yes, it could happen.

if you had sex less than 4 days ago, please go to your doctor, a clinic, or Planned Parenthood (1.800.800.PLAN) and ask for emergency contraception (the morning after pill). The sooner, the more effective the pills.

If it was a while ago, wait 10 days after the incident then tke a home pregnancy test. If it comes up negative, then thank your lucky stars and go back to the store and buy condoms and lube. then use them forever and ever afterwards (till you're ready for kids, anyway)

If you are pregnant, call your doctor and start getting prenatal care. Or you can get care from clinics or Planned Parenthood.

Also, because you had unprotected sex, you need to get STD screens. You can also do that at the doctor, a clinic or PP.

well, parenting is a tough task, i'm sure you are well aware.

if i were you, i'd make that appointment at PP anyway. if you do in fact definitely truly want to keep this possible pregnancy you don't need to take the pills. But it's always good to book that appt. ASAP.

Sit down and talk to your boyfriend. Two years is a long time, but is it as long as the 18 years or more that it takes to raise a child? Your boyfriend might not be ready and/or to raise a child. If you have a baby, it is likely that he's going to have to be responsible for it, too. This is something you should both come to an agreement on.

Check out the Pregnancy and Parenting forum and read the threads about what life is like as a teen parent.

A Day in the Life http://www.scarleteen.com/forum/Forum10/HTML/000274.html

Anyway, my point is, make that appointment. Talk to your boyfriend before you go to the clinic. Then you can decide if you want to take those pills.

imho, you're proably young. if you haven't finished school, you should do that first. education helps pay the bills in the long run. there'll be plenty of time for kids, maybe marriage and work. enjoy your youth and your freedom while you can.

You can get pretty accurate results from most home pregnancy tests at least 10 days after you had sex. Your best bet is to test more than once though, just to make sure you don't end up with either a false positive or negative.

i originally misread your post (i'm too hyped up on caffeine and it's shortening my attention span. sorry!)

well, if hormonal birth control is out of the question and you are still considering non-hormonal back-up options in addition to condoms and lube, here's a thread on the topic:

And if you choose to not use emergency contraception, then yes, you can wait ten days and take a preg. test.

well, the pill is simpler, and if you do want children, you can always try again later especially if conditions are a little more optimal for raising kids (steady job, decent income, stability). it gets so much more difficult if you're not sure whether you want a child, but you have one, and then decide that it wasn't the best choice at that moment.

anyway, good luck, and i hope you and your boyfriend come to a concensus about parenting.
