      RE: Need to know

      Hello,

      Thanks for reaching out to us for help. We are sorry to hear you are not feeling well, and it is understandable that you feel afraid. You mentioned that you are having stomach pain. Lots of things can cause stomach pain and bloating that are not pregnancy, including regular menstrual periods. You said you haven’t had sexual intercourse. You can’t get pregnant unless you had sexual activity where semen entered your vagina, so you probably are not pregnant. If you aren’t sure, this website, www.sexetc.org, has tons of helpful information about sex and pregnancy. If you are pregnant, you won’t have your period like usual. If your period is late, you can take an at-home pregnancy test, which you can buy at any drug store, to make sure. If you are doing anything sexual with another person, you could be at risk for pregnancy and diseases, so if you need information about condoms and birth control, www.sexetc.org has all the info you need about safe sex and how to avoid getting pregnant or getting an STD in the future. Since you probably aren’t pregnant, you may want to tell your mom about your stomach pain and go to the doctor in case it is something serious. You can always call us any time 24/7 or chat with us online if you need to talk. We are here to listen and support you in any way that we can. We are looking forward to hearing from you, and wish you the best of luck.
      Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat which is open every day from 4:30p to 11:30p CST and can be accessed here:

          re: no title

          Hey there,

          Thanks for reaching out to us here at the National Runaway Safeline and sharing your experience with us. It is a courageous step to take that is not always easy. It sounds like you are in a difficult situation. Becoming pregnant and feeling unprepared or unsure of what to do next can be a scary thing to face. We are always here to listen and help as best as possible. Taking this step by step can help to make this stressful time a little less overwhelming. Identifying people in your life that you can trust to support you during this time may be a good start to seeking help and exploring your options.

          If you suspect that you may be pregnant or are currently unsure, confirming pregnancy is a good first step. This can look like purchasing a pregnancy test after you have missed a menstrual period or you can get this confirmation by possibly going to a local clinic for a blood test.

          If you are currently trying to have a baby, you would need to consider a lot of things that might happen or affect your situation. Both of you are under 18 and likely still living with a parent/guardian. You may want to think of how they would react to you being pregnant, and how upset they might be with the situation. Also consider how the two of you would take care of a baby physically and financially at your age. Things may not work out as you planned. You can also find some information online at sexetc.org about youth pregnancy. It's hard to say what will exactly happen legally, since we don't know your family situation. If you’d like additional support or resources please call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY 24 hours, 7 days a week or chat with us online by going to www.1800RUNAWAY.org.

          Take care,
          NRS

              RE: 13 and pregnant

              Hello,

              Thank you so much for your post. We are here to listen and support you in any way that we can. We are so sorry to hear that you were raped. Nobody deserves that, and you did not deserve to have that happen at all. We are happy to help you figure out your next steps. One resource that could be really helpful is RAINN, the National Sexual Assault Hotline. You can call them at 1-800-656-4673 or go to www.rainn.org. They are confidential and open 24/7. If the rape occurred less than 3 days ago, you may be able to take emergency contraception to avoid becoming pregnant. The law is different based on your location, but in many states you can just ask for the pill at a pharmacy. Sexetc.org is a great source of information about the laws in your area regarding this, and they have tons of helpful information about pregnancy and all your options. You can also call the Planned Parenthood hotline at 1-800-230-7526 or go to plannedparenthood.org to ask questions or make an appointment to see a doctor, which you may be able to do without parental permission depending on what state you live in. It is understandable to feel afraid to go into a store, however you can purchase a pregnancy test legally in any drug store or online and there is nothing to be ashamed of. Knowing for sure if you are pregnant is important so you can figure out what your plans are. One thing to keep in mind is that you need to wait until after your period is late to take a pregnancy test. We are here to talk about options any time 24/7, and we can support you in making a plan to stay safe. Nobody deserves to be raped, and we are absolutely here to help however we can. We are looking forward to hearing from you soon, and wish you the best of luck.

                  Hello there thanks for reaching out. Sorry to hear that you are going through so much right now, sounds like you are in a really scary situation not knowing if you are pregnant, and being worried about telling your mom. You seem incredibly brave for going through this and we commend you for asking for help.

                  If you have a trusted adult in your life, you might also include them on the conversation with your mom, if you decide to tell her. They might be able to advocate for your needs and act as a support for you during that extremely difficult conversation.

                  If you haven’t already, you might consider taking a pregnancy test. If you are unable to get it yourself, you might ask your boyfriend or his mom to get you one. You might also contact the experts on reproductive health at Planned Parenthood to learn about resources in your area at 1-800-230-7526. You might also see what your rights are to reproductive health care as a minor in your state by clicking on your state on this link: https://sexetc.org/action-center/sex-in-the-states/.

                  Please do not hesitate to call or chat us if you ever would like to talk through your situation. We can provide support, help brainstorm your options, and possibly provide additional helpful resources.

                  Best of luck,

                  NRS

                I'm 14, and my girlfriend just turned 14 a few days ago... she's pregnant and I'm really scared. I know she's the one who it's understandable if she's scared, but I don't know what to do... most guys leave their girls when they find out they're pregnant, but I really love her
                the only other person who knows about it is my older sister (who completely flipped out)
                She really loves school and stuff and she doesn't want to drop out but my sister is trying to convince her to
                i don't know what to do

                  Thank you so much for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. It’s good to hear that you told your sister, but it sounds like she did not react in the way you had hoped. It sounds like you really love your girlfriend, and want to support her as best you can. One way to do this is make sure she, and you, know all your options. There are a lot of options where your girlfriend could stay in school, including learning more about getting an abortion. To learn more information, you could call Planned Parenthood at 1-800-230-7526, and see what they have to say. Furthermore, she could stay in school for the majority of her pregnancy even if you didn’t want to go down the road of terminating the pregnancy. A lot of schools have support systems set up in order to help pregnant teens, and doing further investigation into what your school can do to help would be a good place to start. If you both feel comfortable, try to talk to a guidance counselor.

                  Another option is talking to your parents, and seeing what they think. You could also talk to your girlfriend’s parents if she felt comfortable. This is a really tough situation, and it is important to make sure you both feel safe with the decisions you are making. You took a really big step by talking to your sister, and although she reacted badly, you should continue to reach out and build a support system, if you feel comfortable.

                  Please call us if you would like to talk more, or if you want resources specific to where you live, like the Planned Parenthood in your area, or other service. We’re anonymous, confidential and available 24 hours a day. Call us if you’d like at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929)

                  Best of luck.
