So I had sex (protected, but it came off - he didn't ejaculate) and I got my period on the 20th. It was a full seven days, very normal. But now I feel extremely bloated in my stomach, like it's growing? And my lower back hurts... a lot. What is wrong? Could I be pregnant if I already had my period?

It is not possible to have a period and be pregnant. A period is the lining of the uterus being shed, and that lining is what's needed to sustain a pregnancy. So if you've had your period, it showed up when it was supposed to and was a normal period for you, then you can take that as a very good indication that you're not pregnant.
