Sex risks: It is really important to learn about how one can become pregnant - before electing to be sexually active. If you are going to have sex as a teenager, make sure it is safe.

See below: If you are pregnant it is not from the dry sperm. Repeat the home pregnancy test in 4-5 days, unless you get a period by then. If you want to sort the issue sooner, see your doctor to get a blood test for HCG level. Get HPV vaccine. Go on contraceptive before you get in a situation where you may have sex. If you do, have safe sex. Wish you good health!
