Hey... First of all my girlfriend has been on the pill for about a year now. And about 7 days ago we had unprotected sex. She told me she missed a pill in her last cycle. She now gets like stomach pains, has been feeling tired a lot, and is hungry late at night. Is there anyway she could be pregnant? I'm really worried... Thanks for the support
btw I know I really messed up by having unprotected sex.. I will never do it again..

It is very unlikely that your girlfriend would have any symptoms caused by pregnancy this early. The sysmptoms are most probably normal bodily symptoms magnified by pregnancy anxiety. And you both have a reason to be anxious as you have a small but real pregnancy risk. Unfortunately, it is now too late for emergency contraception. The best advice we could give you would be for her to take a pregnancy test 14 days after the pregnancy risk and no sex in the interim. Most likely, the test will be negative and you both can relax.

Honestly you can't rely on pregnancy symptoms at all (unless it's something like a missed period) because it could be anything. The only way you can find out if your girlfriend is pregnant is if you take a pregnancy test. Every woman is different and experiences different pregnancy symptoms at different times, so it really varies from person to person. Some women don't experience any symptoms at all.
