i had unprotected sex yesterday. the pull out method.. yah stupIDDDD I know!!!!!! but yeah
I dont really have a way to the clinic. i dont really want to go b/c the onlye wayt there is to tell my parents n they would kill me. N i need to know kinda fast so if its going to take me 2 menstral cycles then i would have to find a way to get to the clinic.
but will you please tell me if you had sex that close to ur period like 6 days... this period thats suppose to be here the 22nd that wont happen if im pregnant right? or would i have to wait till the next one since thats so close to the date im suppose to start? *considerin u could be preg n still have ur period*
Just curious.........

You know, hon, just to give some perspective: what's worse: asking your parents (or another person you trust) to drive you to your docs, the er or a clinic (sexual health, 24 hour or otherwise) - these are all places where you can get emergency contraception- or to ask them for a drive to an abortion clinic or the hospital to give birth? Sounds very harsh, but these are your choices here.

I know it's not easy to ask for assistance when you need it because you made a mistake, but really, you should get emergency contraception, which can lower your risk of being pregnant by a whopping 80% instead of waiting for your period.
Are there buses in your area? Do you have a bike? A relative you trust who'd drive you? Maybe your partner's parents or one of his siblings? A taxi? If you really want and have to get somwhere, there is always a way to get there.

I really hope you decide to get yourself to a clinic for emergency contraception. You'll need to get to a clinic sooner or later anyway because of the STD risk both you and your partner had, so why not do it straight away?

On a general note: could you please take the time to use correct English, rather than netspeak and abbreviations in the future? This makes understanding and reading your posts a lot easier. Thank you.

btw, you asked this in Ask ST already. Please don't double post. We promise we'll answer you as soon as possible, but asking over and over again isn't going to either: give you an answer you want to hear (as opposed to the one that's right) or make us answer faster.

so go get to the ER. get emergency contraception. buy condoms on your way home or tell your boyfriend you won't have sex with him again until you can both be more responsible. and never ever ever never double post. good luck.
