So. It's been 8 months since my last time I had sex. I did it yesterday with my boyfriend. It's always protected.

But I have slight discomfort in my abdomen and a brownish or sometimes pinkish discharge. I'm freaking out that I'm pregnant. Is this even normal? At all?

Maybe he tore something, went too deep, too rough?

Or could this be urinary tract infection an I'm just getting too paranoid?

You would not be experiencing any symptoms of pregnancy the day after a risk.

The spotting could be because of the intercourse - maybe things were a little rough? - or maybe you are about to start your period. Or maybe you're just having some spotting, which can sometimes happen for no discernible reason.

We cannot tell you where the pain is from. If it becomees uncomfortable and/or continues for a couple of days, it would not be a bad idea to have it checked out.

Okay, I have a question.

If my cervix was hit at all, would that cause some possible discomfort after?

And if there was a tear in my skin in the inside, or if it just got rubbed raw or anything, would it still be bleeding? And is my body maybe trying to heal it?

Usually, when your cervix gets bumped, it hurts during and tend to feel sore for a little while after, yes.

But a pinkish discharge that keeps showing up, and recurring abdominal pain, are both things I'd suggest checking into with a sexual healthcare provider, especially if you and your partner aren't both up-to-date with your STI testing.

If the sex was too "rough" after an absence of sex, would that cause the soreness for a little while longer?

My sister had cysts on her ovaries. I'm wondering if I might have those, my mother is going to try to get me to see a doctor.

I'm not sure what you mean by rough after an absence of sex. Not having engaged in sex for a while, then having sex that's aggressive doesn't really make a difference. If any kind of sex we have is too aggressive, it's too aggressive, regardless of when we've engaged in sex previously (or not).

We can't tell you if you have ovarian cysts or not, obviously, but what we can say is that regular, preventative sexual healthcare, including a bimanual exam, pap smear and STI tests is important for everyone, even when we're feeling just fine, and particularly once we've started engaging in genital sex with partners. That's all something you will usually want to arrange yearly, more or less often than that if your healthcare provider suggests differently.

So any sex can cause a pain that lasts a few days?

Yes, I have scheduled an appointment with a local clinic

Well, sex shouldn't cause pain afterwards in general, no, if you were not hurt at all during.
