Could I be Pregnant?!/Could I be pregnant?

Question
I had sex on the fourth of June with my boyfriend. He didn't cum but he precame and touched it then fingered me. I had spotted but it was just light and it was a day before my period. My period was a day longer than usual but it was about a week late. I've had these symptoms: Higher body temperature, sore nipples, funny feeling, cramps like I had to poop, headaches, hiccups, I haven't been eating as much, dizziness, and sweet cravings. (The last two could be low blood sugar but I just want to be sure). I'm actually really young and I'm scared of what my parents will say if I'm still alive after they find out.

Answer
Hi Cameron, Thanks for your question.  Some of your symptoms do sound like they could be pregnancy symptoms. How old are you? If you are pregnant, most parents get used to the idea after they have been able to contemplate the situation. But don't get worried yet, because you might not even be pregnant. You should go to a pregnancy resource center and get a FREE test there. To find a center near you, go to http://www.optionline.org or http://www.heartbeatservices.org and click on the worldwide directory. Please email me at Carieichel@aol.com and hope to hear from you soon.
