Im a 16 year old girl who had a one night stand about 4 months ago, stupidly without using a condom but i am on the pill. Can you be pregnant and still have regular periods? I have heard stories that you can and i am seriously stressing. Please help!!!! :(

Hi All You Teen Writers!

Sjoe!! I know I have been neglecting you, but I am running around like crazy! I have opened two new practices:
Rooms in JhB: Intercare Health Centre, Room 4, Fourways Blvd & Short Street, Fourways - (011) 745 6725 and
Rooms in Umhlanga,KzN: The Square Medical Centre, 250 Umhlanga Rocks Drive, Umhlanga - (031) 566 7000.
It seems that a lot of people need a bit of help to cope with day to day activities. So if your problem keeps on coming back and you need one on one therapy - you can make an appointment with my secretary and we can sort out your problem with a bit of counselling.

Hi Scared

This is guilt speaking up! After 4 months you would definitely know if you were pregnant. Breast tenderness, boy changes, period skipping. So stop worrying - and please be careful next time. Remember STIs/HIV - you have to use a condom even if you are on the pill.
