Hi mitchel,

You might need to see your doctor and explain what you feel.  He might suggest having imaging test done, to know what can be causing it.  Sometime, constipation or bloating can also make you feel like this.

Best,

Daisy

Hi mitchel,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  You can not get pregnant, if your boyfriend fingered you.  In order for pregnancy to occur, there has to be penetration or in rare cases ejaculation on the vaginal opening. It's important to use protection such as a condom or birth control pills.  In order to avoid an unwanted pregnancy.

Best,

Daisy
