Tests are accurate: Home pregnancy tests in the US are amazingly accurate. It does not sound like you are pregnant. At age 18, I recommend that you focus on school and/or a career right now. Make sure that you have had all 3 of your HPV vaccines. These do not protect against all forms of HPV, but they do protect you from the ones most likely to cause cervical cancer and warts. Use condoms to protect yourself.
