Q: 

I had sex for the first time two weeks ago (3 times in total now), we used a condom, around now I'm due my period, since last week I have felt bloated (usually get this before my period)but am unsure whats normal. Do periods change after loss of virginity

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for your post.

Your menstrual cycle is mostly under hormonal control. Other things can affect these hormones, though. Physical or emotional stress, weight loss or gain, strenuous exercise, are some of the most common things that can affect regularity. The act of having vaginal sex should not really affect the regularity of your cycle, but because you are sexually active (now), things like pregnancy and infection are reasons to consider any possible changes. It's good you are using condoms. They are very effective in preventing pregnancy as well as STD's.
