    I’m really sorry to hear this, and I’m really sorry that I can’t say anything to help. But I’m glad you’re with a guy who’s supportive, and that you have a plan in case you are pregnant. I know this isn’t necessarily the best thing to hear, but just I hope things get better for you I really do.

    It’s really hard to tell if you are pregnant or not, unless you grab a pregnancy test. You can usually get them from even a dollar store, just to know for sure. My now wife and I learned the hard way that the symptoms of early pregnancy and an oncoming period are very similar, and we had quite a few scares when we were younger. Whether you’re pregnant or not, just know that it’s always hard to tell parents when you are pregnant. When I told my parents, I was already married and owned my own house, but I was still scared to death to tell them they were going to be grandparents. If you are pregnant, the best thing is for you to tell them. I would at least wait until a first visit with an OB/GYN before telling though. Things can easily go wrong within the first few weeks of a pregnancy, and it really hurts everyone involved if a lot know and something were to happen. Your parents may be disappointed at first, but I’m sure they will come around to it and support you. If they are halfway respectable people, they aren’t going to toss you on the street. They will realize that things happen sometimes. Either way, I would definitely wait to make sure. Grab a pregnancy test (you can grab some of the really cheap ones for a couple of dollars), and if it is positive, wait until after your first ultrasound to tell them. If a test comes up negative and you still haven’t had a period, give it a couple of weeks and try a test again, and just repeat until you have a period. Don’t worry. It’s not the end of the world! It’s great too that you have a boyfriend who is willing to support you. I image it would be rough to deal with this alone, but having someone there for you always helps.
