I'm 14 years old and my period is late by a week and a half

Hi, I am 14 yrs old. I know I should have never had sex at my age but I and my partner have been together for 2 yrs and we are very close, so close at this very moment he is trying to find every piece of information to help me have an abortion.

I never wanted a baby and yes we were safe but somehow I have missed my period by a week and a ½ and think I'm pregnant and saw this and now need your help.

I'm so scared of telling my parents and am hoping I will start my period but nothing is happening. Does this mean I am pregnant and what should I do to get rid of it? x plz reply soon x

The first thing you need to do is get a pregnancy test done to check if you really are pregnant. You can get a free pregnancy test at a pregnancy centre. Follow the link to find a centre for unplanned pregnancy support in your area. or go to a contraceptive and sexual health clinic, or buy a test yourself from a pharmacy. Once you have a definite result you will know what you are facing. It would be good to talk things through with someone, if not your parents then another trusted adult, or there are trained advisors at pregnancy centres to help you think through your choices, and give you all the information you need.
