Am not pregnant, right?

I'm 17 and had unprotected sex in May. I had my period in May a few days later, and my period June (though it was early) I also had it this month (on the same day as the last one), but am still very worried. I've had constipation for quite some time and am now drinking green tea and taking probiotics, I'm worried like hell because I'm nauseous and have some pain all over the tummy and feel bloated. Please tell me I'm not pregnant!!

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to us. You are not pregnant. Having a period following unprotected intercourse proves you did not conceive.

However, I am concerned that you have been constipated for quite some time, coping with nausea, having abdominal pain and feeling bloated. Please contact your physician.

These symptoms are associated with irritable bowel syndrome, in addition to constipation.

Is it 100% I'm not pregnant? No need for a test?

Is irritable bowel syndrome a serious condition?

Hello babqga,

No need for a test. Yes, 100% sure that you are not pregnant.

Irritable bowel syndrome is a common disorder that affects the large intestine (colon). Irritable bowel syndrome commonly causes cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, diarrhea and constipation. IBS is a chronic condition that you will need to manage long term.

Thank you for the fast answers. I realise how stupid and uneducated the question sounds, I'm a bit of a hypochondriac and am very good at convincing myself. And the more I look it up on the internet the more I get convinced. I didn't know what to do to put my mind at ease, re-reading your answers give me a rest for a while :/
