Nope, a growl-y stomach has nothing to do with your reproductive organs.

Yep, discharge is completely normal and desirable.

While you might notice changes in the consistency and texture (it is completely normal for it to differ, depending on where you are at in your menstrual cycle) you will probably notice discharge every day. It is nature's wonderful way of keeping keeping you clean (discharge "rinses," so to speak, those delicate membranes) and moist.

gases can accumulate in your intestines (why else do we fart?) when air gets trapped, or as a byproduct of metabolism. your intestines squeeze, squirm and undulate a lot. so it should be no surprise that with all that movement, you might get some gurgling and growling from the depths of your bowels (the sound resonates in those gas pockets).

We always advise that girls try NOT to rely on "subtle changes" to determine whether or not they may be pregnant. No odd tummy-aches, no bloating, no wild mood swings. Just two things can tell you: either get a pregnancy test or wait 9 months and see if a baby pops out. We prefer the former.

about the gurgling. avoiding foods that cause gas can alleviate that. however, a lot of those gas-causing foods are good for you (beans, veggies, milk, etc). *shrug* you win some, you lose some.

if you used your condom properly, then you should be okay. also, it is *not* recommended that he withdraw really fast to not ejeaculate inside you. the condom is there for a reason. pulling out can cause the condom to slip off inside the vagina, which can be big trouble.

proper withdrawal of a condom includes withdrawal before the penis goes flaccid and always holding the base of the condom when pulling out.

By the way, unless:

a) you've been menstruating for over five years;
b) your cycle is completely regular; and
c) you're practising the full "Fertility Awareness Method" - taking your basal body temperature as soon as you wake up every morning, charting it, and checking your cervical mucus daily,

I really wouldn't assume that you know when you ovulated with any accuracy. When you ovulate can be very very unpredictable, especially in the first few years after you start menstruating. And your vaginal discharge can be affected by all sorts of things other than ovulation.

Some women get crampy when they ovulate, some women get cramps before their period starts, and some women get cramps during their periods. You may or may not be one of those women, and we really couldn't tell you. The cramps might indicate that your period is coming, or they might be something different (for example, gas pains can also be in the lower abdomen, and can be mistaken for uterine cramps). You could always wait and see if your period comes in a few days, which might indicate a correlation between the cramps and the period (though not necessarily; the cramps could still be something else).

It seems, lovergrl, that you're scared about possibly being pregnant. You know what might be easier on your mind than fretting about gurgles and cramps? Taking a friendly, affordable pregnancy test!
