Don't go by any "symptoms" because the symptoms people usually report with pregnancy are also symptoms for another handful of ailments.

What you SHOULD do is take another pregnancy test now. If it's negative, you're probably not pregnant and are just going through some irregularity right now, if you continue to miss periods or experience very irregular ones, you may want to speak to a gynecologist about it. You're only 15, though, so irregularity unfortunately tends to come with the age.

Also, having unprotected intercourse puts you and your partner at a risk for STDs, so you both should plan on getting a full STD screening if you haven't already.

Mother nature doesn't care what age you are. If you are menstruating, you can get pregnant. dailicious' advice is wise. take it.
