    While your at the doctor, talk to them about contraception.

    Also it would be a good idea to get to 'know' your body/period cycle.
    The average cycle length is 28-32 days (day 1 being the first day you bleed). You usually ovulate 14 days before your period arrives.
    That's a good point. There are lots of apps on the App Store you can download to help you track your cycles and learn more about your fertility. Free Menstrual Calendar or FMC is pretty good - it doesn't have the fancy graphics that others do but it's reliable and has useful tips in it.

    She came from a wealthy upperclass family (so she was educated, had family that looked out for her etc. She just hung around the wrong crowds)

    Im not suggesting OP Parties or drinks or from what type of background, but any situation is possible.

    I'm sorry, but I don't buy the "I didn't know until I gave birth" scenario. A pregnant belly is vastly different to a fat one. Even if you're young and uninformed, someone around you would notice and say something.

    Also, if you had, or assumed you had, stomach ulcers, I'm sure a doctor would have been involved at some stage???

    Some young women wouldn't if it was due to drinking, drugs etc. Maybe not wanting to feel humiliated??

    You can choose not to "buy it" as much as you like but it happens.
    A pregnant belly can be completely hidden under a 150-160 kg body (which was the size of the woman I knew who gave birth without knowing) she was rushed to hospital in an ambulance under suspicion of poisoning because of the stomach cramps with her husband chasing in the car behind.
    Have birth to a boy that night. Had no need or desire to hide it or pretend it wasn't happening. Had been trying for a decade.

    The reason I didn't bother with a test until now is because I got my period shortly after sex and have had it many times since...sorry if I come across as stupid to some of you, then.

    Thanks to those who have replied kindly.

    Sorry it got a bit mean in here. Happens sometimes on forums :-/
    Good luck with it and perhaps pop in to see your GP.

    Well the pill is 99% effective if taken properly.
    Then he didn't come in you, so in that 1% you've probably at least halved it again to 0.5%. Then there's the fact you've had periods since and aren't obviously pregnant looking. So I would say maybe 0.02% of a chance? Rough guess .

    If your belly is super hard then it's more likely. If it's squishy then you're probably not pregnant.

    Look at the question she asked..... how nice can we be..

    This whole thing is stupid. What she is suggesting is practically impossible. Does she want us to lie to her? What does she want to hear?

    He didn't ejaculate in me but I think I'm pregnant.... seriously???

    Not meaning to be offensive, but are you implying that feeling humiliated is an excuse for the understanding of basic physiology?

    I'm genuinely happy that this person you knew was able to have their longed for child, but I'm sorry. I sincerely find it hard to believe that someone who had been TTC - for a decade - was not able to know that they were pregnant.
