Hey, I'm new here so I don't know if I'm posting this right or not. I need some answers. I'm 16 and a virgin, I've never had any sexual experiences before. About 3 weeks ago, my boyfriend came to visit me and we took things a little far than I expected. It started with us making out and the next second we're grinding. We were both naked when we did it but he did not put it in. Also he didn't ejaculate nor pre-cum. Though I'm still scared of the fact that I could get pregnant. I've had my period on time but it seemed unusual. It started with some brown spotting the day before it started, then it was normal until the second day when I noticed it had stopped for the night. I've felt a bit dizzy and had a slight lower, left abdominal pain. I could barely feel it though. Also I seem to be urinating more frequently. I must mention that lately I've been quite stressed and haven't eaten much. I don't know if I'm being paranoid or if this is psychological, but I need some opinions. Thank you.

Just to make sure we give you full information, Johanna linked you to that article because you've had a period since the incident you're describing.

For the future, direct genital-to-genital contact does have a risk of pregnancy. If you don't want to become pregnant, we'd suggest you use one or two methods of contraception or dial things back to activities that don't have a pregnancy risk. We'd be happy to talk about those options with you. You can also have a look here at what risks or non-risks different activities have: Can I Get Pregnant, or Get or Pass On an STI From That?

Periods do sometimes vary a bit, and that can be linked to changes in eating habits and lifestyle changes because of stress.

If you're having ongoing pain or other symptoms, it's a good idea to check in with a healthcare provider.
