Why am I bloated from under my breasts to my belly button after having unprotected sex ?

Possible pregnancy question, I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend on the first day my period came, next day it was gone, im normally very heavy and painful, but this was one evening then nothing. I wait till next period is due, was due on 18th April and came on the 16th April, was lighter than normal, not painful but still lasted same amount of time it should. Now lately i am not feeling myself, i have bad heartburn all the time, irratable and this maybe nothing but i seem to have bloated overnight, i look bloated from just under my breasts to just under my belly button. Does any of this sound like i may be pregnant? I am scared to take a pregnany test.

Hi Lori .
I don't think you are pregnant because on the first day of menstrual cycle ovulation doesn't occur and after that you had your next period also.One can not bloat so much in a day or so :) , it must be some gastritis kind of thing , don't get scared , you do a pregnancy test and relax totally.

Hi, I had unprotected sex (I know I shouldn t have) about a month ago. We tried the pull out method, but after he pulled out we continued having sex again. I had sex on the 18th and got my period a few days later, on the 22th. I should get my period right about now and I m getting belly cramps. Is it possible that I m pregnant?

Hi. I had my copper coil taken out on the 12.12.12, day my period started. I went on the mini- pill for 4 days before my husband and I decided that we might try for another baby (I have a four year-old daughter). We had intercourse almost every day. A week after what I thought it might be ovulation (on the 26.12.12, my periods are quite regular) I started experiencing pregnancy symptoms ( nausea , backacke, cramping, very painful breasts) which I understand might also be symptoms of my period approaching. They have gradually eased off (especially the pain on my breast) and I had a period on the 14.01.13 so five days late. I had taken a pregnancy test two days before which was negative. My period is pretty much to normal except that is very very dark in colour. However, that is not the reason I am writing but because I have started experiencing other symptoms which I am not sure might be related to my period or something else. I had a sharp pain on my belly botton which I remember from when I was pregnant with my daughter. I have been sweating almost every night since coming off the pill and I am still have it a month on. Finally, this morning I am really struggling to keep salivation under control. I just can t seem to stop producing it! So my question is: what is going on with me? I hope but I am not expecting to be pregnant. Should I take another test or there are not chances I am pregnant and should get checked for something else? Many thanks for your time. Domenica
