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.

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.

Usually when you stress yourself out over being pregnant your body's hormones changing. Sometimes it throws your period off when you have sex.
