Could I be Pregnant?!/Am I pregnant?

Question
Hi there, and thanks for answering my question. I had sex with boy during 12 Dec 2013. I am a 10 year old girl which's undergoing puberty. My doctor said that I will have my first period at Grade 5 (2 years ago), though I am Grade 4 now. The time to Grade 5 has about half a year. (The doctor's estimation comes out from a whole body check-up, as I bumped by breast before and have a lump in it. She was an experience doctor to me as when I was born, she was the responsible doctor.)

I have sore breasts, and have a bigger appetite than before. But I have no other usual pregnancy symptoms like vomiting and fatigue. I am worried that I am pregnant, but I dont feel that.

I am quite confused an terribly horrified. May you tell me whether the doctor's estimation was reliable, and am I pregnant? Please reply ASAP. Thanks!

Answer
Dear Ho, please go to a pregnancy resource center to find out if you can get a free pregnancy test and advice. Go to http://www.heartbeatservices.org and click on the worldwide directory. Are you saying that this doctor has examined you when you thought you were pregnant? I was a little confused about your whole situation. Please write me at Carieichel@aol.com
Please don't have sex again. This is not good at your age, in my opinion. Write soon.
