NVP Symptoms and Effects
Hi, i am 19 years old and my boyfriend and i had sex two nights in a row about almost 3 weeks ago. i am on the pill, and we used a condom both times, plus he pulled out both times. well a couple days after i got sick at work, threw up and felt nautious. that was the only time i have been sick. also that day, which was only a couple days after i had sex, i started to feel my abdomen kind of puffy. since then it has been a little swollen. i may be paranoid but please tell me what you think. i hope i am not pregnant. one more thing, we had sex a couple days after my period ended. please help me out! im scared! thank you!
Take a pregnancy test, if you have not done so by now and speak to your doctor if your nausea persists.
