So I don't think this is against the rules..but it could be...
So my boyfriend and I did the deed around June 10th. We didn't use any form of protection because he is almost completely sterile. But about two to three weeks later I started feeling sick. Constant headaches, nauseous sometimes and just feeling like I had the flue. I didn't think much of it. I missed my period and I thought maybe it's just late, I though that loosing my virginity messed up my cycle. Well about 5 days after my missed period (like the day it is supposed to end) it came out positive. I went about a week thinking it could have been a false positive and took another test a week and a day later and it said positive as well. I've been having these cramps in the lower part of my stomach, they feel like period cramps but are mild. And also like spasms or cramps (DISCLAIMER) like Insude my vagina opening but a little bit more deeper. I have no if this is normal or not and frankly...I am scared. I wanna take care if my body and not screw up or risk the baby. I would be i believe a little over a month now from the time we did the deed...
hey dear, if it is about a month since you did the deed, you are roughly 7-8 weeks pregnant now and it would be good if you would go to a doctor and get checked. Also, start taking prenatal vitamins for the baby, you don't need a prescription for those. The cramps you feel are normal in pregnancy as your uterus is stretching to accommodate the baby. If there is no bleeding/spotting with those, there is nothing to worry.
Did you already tell your boyfriend and your family?
and how did your boyfriend know he is "almost completely sterile"? Because from your situation now, it is pretty certain that he's far from that. Did he take a fertility test or was it just his assumption?
Surely you'd be approximately 6 weeks pregnant if you're 4 weeks past conception? Cramping and pinching and pulling are all normal in early pregnancy as long as they're not severe and accompanied by bleeding.
Congratulations on your pregnancy and take good care of yourself. I was 17 when I fell pregnant with my first, and she is almost 16 now while I'm carrying number 4 lol.
...you did know that young men claiming to be infertile is the oldest trick in the book yes? Because using protection 'feels icky'? Sigh. I've heard this story many times from so many people, including 3 young women I know personnaly, two of which mysteriously ended up pregnant and alone...
Without trying to be preachy, please always use protection, there are plenty of other good reasons beyond preventing pregnancy.
With that said, hope things work out for you and you get support and help while figuring this all out.
I have told my boyfriend and he was super excited. He did have a fertility test done but that was a few years back I believe. I don't believe he said that to get out of using protection because he is a very polite guy he asks before he does anything. And he asked if I'd like him to use it. I told him no. So it is my fault. But he told me that he was born sterile but he had surgery and it made him a little more fertile. His doctor said He'd need to take i believe steroids to increase his fertility when he wants to start a family or that over time his body could produce more sperm. I am really confused on that but. I'm just glad he was excited about it.
Have you told your parents? I'm sorry to say but the infertility story is raising a lot of red flags for me. Please make sure you have other support as well as your boyfriend so you're not in a situation where you find yourself dependent on him, financially, emotionally or otherwise.
My parents don't know yet. I'm waiting till I am 18 before telling them. I don't want him in trouble. I don't let myself be dependent on others. I have a hard B be been saving and stuff just in case. I believe him because he showed me the paperwork from the doctor. I don't think he would lie about it.
I got pregnant at 19 with DD and her dad claimed to be infertile so we used no protection.
He's married to someone else now (him and I were never "together" and didn't get together and he was with her during my pregnancy and I was incredibly fine with that lol) and they had him checked as they were having issues conceiving. They reported low sperm count and that he would have trouble conceiving.
Fast forward 5 years and she's pregnant with their 3rd child, no issues conceiving their last 2.
We only dtd a few times here and there and I fell pregnant.
You just never know. Always use protection, even just to protect yourself.
However, deed is done and it sounds like you are both excited.
