im so sorry to keep posting and i really appricate how nice you have been but if i just reply i don' think you will be able to see. i know u can get them at all those places but would a school nurse have them or anywhere that i could go that my parents won't find out because i don;t have a car to go to planned parenthood.

No, we can definitely see replies, hon. In the future, could you keep it all to one thread as much as possible? Saves on bandwidth, which saves on money.

The thing about emergency contraception is, as it's quite potent, people can't just give it out OTC. It requires a prescription, which your school nurse can't give. So, you've probably got two options: one, tell your parents you're sexually active and ask them to take you to get EC (this is the option i strongly, strongly endorse), or two, wait the 10-14 days and take a pregnancy test. Of course, if you're pregnant, you're going to have to tell them then.

You can also find EC providers here: http://ec.princeton.edu/providers/index.html
or call 1-800-NOT-2-LATE

good luck, hon.

put your hands on the wheel, let the golden age begin
let the window down, feel the moonlight on your skin
let the desert wind cool your aching head
let the weight of the world drift away instead

these days, i barely get by. i don't even try.
