I am 23 years old and have been on birth control pills for nearly two years. My boyfriend and I also ALWAYS use condoms every time we have sex. This past Sunday we had sex, then Monday I began feeling some nausea and slight cramping which has been going on for the past three days. We use two forms of birth control (pill and condom), we had sex the very first day after my period so I wouldn't even be ovulating, and he did not even ejacuate. I realize this is as safe as it gets. Could I be feeling this way because I'm possibly pregnant. Are feelings like this normal or am I just being paranoid and stressed out over this? This is also only the second time I have ever had sex.
Thank You

We're in the middle of norovirus season. Ten bucks says you got hit by a bug that popped up at just the right time to get you worried.

Correct pill usage and use of a condom leaves virtually no risk of pregnancy. So, take care of yourself, and let your first step be to stop worrying. :)

(Just a minor BTW -- you don't ovulate on the pill, that's its primary mechanism of preventing pregnancy. Every single day is just as "safe" as any other as the pills are taken correctly.)

Wow, I'm impressed at just how safe you are!
If you've taken the Pill correctly AND he used a condom AND he didn't ejaclate, the chance you could be pregnant is so miniscule its not worth thinking about.

If you're nervous about it, then this can lead to nausea, and given the time of year most of us are feeling pretty rotten!

If you're still worrying about it, get a pregnancy test [accurate after 10-14 days after sex]: trust me, the feeling of relief from a negative test it amazing!

Good luck, and stop worrying! [Smile]

How long ago did the risk took place ? If it's been less than 120 hours, then you still have time to go take EC if you do not wish to become pregnant. You did have a viable pregnancy risk from this unprotected sex.

If more time than that has passed, then you'll have to wait 10-14 days to take a pregnancy risk. That's the only way to determine whether or not you're pregnant.

The unprotected sex also put you and your partner at risk of STIs so if you haven't been tested twice 6 months apart, were not STIs free or haven't remained monogamous since, then you might want to schedule an appointment to get tested a few months from now.
