I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend when I lost my virginity, but he pulled out. We had sex twice more a week after. I've been feeling bloatedbut not swollen. Its really worrying me. Could I be pregnant?

Hello Anonymous,

The only way to know if you are pregnant is first, your period is late by at least seven day, and second, you take a home pregnancy test.

hi, I had sex for th first time on Monday 26,2014 ever since then I have been feeling very bloated, gassy, and dizzy with a bad headache. is this normal. my sex was protected and I had checked more then once to make sure that the condom was still there and to make sure that nothing was wrong with it before and when he had it on. Are the few things I mentioned before about being bloated, gassy, dizzy and a headache normal after having sex for the first time ?

So I had sex on Friday the 23 this month (may) it's been 3 days and I've been having the same symptoms such as bloating ,bubbling in my stomach and I've been really gasy, we used protection bit I'm scared that it broke. I haven't been able to poop at all and I'm worried that I might be pregnant.

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post! 

Pregnancy takes over five days to happen after sex and longer than that to have pregnancy symptoms. Condom breakage is not common. Your symptoms are more likely due to a digestive complaint or even stress from worrying that you may be pregnant. Eat a lot of fiber and prune juice in order to stop the constipation.

I have experienced the extreme bloating after sex multiple times. I have noticed that it doesn't matter if I have an orgasm or not, it just happens sometimes. I've also discovered certain positions make it worse, as if it pushes air into me, causing the excruciating bloating feeling afterward. Today I experienced the worst yet. After my boyfriend and I had sex, the bloating feeling started and it got worse and more painful by the second. Like extremely unbearable pain to where I didn't know what to do and just wanted to DIE! I ran to the bathroom and sat on the toilet trying to poop or something to release whatever was building up inside. It was so hard to do so, and I suddenly started experiencing an intense heat flash and light-headedness with vomiting. My boyfriend did not know what to do and was worried. I ended up throwing up and pooping at the same time, all the while with heat flash, pale face, light-headedness and bloating pain. Overall, it all lasted for like 10 minutes.. 10 minutes of the most unbearable pain I've ever experienced! I called my mom and told her about it and she couldn't relate at all. I do have trouble pooping often and sometimes just can't go at all. I wonder if these two things are related.
