hi. im 17 and im on my second pack of the Pill and i lost my virginity to my boyfriend two days ago. we didnt use a condom because we ve talked about STDs and pregnancy was covered with the Pill. i also gave him multiple blow jobs..and he went down on me. and now im getting really bad lower abdomen pain..and im getting nervous about STDs and pregnancy. i just want to know what is "normal" after sex. am i supposed to see any changes? or physical differences? should i see a gynocologist now? or wait? im just really confused! id appreciate it if you could help me!!
There'd be no harm in seeing a gynecologist and asking for a full STD screen, as it's something ALL sexually active women should do regularily.
After you first have sex the effects you'll experience will be mostly emotional. You might feel happy, nervous, underwhelmed; any number of things, but symptoms of STDs and pregnancy do not tend to show up immediately. Chances are you're worried, and that's what's causing you to feel ill. So, call up a gyn or sexual health clinic (look up Planned Parenthood or Clinics in your phonebook), consider using condoms if just for peace of mind, and relax, because when you're taking care of your health (and his) you're doing the right thing.

Just a reminder: talking about STDs and STIs offers NO STD or STI protection. talking is what you do before you start using safer sex practices, if you do not wish to transmit or contract infection or disease.
Secondly, being sexually active does not cause any physical changes to your body unless you become pregnant or transmit or contract infection or disease.
