Hi im 17 years old, me and my boyfriend have been trying to have a baby.
i had my period 10 days late but it was not a normal period, it lasted me 4 days but it wasnt how it always has been, ive been feeling light headed, my head aches have increased i haven't had so many, i feel like vomiting, especially after i eat, also i dont eat as much lately, and yesterday i stated feeling sick i have a sore throat and my voice has changed because of it, but ive been feeling like this after the first week, and yesterday was when i started feeling as if i had a flu. also my boyfriend has bees not been feeling well he gets head aches he at times vomits, and he has been having sweet cravings.

Hi katelyn,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  If this is something you are definitely sure about, you should seek medical care before trying to conceive a child.  Especially being so young.  If you and your boyfriend are having all these symptoms, they might be due to a flu.  You might want to take a pregnancy test or see a doctor.

Here are some resources for you
