My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex and he came inside me 2 times, I'm on my period at the time and birth control! The next day I'm feeling Bloated and gassy, I took a home pregnancy test while still on my period and got "not pregnant". I'm just worried is all and if my chances of getting pregnant are yes or no?

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post! 

A pregnancy test cannot be accurate for 10-14 days after sex because it takes over 5 days from having sex to actually get pregnant. 

If you are on the Pill, I am not sure why you are concerned about pregnancy. 

Your gas and bloating is likely connected to your digestive system. 

Your risk of pregnancy is about 1% so you have nothing really to worry about.
