Pregnancy or just indigestion?

By Anonymous October 8, 2017 - 5:28pm

2 weeks ago (30 Oct), I went on a camping trip with a Friend. Things happened, and we ended up sleeping together. We used a condom and he pulled out just in case, but we realised after the fact that the condom had broken. This was around the time I was ovulating.

We didn't have access to emergency contraception, and were hoping that the pull out worked. However every day since that night, I've been experiencing nonstop light cramps in my stomach, abdomen, and lower back. I've also felt a lot more gassy.

My period is due in a few days, and Im experiencing all my usual symptoms (increased discharge, slight bloating, increased appetite). I'm wondering if it's worth taking a pregnancy test. I had been eating camp food so I'm wondering if it could just be indigestion?

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

You would not be having digestive discomfort from camp food two weeks after eating it. All you can do it wait for your period - you don't have long to wait. If you don;t get your period in a few days, take a test.
