Alas, we're not psychic. (I so wish we were.)

Having some pain in your stomach could be anything from PMS to gas, gallstones to a flu. You also reported these same feelings the last time you were scared about pregnancy and lo, you weren't pregnant. So, it seems highly possible this is a typical PMS symptom for you.

The only way we can tell if someone is pregnant is if they have taken a pregnancy test and gotten a positive result.

There's nothing stupid about being worried about an unwanted consequence of anything. But since you're so worried, it might be a good idea to reevaluate if sex with a partner is the right thing for you right now or, if you feel it is, think about adding a second method of contraception to your roster.
