Help, oh help, I think I am pregnant and I don't want another baby.

I am a single parent of 2 under five, and my period is a week late.

I know, I KNOW, that I do not want another baby. I did have intercourse 2 or 3 weeks ago, using a condom.

Please can anyone suggest what to do?

I did a PG test yesterday and it came up negative, but last time this happened I was pregnant, just didn't show on the test.

How do I get this sorted out? I really cannot have another baby.

Is there an early pregnancy unit near you?

They should be able to help?

It will be OK.

Doing something always better than worrying IME. Hope its OK.

You are right.

I will ring the epu tomorrow - can I do that or do I have to go through my doctor?

if you used a condom and have had a negetive test, then hopefully you are not pregnant - you would be unlucky if you are.

I would wait another few days then test again.

I think my brain is fooling me into pregnancy syndromes - I am tired and keep getting pins and needles in my hands.

Maybe AF just needs a little coaxing. Listen to some relaxing music, eat a fat bar of chocolate, have some wine if you have any in the house, and go to sleep early. I hope nature sorts it out for you

Condoms only about 50-60% effective not good as a means of contraception sorry

belgo Thu 23-Aug-07 19:50:37

macdoddle - can you reference that satistic please. If used correctly, I believe condoms to be in the region of 98% effective.

belgo Thu 23-Aug-07 19:55:36

of course though you have to rely on the man to use the condom correctly for the condom to be reliable.

JodieG1 Thu 23-Aug-07 19:55:39

I thought condoms were around 98% effective as well.

JodieG1 Thu 23-Aug-07 19:56:59

Putting condoms on isn't hard (excuse the pun ) but if you don't trust your partner then put them on for him, though I fail to see why you'd be having sex with someone at all if you feared they couldn't put a condom on correctly.

tahnk you little lapin

I'm hoping condoms have 98% effectiveness since that's my mode of choice.

Don't think an EPU will be able to do anything in terms of reassuring you atm to be honest - better to wait another couple of days and test again. A scan may not find anything at this stage anyway.

Fingers crossed for you.

Good link, knew it wasn't 60%.

I am pretty sure you are worrying about nothing. A condom plus a negative test really means that it is very unlikely you are pregnant.

lilQuidditchKel Thu 23-Aug-07 20:19:22

I'm telling you, have the chocolate and some wine. Trust me.

(went through this when I was 17 and oh man did I panic)

seriously just wishing you the best luck in the world.

the condom was intact, as far as I could tell. It didn't come off or anything. I still haven't come one yet and I am getting really frightened ... worth buying another test yet, do you think?

You are worrying, which might be delaying af.

Wear a white skirt or something, and it's bound to appear.
