    A while ago I lost my virginity, we never used protection. I know terrible decision and we agreed not to do it anymore till we can be more responsible. The thing is now I'm petrified that I may be pregnant. Theres no way I could get my hands on a pregnancy test. Can you please give me symptoms and round about times that I may get them? also if I am pregnant, and Im against abortion but I may have too, are there programs things I could do about it without people finding out?

    Home pregnancy tests can be found in most drug stores, Walmarts and even grocery stores (in the medicine aisle).

    HIPAA rules require that physicians/medical personnel who perform procedures like abortions respect the patients privacy regarding these matters.

    Before you plan one though, you need to find out if you are pregnant first.
