! I'll be very grateful for your response!!)

Answer
Hi Brittany, Thanks for your question. I would recommend that you not have sex any more. If you are not pregnant, then you won't have to worry about this every time you have sex. Ok, so contact a pregnancy resource center and see where and when you can go get a FREE pregnancy test.
To find one in your area, go to http://www.optionline.org
So let me know what happens. You can email me at Carieichel@aol.com so we can talk more privately. But don't stress too much, because you can stop your period just by being stressed. Write soon and let me know what you think.
