What a tough situation. I hope your test is positive and hers isn’t.

@mrstea83:  Has she taken a pregnancy test? Try not to get too upset before you even know for sure if she is pregnant / if she is – if she will keep the baby. Hugs!

Would she get an abortion? 15 is just way too young to be pregnant and have a baby, so if she is hopefully she considers that. But hopefully she’s not. What about suggesting a different BC method to her like Nuva Ring? Then she doesn’t have to remember something every day.

@mrstea83:  Hopefully she’s not pregnant, but if she is…you should consider taking her to planned parenthood. If she’s really early on (which I’m assuming she is) she can just take a pill and be done with it. She is WAYYYY too young for this and it would make her life excruciatingly hard. I also suggest she gets a different form of birth control. Mirena would be great for her because it’ll last 5 years and she won’t have to worry about it since she is having trouble with the pill

 

ETA: I’m pretty sure most states will give her an abortion pill without parental consent but I’m not totally positive..planned parenthood could answer that question. Try to put aside your own feelings on abortion and think about what’s best for your little sis.

awful situation. hopefully she isn’t. keep us updated!

 

ETA: if she isn’t, i would also try to convince her to get on nuvaring or implanon if she can’t remember to take a pill

@mrstea83:  oh, because a lifetime of responsibility is what keeps any teenage guy coming back for more. Great idea.

Has she seen a doctor yet or taken a hpt, like a FRER or clear blue, so that she knows what’s going on? 15 is very young to be pregnant. And sure, it’s really hard to imagine that when you are trying so hard to be pregnant yourself. I hope that she is not pregnant, for her sake. But nobody knows for sure yet, right? I think she just needs some support right now.

@mrstea83:  I would still encourage her to get some counselling. She needs your support, not judgement. There is nothing abut this baby that should be seen as shameful. Let’s not pretend that the vast majority of us didn’t have pre-marital sex. She just got unlucky, even if it was due to her lackadaisical attitude to birth control.

I would also encourage her to consider an alternate form of birth control should by some miracle she not be pregnant, or for future needs after the baby is born.
