Abdominal aches for 2 weeks after having sex

My boyfriend and I had sex for the first time on March 19. He used a condom, but didn't pull out. I never saw the condom after we had sex but he promises that he had it on correctly and it didn't break. Most people i've talked to have said that i'm not pregnant, because he had a condom on and they're meant to hold ejaculate. Since we've had sex, i've had a constant lower abdominal cramp, almost like an ache or a period cramp. I haven't experienced any other symptoms of pregnancy, but I also haven't taken a test. I'm due for my period on april 8th, about a week from now. I'm absolutely terrified. Am I pregnant? Would I even be feeling any symptoms at all this early if I WAS pregnant? Is it possible for me to be making all of this up in my head due to stress? I think about it nonstop and am stressing over it constantly. Please please help.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. I am glad you reached out to our community.

I doubt that you became pregnant because your boyfriend wore a condom and it did not fail. Secondly, it would be too early to be experiencing any early signs of pregnancy, if it did happen.

I think over stressing and anxiety are the more likely reasons you are having abdominal pain.

Please try very hard to stop thinking about this and do your best to relax. Stress will only cause a delay in the start of your period. If it might help, take an early response pregnancy test around April 3 or 4. Test in the morning. Use the urine when you wake up and first use the bathroom. Seeing the test result might put your mind at ease.
