Question: Pregnancy signs
|stevie_6 - Sun Sep 02, 2007 7:39 pm||
My girlfriend and I had anal sex with out a condom on. A very small amount leaked out and was around the vaginal opening. This occurred around august 1st. She is on the birth control that makes it so she has her period once every 3 or 4 months. She thinks she may be pregnant because she has stomach pains the correlate with her stomach pain (i.e. lower back hurts, the lower part of her stomach hurts), this has been occuring for about three weeks. This is about the same time volleyball camp started. she has gotten dizzy twice in the last week. She isn't constipated or anything like that. Should we be worried about a possile pregnancy or is this just a case of us being too nervous about something as minor as a pulled muscle?

Either of your thoughts here could be correct but for verification, or peace of mind, she might want to take a pregnancy test. These do not have to be connected with a period so it doesn't matter what birth control she uses. If she is diligent about the use of the contraceptives, her chances of being pregnant from this encounter are slim.
Probably a good move is to have the abdominal pain checked out, assuming something besides pregnancy is going on, but do the test anyway.
