At 17 you are still a minor and your parents responsibility and they are financially obligated to support you. What your state can provide depends on where you live but this what some of our contributers wrote:

You can call the Salvation Army, Planned Parenthood, United Way, in your area. All will counsel you in your options. There are state agencies that will give you assistance in finding a place to live, medical care, and your other needs. Call the Health Services of your city or county.

You can get WIC, food Stamps and any other kind of government assistance you need. You might be able to, since you are a struggling mother, to get an apartment at your age as long as your working and can pay rent.

Contact the Department of Family Services (sometimes referred to as state social services, DFCS, etc.) in your city or county of residence.They will make an appointment with you to apply for medicaid, assistance in finding living facilities, WWIC, and other applicable aid. State and nonprofit agencies often work jointly to supply cash grants, assist the mother in finishing high school and/or furthering her education, find gainful employment, parenting classes, subsidized child care and so forth.

If you and your child are in danger contact the social workers so they can get you another place to stay. If you want to get emancipated you have to go to court.

Yes. If he's 18, he'll go to jail for even touching you in the first place (some places 17 gets you jail time too). Forget the whole pregnant thing for a minute. There are no laws about getting pregnant. Seeing as you need to have sex to get pregnant. Also in most places you have to be over 17 or 18 to even legally agree to sex in the first place, so it'd be a crime on your part as well? Either way, he'd most likely go to jail anyway so yeah.

Only if the 17 year olds parents want to press charges..

If you happen to be 17 years of age, pregnant, and if your parents are physically hurting you, you need to go to your local police department, and file a complaint. Since you're only 17, the police will turn the matter to the Department of Human Services, and they will do an official investigation. If the investigation finds you are in some sort of danger, or in a serious situation, then they can place you in a foster home.

No, usually they do not let you donate if you are pregnant. The place I go, they ask if you a series of 13 questions every time you come in, and if you have been pregnant, you will get deferred.

Go on a diet or just don't get pregnant in the first place

She can get arrested for having illegal sex with an under-aged person, so, its best if you wait until the 17 yr. old turns 18

No, when a mammal is pregnant it will not go into heat while it is pregnant.

you cant get pregnant on your period. the whole "impregnation" takes place when you have an egg. but when you get your period, it lets the egg go and so there is no egg to fertilize.

User Avatar

It goes to the usual place, but there is no egg ready and waiting there to be fertilized by it. Ovulation stops when you are pregnant. That's why you don't have your period.

If the guy is 18 and over and the girl or parents report it to police, yes. But I believe with bail. 17 & younger, no. It's not illegal.
