I had sex saturday with my boyfriend and it was our first time.At first he put is finger in my vagina to find the "hole",and things led on and it hurt and he also "popped my cherry".
I take birth control pills and we used a condom and im sure he put it on correctly.
but the day of i took my pills it kind of burned in my stomach, and sunday and monday same thing.
im pretty sure im not pregnant because i made him check the condom and it wasn't ripped and im also taking birth control.
but what's with the buring feeling?

A burning sensation in your stomach is not a sign of pregnancy. I doubt there's a connection between this burning feeling and your having sex at all. If it shows up again, you might want to talk to your doctor about it.

And just so you know: there are no cherries, or any other fruit, in the vagina. Having intercourse, or any sort of vaginal entry, does not involve "popping" anything. Usually, when people talk about "popping the cherry" they're using a common euphemism to say that they think they broke the hymen (which we now call the corona). However, that's a myth: the corona does not break with first-time vaginal entry. It's a very thin membrane that wears away over time, due to a whole host of other factors besides vaginal entry, such as hormone changes or menstruation. If you experienced pain and/or bleeding it wasn't due to your corona "breaking". Rather, it was likely due to you not being aroused enough, to not using enough lube, or to your partner not being gentle enough.

Why don't you take a look at these articles together:
