Okay so hi I wanted to ask something about periods again. So about 14 days ago, my boyfriend and I dry-humped for the first time. I stopped him after about 10 seconds because I'm not ready for that, luckily he understands. But since then I've had such a fear of becoming pregnant, and I've been majorly stressed out. Then I found this webstie, thank heavens, and I found out that there is no risk of becoming pregnant with any clothes on.
Now, I'm due to have my period in the next 2/3 days, I'm pretty irregular so I'm not sure. But the streange thing is, I've been having unbelievably heavy pms symptoms - breasts hurting, urinating, I'm tired the whole time, and I have cramps - which I'm not used to having. I was just wondering is PMS symptoms could be made heavier by so much stress? Obviously these symptoms are making me stress about pregnancy again, I'm thinking about 'what ifs' the whole time even though I know there's no risk. Please help, I'm busy with my finals and it's having such an influence on me, I'm really freaked out.

The symptoms of PMS can definitely vary from period to period, so I'd say you don't need to be worried. It could be that stress is playing a role (it does, as Robin mentioned in a previous post, have an effect on your hormones).
So, deep breath, push those "what ifs" out of your head, and focus on the facts that you found here (and good luck with your finals).
