Hey, I had sex with my bf unprotected(dumb) 3 days before my period but then got it. And then 3days after my period had anal sex and he had cummed but I saw it come out, but im scared it could have possibly leaked. Now, its a week later and I feel really crampy in my pelvic area and sharp pain in my back. Could I be pregnant??? Help, I am so stressed

Unprotected anal sex can cause a pregnancy risk from ejaculate leaking out. So, yes, you have had a risk.

It's too late to take EC, so you will want to wait until you can take a pregnancy test. The earliest you can take one is about 2 weeks after the risk.

Can we help you figure out your options for birth control, so you can be better prepared next time?

Its been 3 weeks since the first time since vaginally and a week since anal. Should I take one around now?

It really depends. If you want to account for both potential risks, you'll want to wait another week.

If you're okay with possibly needing to take two tests, you can certainly find out if pregnancy occurred from the vaginal intercourse now, though it sounds like you already have the answer to that one if you had a normal period afterward.

You will also want to make sure to schedule an STI screening in the next month if you're not already up-to-date with those since you've had two different kinds of sex that carry high risk of STIs unprotected with this person now.

Its weird though, I have tender breast, dark veins around them, cramping,headache,back pains, and nausea. But my period should be here in a week and 3 days. Could it be my period?

If your last risk was only a week ago, you can be sure that what you are experiencing now are not signs of a pregnancy. It takes about a week for fertilization to happen, so you'd barely be pregnant at this point. The first symptoms do not appear this early.

If your period is over a week away, I'd also not suspect a connection there. But most of what you describe (headache, back pain, nausea) could be a cold or flu - it is the season for that, after all. You may also just be psyching yourself out if you are looking for signs of a pregnancy.

Really, your best bet is to do as Heather said: schedule an STI screening, and wait until you can take a pregnancy test.

Well I took a test today and it came out negative, but I'm not sire why I have these symptoms. I'm going to take another one in a week. Could it have possibly been wrong?

As Joey said, those can be symptoms of a LOT of things. The first sign of pregnancy you'd have really is a missed period. But yes, test again in a week and that should be accurate for your most recent risk as well.

It's pretty common for very light-skinned people to have visible veins.

Changes are you're being hyper-observant of your body because you're freaking: people do that all the time.

If your negative results from your HPTs aren't comforting you, your best bet would be to see a healthcare provider in person and ask them to test for you, okay?

Great. Like I said earlier, you're going to want to get those STI tests anyway, since that is just as big of a deal with your health as a pregnancy. So, I'd just schedule that appointment and they can do another pregnancy test right at the same time, with urine you will already be giving them for some of your STI testing.
