so i had sex for the first time about two weeks ago. and the week before i had sex i had my period. we used a condom. but i'm worried because my stomach has really been hurting me. like the area below my belly button and i have no idea what it could be. i think i might have eaten something bad, from exercise, or my period might be coming. sometimes in that area i feel cramping and it hurts a little to walk. but i haven't been throwing up, or i haven't had a fever, and i can eat fine. i'm just really worried and i don't know what it could be. my friend thinks i could be pregnant but i just think there's no possible way that could have happened. we were both safe and careful. and there is no way i could tell my parents. they have no idea about my sex life and i don't plan on telling them. they're really strict and i don't know what they would do. but is this something i should be worried about? should i get this checked out at the doctors? should i take a pregnancy test? is there even any chance of me being pregnant?

If you used a condom properly for all genital contact, and you didn't see any rips or tears (and usually when a condom rips, it SHREDS, so you would have noticed it), then you have a very, very low risk of pregnancy. Also, pregnancy symptoms probably wouldn't show up only two weeks after you had sex - your "symptoms" could be caused by any number of things, including everything you mentioned. Assuming you haven't had sex between this incident two weeks ago and now, it's been long enough for you to take a pregnancy test and have it be accurate, so if you want, you can pick up one of those and ease your mind (but again - there's a very low risk of pregnancy from what you've described, so the test is really only to calm your worries).

So if you care to find me
Look to the western sky
As someone told me lately
Everyone deserves the chance to fly
