    RE: I think I'm pregnant but I'm 13 help me

    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out to us today and it sounds like you're feeling scared and upset so it's good that you're contacting us for help. Have you talked to your boyfriend about how you are feeling? Sometimes talking to another person and voicing your worries and concerns can help you feel better or that you have someone you trust you can talk to.

    We would say that if you're feeling that you may be pregnant, it may be helpful to see a doctor soon to figure out if you are in fact pregnant. Since you are 13 and possibly won't be able to see a doctor without parental support one number we can give you is Planned Parenthood whose number is 1800-230-7526. They may be able to direct you to a Planned Parenthood near you or just talk about what's going on with you and how they can help you out. If you're feeling too scared to call on your own you can ask a trusted friend to help you call or call for you. Sometimes at schools they are also counselors that you may be able to talk to and help you out with the best plan for you.

    Again, it's great that you reached out and if you feel like you want to talk more about what's going on or you need more resources feel free to call us 24/7 at 1800-RUNAWAY or chat us from 4:30-11:30 at www.1800runaway.org.

    Best of luck,

    NRS

      I want a baby but i'm only 13

      Recently I've got in with the gypsy crowd and they al want babies and no jobs. I want to be a police officer but I also want to follow the gyspy lifestyle. I have had boyfriends but I want a baby girl to love and raise how I wish I was raised. But i'm scared because i'm only 13 and I'm scared of what my parents would do they're not violent people and have never laid a finger on me but i'm still worried. I also only want a girl. Should I give up on my dream of being in the police force and have a baby now and become a gypsy housewife. Or should I forget about my gypsy friends and study? please help as I am also contemplating running away but I don't want my parents to get in trouble

        Re: I want a baby but i'm only 13

        Hi there,

        Thanks for reaching out to us here at the National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like you have been going through a lot lately and we are here to help the best we can.

        So it sounds like one of your goals has been to become a police officer, but lately you have met friends that have different goals and it has been making you second guess your own. This is totally understandable, it’s easy to become influenced by people that you respect and admire. We are not here to judge, nor are we were to tell anyone what to do. You know your situation better than we do or ever will. Our main priority is your safety. We want to make sure you are safe in whatever decision you make. You shared with us that you are 13 and you are thinking about having a baby, but you would only want a girl. Do you feel like you would be able to handle the responsibility of taking care of another person? Planned Parenthood at (800) 230 7526 can be a great resource to discuss these responsibilities with. If you did decide to have a baby, is there anyone that you would be able to reach out to for help financially and emotionally if you needed help along the way?

        You shared with us that your parents are not violent, but you are still scared about what they would do if you decided to run away. It is good to hear that you have felt safe at home with them, and it is understandable that you would feel scared not knowing how they would react if you left. We’re not legal experts here, but generally speaking if you leave home without permission from your legal guardians, it is considered running away and they would have the right to make a runaway report. Running away is not illegal, it’s a status offense which just means usually if the police find you, they just bring you back home. However, anyone that you stay with when/if you are filed as a runaway, could be charged for harboring a runaway. If you run away, is there a safe place that you have in mind that you would be going to?

        Again, we’re not here to tell you what to do. We just want to make sure that you are safe. There are a few things that can be really helpful to think about when deciding to leave home or not:

        What else can I do to improve my home situation before I leave?
        What would make me stay at home?
        How will I survive?
        Is running away safe?
        Who can I count on to help me?
        Am I being realistic?
        Have I given this enough thought?
        What are my other options?
        If I end up in trouble, who will I call?
        When I return home, what will happen?

        We are here to support you. If you would like to discuss your situation further, or if you need any resources please do not hesitate to call our 24/7, anonymous and confidential hotline at 1800runaway or join us on chat from 4:30pm to 11:30pm CST through 1800runaway.org.

        Good luck and stay safe,

                RE: how long until you get your period

                Hello,

                Thanks for reaching out. It sounds like you are worried that you might be pregnant. That sounds really scary, and we are here to listen and support you in any way that we can. If you have recently had unprotected sex, there is a chance that you could be pregnant. Most girls get a period about once a month, but everyone's body is different and a lot of things other than pregnancy can make your period late. Your cramps could be a sign that you are about to get your period. If your period is late by over a week, there is a chance you could be pregnant. You can purchase a home pregnancy test at a pharmacy without having to tell your parents or guardian. You can go to www.sexetc.org for more information about pregnancy and your options. Another good resource is the Planned Parenthood hotline, who you can call at 1-800-230-7526.

                It sounds like you are in a really tough situation right now, and we are here to help however we can. If you need someone to talk to, we are here for you and all of our services are completely confidential. Please call us directly at 1-800-786-2929. We are looking forward to hearing from you soon, and wish you the best of luck.

                    Hello,

                    Thank you for reaching out to us and sharing with us of what is going on. It sounds like there is a lot going on and it is understandable that you are worried about what might happen. We are not medical experts, but we do want to make sure that you re safe in what you decide and have the best information for you. We would like to offer you Planned Parenthood at 1800-230-7526. This is place you can talk to about the signs that you are experiencing and maybe they would also have more information to give you based on what you give them. They may also be able to refer you to a doctor that can confirm if you ar pregnant. We understand that you are scared about what could happen.

                    This might be a time for you to turn to a trusted adult about what has been going on. It sound like it is stressful and can be a lot to deal with in any situation. A trusted adult can be a friend’s mom, maybe someone at school, family member, or even us. You can always call us or chat with us on our website. We are always here to listen and support you in what ways we can.

