Hi, I am 16 and I had one miscarriage and I did not know I was pregnant.

Hi, I am 16 and I had one miscarriage and I did not know I was pregnant. This was about 3 months ago...

I’ve been feeling dizzy, had lots of nausea. I also feel bloated and have cramps for about a minute or less then it goes away and comes back every other 30 mins or so. I am about 2 weeks late on my period.

But I am so young and scared that the pregnancy test would come out positive. I just want anyone to help me out or give me any suggestions or anyone that does think I might be pregnant. I’m not saying that being pregnant is a bad thing but I have so many things on my mind I don’t know what to think anymore.

Please help me out... thanks.

Thanks for writing in…You seem very uncertain about what is going on and a bit scared about what might happen, but the truth is that it’s better to find out properly and have people help you in your situation. If you haven’t seen a doctor, then arrange an appointment, but if that seems too difficult at first then ring your nearest centre. You need to see someone face to face to talk this through and get the support you need as soon as possible.
