Teen Sex - Have you just found out you are pregnant and worried sick? Are you unsure what to do or who to turn too? Is your reason for concern that of being too young for motherhood or the trouble you expect from having underage sex? Does your concern involve protecting your partner? The most common of all concerns is telling your parents you are pregnant, right. Come on girls' mom and dad ain't so bad. In fact your parents are the two most important people in your life right now that you need more than anything else in the world. An impulse decision made to have an abortion can leave you full of remorse later in life. Parents have a duty to fulfil. Their parental role is to protect their children and "their" kids too, do not deny them nanny and granddad responsibilities.

Have you had teen sex and showing signs of pregnancy? If so the first step is to face the music and tell your parents sooner than later. Mom and dad can only display disappointment for a while and any hollering if any will not last forever. Parents do calm down after having time to mull over the situation of which may have come as the biggest shock of their life. Parents have earned the right to be upset don't you agree. A combination of sadness and madness on hearing the news is normal. Most outbursts are normally caused when parents see their dream shattered. Witnessing their child's career or that of having a life go down the swanee can be unbearable for some. However there are many teen mums with a baby who cope and still manage to return to school, but you may bet the biggest majority have the support of their folks behind them.

Have you been fortunate with your teen sex encounters and evaded pregnancy, well next time you may not be so lucky. Contraception (condoms/birth control pill) should be used for protection agains't sexually transmitted diseases (STD) and unwanted babies. The long wait for your period to arrive following sexual intercourse without protection can cause severe stress.

Pregnancy symptoms differ from woman to woman; if you have been sexually active do a home pregnancy test to clarify. Bleeding can happen in pregnancy only shorter or lighter than a normal period. Surrounding skin around the nipples may get darker. Early Symptoms of pregnancy can begin before your first missed period.

Pregnancy symptoms

1. Swollen breasts and tenderness.

2. Lethargic

3. Morning sickness. This normally happens between 2-8 weeks after conception.

4. Pain in the lower back; backache can remain throughout the entire pregnancy.

5. The sudden rise of hormones in the body can cause headaches early in pregnancy.

6. Around 6-8 weeks after conception - urinating can become more frequent

The flood of hormones in the body in early pregnancy can make you unusually emotional and weepy. Mood swings are common, especially in the first trimester. The symptoms mentioned here aren't always unique to pregnancy. Some can signify that you are nearing your first menstrual cycle. (Period)

Food cravings can be the norm for a pregnant woman. Cravings can include strawberry jam and mustard pickle sandwich filling or tuna and chocolate on a bun how yummy is that, maybe not for those who watch from "afar."

How to use a home pregnancy test kit purchased from a chemist.

1 Wash your hands before and after pregnancy test.

2 Remove the test applicator (stick) from the foil wrapper.

3 Sit comfortably on the toilet do not rush.

4 Locate the test applicator in line with the urine stream with the "result window" facing upwards.

6 Wee onto the applicator for the time suggested on the instruction leaflet.

7 Wait until results appear.

Pregnancy test kits may show a different result symbol (negative positive) Regular test sticks display a blue line through the middle of the result window or a simple yes or no. If you find urinating onto the test stick awkward then wee into a tumbler and plunge the stick into this. Discard the container after use. If the test reads positive tell mom first then make an appointment with your doctor.

Home pregnancy test kits employ monoclonal antibodies to identify a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG), which is created by the developing placenta starting on the day on which the embryo implants in the uterine wall.
