ok this will take awhile to explain.
me and my boyfriend had never had sex. and im not officially ready.almost a week ago we still wanted a "preview" of what sex would be like so he stuck his penis in me(unprotected) and took it out. ive been so paranoid about the whole thing ever since. ive been looking online at symptoms of pregnancy and i keep thinking i have them. i have to pee more often but i cant really tell cuz i dont remember hwo i used to pee before. i have been belching more often but i dont know if thats because im paranoid. i know he didnt jiz in me because like we kept doing stuff afterwards and i gave him head and he jizzed then. i have a tingly feeling in my stomach but i always get that feeling when i have anxiety which i do alot. my periods usually dont come exactly the same time every month and last month they came at around the 13th of july because iremember i had surgery on the 20th of july for my knee. i was only on my medications for my knee about 2 weeks afterwards. am i pregnant or just paranoid?

Here's the thing- trying to look for symptoms of pregnancy is HIGHLY unreliable. Most of the symptoms that are common in early pregnnacy are also even MORE common in a number of other ailments (like the belching could just be from gas, the stomach ache from indigestion gas or nerves, etc.) Also, for the record, more frequent urination during pregnancy comes from pressure on the bladder from the growing fetus later in a pregnancy- you would not be experiencing that now.

When was this risk? You can take a pregnancy test as early as 10-14 days after a risk to get an accurate result.

This would have also presented STI risks. You and your boyfriend should plan on both getting a full STI screening (even if you've had no previous partners) about a month from now, and one about 6 months after that.

Also, hon, it may be time for you and your boyfriend to REALLY address your boundaries and the fact that you ARE having sex. If you are not comfortable havign sex yet and don't think your ready, you need to stick to that, because what you're doing now IS sexual activity. And I'm not talking about just penetration - unprotected oral sex presents big STI risks, as well.

Check out these articles for a better idea - you may even want to read them with your partner so you're both on the same page:
