Maybe: Sometimes your bowel habits do change in pregnancy. Also some women with IBS don't develop symptoms until pregnancy. However, if the pain is right upper abdomen or goes there after starting around the belly button, you need to inform your OB as it could be gallstones. Keep a food diary and see if there is anything you are eating triggering the symptoms. Gas x and immodium may help

Several things: Depending on where you are in your cycle, pain in your abdomen could be many things. Worrisome issues are ovarian cysts or ectopic pregnancy. Depending on your symptoms (nausea, vomiting, bleeding, diarrhea, contipation), it could be minor or serious. I would consult your doctor immediately.

Yes: Have you tested the person that you had unprotected sex with? Usually recommendation is testing every 6 months, but you can turn positive at any time. Get to your obgyn and get checked. Good luck.
