I recently had sex with a guy about three weeks ago. It was right after my period ended. I am on BC (Yasmin) and we also used condoms. The first condom we used ended up breaking, but he did not ejaculate in me. We stopped then used another condom. The only times he fully came in me, he was wearing a condom.

I take my pill perfectly, on that night I took it about an hour later than usual. About two weeks after having sex, my breasts were a little bit tender, kinda sore but not really. From the first time we had sex that weekend, I have had this feeling in my lower abdomen, kind of this pain that moves around, and right above my pelvic bone I have this "icy hot" burning sensation. I went to the medical center at school and they said everything was fine. One day there was pretty sharp pain on both sides around my ovaries. So basically I am wondering if I am stressing about pregnancy for no reason, or if I have a reason to worry. Since there were no problems with my bladder or anything like that, I am really really stressed out about possibly being pregnant.

I know it would be highly unlikely to be pregnant, being on the pill and using a condom. But I am a worrier, and maybe pre-cum could have gotten in?

The gassy, bloating sensation kinda of moves around my lower abdomen, but that feeling right above my pubic bone worries me. My breasts are kind of sore, but I am hoping to get my period on Sunday, so that could be why also. Help! I am kinda freaking out.

You're right, it would be highly unlikely to be pregnant from what you describe. Even if you hadn't used a condom, the pill protects you from pregnancy.

Taking the pill one hour late won't affect its effectiveness. You've got up to 12 hours to take before it's considered missed, but obviously, around the same time each day is ideal.

The pains and feelings you've been getting are likely unrelated, and if they people at the medical center said everything was fine I'm sure it's nothing to worry about. If it continues for a few more days, you can go back to see them though.
