I havent worn my clear retainer in two weeks and now half of the retainer doesnt fit. Should I still wear it with the hope of it moving my teeth back?

In brief: Retainer doesn't fit

Bring your retainer with you to the Orthodontist who fabricated it for you.
He\she will determine whether or not it should be adjusted, worn or remade.

In brief: Retainer

it sounds like your teeth have shifted.
You should see your orthodontist and get a new retainer made ASAP to prevent any more tooth movement.

In brief: So sad

Do not wear retainer until you are reevaluated, can do more harm than good.
Immediately call your treating Dentist or Orthodontic Specialist. You may need to have retainer adjusted or remade, or you may need retreatment. Important that you be seen ASAP.

In brief: See an orthodontist

He/she might be able to adjust the retainer so it can fit again properly.
Good luck.

In brief: Tooth movement

If your retainer doesn't fit correctly, you may be doing more harm than good in trying to force it into place.
Let your orthodontist take a look.
