I'm 17-years-old and I had intercourse for the very first time today with my boyfriend...and yes, we did used a condom. Now, about 3 hours after we had sex, I feel gassy, a crampy and a little bloated. The gass is actually very painful at times. Is this normal? As for my cycle, incase thats what is causing my discomfort, its about 32 or 33 days and I'm on day 25 or 26.
Please help.

Hi, I'll set a my nickname as Wendy, me and my partner wanted to try something and that is he will enter his penis inside of me, since both of us are still virgin, it can't fit in well, and also it is unprotected, but it seems like the only thing that enter is the tip of his penis, both of us are scared so he immediately pull it out, the next day I feel a little bloated so I overthink what if I'm pregnant, I also fart a lot, and the next day, I feel like I can feel a little bit of nausea and a little cramps, am I pregnant or just I'm overthinking things?

For all intents and purposes, there is a risk of pregnancy when a woman has unprotected sexual intercourse with ejaculation that enters the vagina. So, unless this happened, you are overthinking. :)

Just be aware that what you are doing is not safe sex practice, as accidents can easily happen. Using a condom can take a lot of stress out the situation for you.

It was my first time last Monday, May 22 to have sex. I was a virgin that time. My guy fingered me until I bled. Then afterwards, we had protected sex (he used a condom but he took it off whenever he doesn't penetrate me). When he got into me, I made him stop penetrating because it was too rough. We both laid in bed and I gave him a blowjob but he didn't cum. All throughout the activity he didn't. He just made himself cum after penetration (for less than 3 minutes both front and back). The day after I felt some cramps in my abdomen and on the sides. I burp a lot and feel bloated. I feel my breasts got bigger too. I felt that it was kinda weird and I still feel it now. Am I pregnant? I searched about the early signs of pregnancy but I haven't related to any of it. I even consulted my friend and she said that the early signs of pregnancy her doctor advised to her are headaches and sensitivity to smell. But I haven't had those. Everyday I sleep late and sometimes skip meals or even eat at a late hour (let's say 9-10pm for dinner which is past dinner time) Help I'm very stressed about it. Thank you.

Hello Anonymous,

Yes, if you have unprotected vaginal intercourse.
