If you've been using your method of birth control consistently and correctly then you should be protected.

However, any time you have sex without some sort of barrier you put yourself and your partner at risk for STD/STIs. The two of you should get tested and stock up on things such as condoms and gloves for the future. See Safe, Sound & Sexy – A Safer Sex How-To for what to use when.

And please keep in mind that "symptoms" such as an upset stomach are not a reliable indicator of pregnancy. Nothing, short of a pregnancy test or actually giving birth, is.

if you suspect you have food poisoning for any reason, please call your doctor so you can get antibiotics to treat the infection. Depending on the kind of bacteria, you could be doing a lot of harm to your body by just letting it go unchecked.