                    We hoped this helped and if you would like to discuss your situation in greater detail you can always give us a call on our hotline or chat with us on our website. We look forward to hearing from you and we wish you the best of luck.

                        RE: pregant at 13

                        Hello there –

                        Thank you so much for reaching out to us here at the National Runaway Safeline and posting out our public bulletin board. From reading your post it sounds like you at looking for some answers and/or solutions to the situation that you are currently in. It’s very brave of you to reach out to someone for help, that’s pretty mature of you to do. It certainly seems like a very difficult situation to be in, especially if you don’t know what your next steps are going to be. Hopefully we can help you with some of those thoughts.

                        I know that you have stated that it was both of your first time having sex and not using a condom, but it also sounds like you might not be sure if you’re pregnant. If this just happened then you are right about it being too early to take a pregnancy test to know for sure. You have also stated that you are on birth control, but don’t believe in abortion. That’s definitely your choice of what you want to do with your body and no one can take that away. The only thing is that taking birth control doesn’t cause you to have an abortion. The way that it works is when you take the pill it prevents you from getting pregnant; mainly by stopping ovulation. If no egg is released, there is nothing to be fertilized by sperm, and the woman cannot get pregnant. So if you have been following your pill regiment, you might not have been ovulating at the time of intercourse.

                        So it's still possible that you may not be. It might help to take things day by day so you don't get too stressed about something that may not be happening. If you would like to take a pregnancy test you may be able to get some help with that through “Planned Parenthood.” They are a sexual and reproductive healthcare provider. You can reach them at 1-800-230-7526, or at www.PlannedParenthood.org. They can also answer any questions you might have about your current situation. Another great resource might be to reach out to “Emergency Contraception Hotline.” They focus on those that have had unprotected sex in the last 72 hours and are afraid of getting pregnant. They can be reached by dialing 888.668.2528.
                        Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.

                          I'm 13 and want to get pregnant.

                          I'm 13 y/o and I have a 14 y/o boyfriend. I'm on birth control and we have unprotected sex. In my family there were a lot of teen pregnancies, but I don't see them as an issue. I want to be pregnant, and so does my boyfriend. With the type of birth control I'm on, the chance is slim to none. I've been having a few early pregnancy symptoms but honestly I have no clue if I could be pregnant. If I am there's no way I would even begin to consider abortion. Adoption maybe, but never abortion. I am way to nervous to ask my mom to buy me a pregnancy test. What do I do....

                            Hi there,

                            Thanks so much for reaching out to us. It sounds like you are trying to figure out what to do at this point regarding the possibility of being pregnant, and we’re glad that you contacted us for some assistance. We are here to help as much as we can.

                            So it sounds like you are concerned that you may be pregnant, but do not want to ask your mom for a pregnancy test. It sounds like you and your boyfriend use birth control but do use any sort of protection. If this is a matter of not being able to access health care items, you can call us here at National Runaway Safeline (800) 786 2929, and we can try to find some resources local to you.

                            We are not here to tell you what you should or should not do, we’re just here to help keep you safe. You know your situation better than we do. We can help you work through your options and next steps with you. It sounds like you do not feel that abortion is an option and that is entirely your decision to make. We’re not here to push you in one direction or another. If you are looking for assistance with a pregnancy test, Planned Parenthood would be able to either provide that testing or find alternative resources for you as well. Their hotline is (800) 230 7526.

                            It sounds like you do not feel like teen pregnancy is an issue within your family, and that is okay. There can be some helpful things to think about regarding the possibility of pregnancy, and what steps you would take if this were the case:
                            Where would you and your child live?
                            How would you support you and your child?
                            What is your relationship like with your boyfriend? Does he want to raise a child right now?

                            We’re here 24/7 to talk and work through your possible options, provide resources and support to you in any way that we can. Please do not hesitate to call or chat with us.

                            Best of luck,
                            NRS

                              13 pregnant scared

                              im a 13 year old girl, and I have been talking to this guy for a few months now(we are not going out), but I did something really stupid the other day and had sex with another boy (without a condom) I think im pregnant and I've told a few close friends.
                              I told the guy im talking to that i had sex but he ended the call kind of worryingly.
                              I didnt mean to 'cheat' and i do want to keep the baby, i haven't told the boy i had sex with that i might be pregnant or the boy im talking to and i don't want to tell my family.
                              I am going to take a pregnancy test after Christmas for a more accurate result.
                              But i don't know what to do after that tbh...

                                Re: 13 pregnant scared

                                Hello, thank you so much for reaching out to us. It sounds like you are worried that you might be pregnant, and what steps to take if you are. It was very brave of you to ask for help in such a personal matter.

                                It is a good idea to take a test, but it will not be accurate until you have gotten or missed your period.
                                You mentioned that you had sex without protection. If you would like information about condoms and other forms of birth control and S.T.D prevention, a good resource is the website sexetc.org.

                                It sounds like you want to keep the baby if it turns out that you are pregnant. If you are comfortable discussing the possibility of this, you may want to tell a trusted adult in your life, such as a school counselor or your parents/legal guardians. It is also good that you trusted your friends enough to tell them about your situation.

                                At the National Runaway Safeline, we can explore some other options if you choose to call us, including helping you to talk to your family if the test is positive. Again, the fact that you reached out and asked for help makes you a very strong person. If you would like to discuss this further, please to not hesitate to call or chat with us. We are here to listen and help.
