My girlfriend and I are having a problem. We had unprotected sex about two months ago (Pulled out though). I’m not here for a lecture about how bad that was. I know, it was irresponsible, immature, etc. That was the first and last time that will happen. I promise.
Anyway, she started to worry about being pregnant. She got her period two weeks later (on time), and she said it was wierd (see here). She went to the doctor and asked, and he said it was fine, poked at her belly and stuff, but did no internal examinations. She was still worrying about being pregnant, but was being stubborn about taking a test. She didn’t want to, because her parents might find it and flip out (they don’t know we have sex, and think she’s on the pill for cramps, which she kinda is).
And so she worries. Then she gets strep thoat, which I get too (see here), and has to take meds for that. The meds mess with her pills and give her really bad cramps, and when she talked to her doctor, the doctor said to stop taking the pill, so she stops taking them (no sex during this time). She finishes her Strep meds, and has a period, while not taking the pills. She said that her period this time was wierd too. Like it was lighter blood, and it didn’t have the usual chunkies towards to end. It only lasted 5 days instead of the usual 6.
I told her it was probably the meds, but then I started to get worried about pregnancy, as I was looking up some stuff on the net, and she had a couple of the early symptoms (nausa mainly). I’m still working on getting her to take a test, and I think that I’ll have her talked into it by the end of the week, but until then, can someone appease my worries? Could it be that it was the Meds that she was taking? Or maybe that she was worrying and stressing a lot about it? Or maybe it’s normal, and she’s just making a big deal out of nothing?
I need help… I’m flipping out here. I know I could handle it if she was pregnant, but I’d rather she wasn’t. Again, I’m not looking for lectures, I just need some reassurance that I am probably not going to be a daddy any time soon.
Hoping for support… Thanks Dopers
