OMG 8 lol she was probably kidding! And yes I agree, young people should not have babies! I got pregnant in high school, and found out right before my 17th birthday. It was so scary and so hard, but I am a great mother and I love my son more than life itself! But this is, in fact, a rare case!
People always comment "Oh, well maybe the protection didn't work!". Do you have any idea how unlikely that is? Condoms have over a 95% prevention rate on their own, and when used with birth control pills, it's over 99.9%. OP almost certainly was not using protection, or was using it wrong.
99 Your comment makes no sense. Just because the protection might not have worked, doesn't change the fact that she was being sexually active at 15. Plus the way everyone is using "whore" is wrong. A whore is a prostitute or someone who has multiple partners. You have no proof that OP was doing that
I kind of agree with 245, because a lot of cultures have kids at a young age. its just in our upbringing that people learn to think that it's wrong. But of course, you're supposed to wait until you're married, so I think we should just blame the government. I'm sure a lot of younger people would get married if their wasn't a law to prevent it. (: okay, I typed my opinion, I'm out.
if she was pregnant and was using birth control pill and she was on antibiotics, it can cancel out the birth control and since she's 16 she problem didn't pay too much attention to her gyno when she was told this. BUt the OP is still irresponsilbe and should have used other methods or just NOT HAVE SEX AT 16 .. just saying.
People In these third world countries have kids at a young age because there life expectancy is short. It's like saying "well women In England during the 15th century got pregnant around the age of 14. So women(little kids) should do the same today". When obviously they had to have kids young since they only lived into their late thirties, early fifties at the best.
I think people are getting the wrong picture. it is ILLEGAL to have sex under 16! she had sex just before her 16th birthday. it is her fault for being so immature. And to those saying "in the 15th century people have children at 14", well, this is the 21st century! Do something about your problem instead of FML'ing about it.
327, it is not illegal to have sex under the age of 18, or a lot more teen parents would be in jail. the only case for statutory rape here would be if the father is over 18, since she had sex with him when she was 15. in some states the age of consent is 16 or 17. anyway, fyl op. good luck whatever you do. if you decide to go that way, planned parenthood offers a sliding payment scale.
Forget about the OP, this sucks for her unborn child. Please put the child up for adoption so that it can have a loving family that is able to provide for it. Being raised by a single mother is not what's best for a child and often times with teen pregnancy the father will not be in the child's life. Choose adoption for the child.
All of you calling the OP a whore or a slut or some other word with a similar meaning, you don't know the surrounding circumstances. I'm not defending anything she did, but it doesn't make someone a whore or a slut if she had only one sexual partner, and especially not if she was raped. Obviously, she could've been more careful, because most contraceptives work when A) used properly and B) used with other methods, so she likely screwed up on one or both of those points. But a person is only a whore or a slut if they sleep around. If she did that, then by all means she is a slut, but we don't know that. :)
you guys are all fucking morons. everyone has their own damn opinion. I was 17 when I had my son I'm still with the daddy I'm in a University and I work on top of that we love our child to death. it depends on the person some get the big picture and settle down others are MORONS so everyone just shut up!! and let her make her own decision.
Excuse me but i once read a book and it was about a 10 year old girl who got married its called i am nujood age 10 and divorced she fought for the rights of the girls in her country who were married by there fathers and allowed them to be able to get a divorce so compared to that this is fine
go get the ru486 pill. take it, have a period, and your problems will be over. otherwise your future will be very difficult indeed.

Just because she pregnant doesn't mean she's a slut. The first time I had sex I got pregnant. The same couldve happend to her. I was 17 when I found out I was pregnant, now I'm 18 & life couldn't be better. Yeah, its hard but not impossible. & you have someone whose gonna love you forever & thinks the world of youu(: My son's my bestfriend. I can't imagine a life without him.
Ofcourse it doesn't mean she's a slut. It's so cheap and rude to call people sluts because they don't live their (sexual) life like some people would prefer. But it does mean she's stupid. I strongly believe that anticonception can fail, but that chance is small. The pill is for 98% safe, if accidents happen, they mostly are the result of bad using. Medicins/diarrhea/throwing up/don't take the pill properly can result in less safety, which can result in pregnancy. There's a tiny paper included in every box of pills (and other medicines), which you really should read. The pill (if she used it) can fail, but because OP is still a young teenager, my guess is that she didn't take the pill like she should, and that it therefore is her fault. Just a guess. And condoms alone aren't safe, we all know that. (Oh and 15, that really doesn't matter)
I had my daughter when I was 17... the babies don't always think the world of you... don't always love you... and def don't always appreciate everything you do for them... don't get me wrong, I love my kids so very much... just wish I were older when I had them. my daughter is 18 now & graduating this year. no drugs, no babies, good head on her shoulders & continuing her education <3
that's the problem, your child shouldn't be your best friend. you are his MOTHER not his FRIEND. You are there to guide him and make sure he's safe. And to try an make sure he doesn't make the same mistake you did. Having a baby is not a game, they are not toys. You should be a mature and responsible adult before you have kids.
There are grown adults out there that I know who shouldn't be having kids. I have friends who are teen mothers who are better then some of todays adult mothers, I'm 17 and had my daughter almost 4 months ago. Shit happens, it is OP own fault, but she human, she makes mistakes like EVERYONE else.
That's exactly the point n you hit it spot on. My mother said she was not just my mother, but also my friend. Look how I turned out. I smoke, did drugs, and she still doesn't know I'm bisexual because he believes it a sin. She also had me at a young age & is a terrible role model(: I cannot be blamed mostly.
Sure sure u turned out fine but really u shoodnt b having sex in the first place it's a sin. And saying it's ok is just encouraging kids to do it and fuck up their lives. Do u reely want a 12 yr old going through this? Or if she kills the baby do u reely want a life to die because someone did something they shoodnt have in the first place? If ur not married don't have sex. If u do ur just asking for a baby. Oh and if u think u love eachother sure u might and sure u might even get married but y not just wait til then. Get some patience And keep ur parts in ur pants.
Also, abortion, problem solved. Maybe you can get one for your Birthday?
Why should the girl kill her baby because she made the mistake of having unprotected sex? It's not fair to punish the baby for the OP's lack of common sense. If she isn't ready to be a mother she should give the baby up for adoption so they can have a chance with a family who wants them.
kids do the darndest things. is protection a dirty word or something now a days? just be lucky you did not get AIDS. might want to get tested for that also though.
