I'm a 16 year old girl, and crazy in love.

I'm a 16 year old girl, and crazy in love. Yeah. Some people might call me silly for 'thinking' I'm in love, but I'm not stupid. I've never felt like this before. Anyway, a month ago, I was starting on a new pill packet. The doctor said that I should not rely on the pill for contraception until I had been on it for 14 days, so me and my boyfriend of 9 months used a condom, but it broke.
Now I'm always feeling nauseated and feeling like I'm about to throw up. I don't know what to do. My boyfriend says we will be okay, but I have a job, and if I'm pregnant how am I suppose to earn money to support him/her when I'm almost about to pop? I'm stressing, I cry every night, I don't know what to do. My family is already in a bad financial state and this will kill my whole family. :(

Editor's Comment

It would be good to do a pregnancy test to check whether you really are pregnant as sometimes the contraceptive pill can make you feel nauseous. You can get a pregnancy test done at a pregnancy centre, young people's clinic, or buy one from a pharmacy and do the test yourself. If you would like help getting the pregnancy test done please contact CareConfidential for support around unprotected sex.
