I was told you can never get pregnant on the pill.

I'm 14 years old and my boyfriend is 20. We just started having sex a few weeks ago, and we haven't been using a condom because I'm on the pill.
I was told that when you're on the pill you can never get pregnant, but now I feel weird because every time I wake up in the morning I throw up, and there are certain foods I don't love eating anymore.
I haven't told my bf about this because I'm afraid of losing him.
He has made promises to me, promises I'm sure he's going to keep. I'm not ready to be a mom, I don't even know how to take care of babies, but I really want to keep my baby. Please help

The combined pill is a very safe contraception if you take it properly, but there is always a very small risk of failure with any method. The first thing you need to do is to have a pregnancy test done. It may be a false alarm but you need to know for sure. I would advise you to go to a pregnancy centre, or oung people's clinic so that someone professional can do an accurate test for you.
If you are pregnant they will be able to talk through your choices and help you to get all the support you need.find a centre for pregnancy choices support in your area.
