Response from Mr. Kull

If you live within the United States, you can try locating a Planned Parenthood clinic nearest you (visit their website, If there is an adult that you can trust or confide in, try approaching him/her with your dilemma.

It is difficult to say what you can generally do in a situation like yours, because where you live in the world can have a great impact on your ability to access healthcare.
