Hi scarleteen, I am sixteen, I was recently late for a couple of months. My boyfriend and I had thought i was pregnant. I did show alot of signs of pregnancy and I really thought i was pregnant. We even got to the stage of being so comfortable with it that we were arguing about names. During the last couple months of me being late i would get these horrible pains while doing work which then i slowed down on doing so much work, it got to the point where it would hurt during intercourse. We soon suspected something was wrong, but before that i had a UTI, but i do not know if that is important or not. IT soon got to the point where we thought i had a ectopic frequencies, which i was also experiencing alot of those signs, along with similar signs due to a miscarriage. focusing on my symptoms we focused are attention to the ectopic pregnencies... soon i then got my period, he was ecstatic... i was in alot of emotional pain those last months were very hard and my thoughts of being pregnant ended in the last couple of weeks till i got my period i then was still concerned and my boyfriend thought i was just late. He soon suspected when talking to his friends about and they said they think i had a miscarriage... I did experience white fluid before i had my period which i didn't really think much of, i also had alot of blood clot and so on... what could this all mean....???
No. i have not seen a doctor at all... and in the beggining of the relationship we were always having safe sex by using condoms. It is hard for me to see the doctor becuase i have been recently been pulled off of my families insurance and my parents have no idea that i am having sex with my boyfriend so i really wanted to stay away from the doctors.

It's a smart idea to get regular reproductive health care, regardless of whether you are currently sexually active. So, if that's an option, you can talk to your parents about helping you make an appointment with a gynecologist. You don't have to tell them about your concerns, you can just let them know you want to have your first check-up. Anything that you wind up discussing with your doctor is confidential, so you don't have to worry about your parents finding out.
Another option would be to visit a clinic such as Planned Parenthood or similar. Many of those clinics charge on a sliding scale, so you can afford to pay for it even without insurance.
