Question
On November 2nd, I went over someones house and they had sex with me. I'm 18 years old and my period has always been irregular. I was a virgin until then. On the 21st my period came and went on the same day. I haven't seen a sign of it since. I'm not sure if protection was used. I've never taken birth control or been to a gynecologist. I occasionally get violent lower stomach pains.

Answer
Hello Lexi, I'm really sorry to hear what happened to you. Did you want to have sex? So are you afraid that you might be pregnant? I would encourage you to go to a local pregnancy resource center and get a free pregnancy test. You can find a center at http://www.heartbeatservices.org and click on the worldwide directory or http://www.optionline.org
So let me know what happens. You can email me privately at Carieichel@aol.com so we can talk more.
I am concerned about the way you worded what happened so hope to hear from you soon.
