Me and my boyfriend have been having unprotected sex for a couple weeks and hes been pulling out but ive had 2 periods in one month what does this mean? And I've recently had a aching back pain on my right side of my back. I'm not on birth control either.

Playing with fire: "Pulling Out" is a misnomer because whether the guy likes it or not...he's gonna leave "STUFF IN"....so you'll have to unfortunately, wait until you "miss" your next period and test yourself with a home pregnancy test. Unless you are trying to get pregnant then, unprotected sex under ANY CIRCUMSTANCE is ALWAYS a risk to get pregnant and believe me...it will happen. Good luck. ...Read more

Back Pain and lump: Symptoms of a "knot" or "lump" are most likely a muscle spasm if painful. Alas, may simply be a normal variation, but could also indicate sacroiliac pain (not serious) or facet syndrome (pain made worse by extending the back as a result of pressure on the small joints in the spine). Lumps can also be benign tumors, but usually not painful see a doc if no better. ...Read more

Upper left side of back ache with heart ache.

Upper left side of back ache with heart ache.

Nonspecific: Unfortunately this is a fairly nonspecific question. Heart ache suggests chest pain, which, if persistent, needs to be evaluated by a physician.

Sometimes the situation is reversed, with back pain causing radiation into the chest - again, evaluation with a physician will help to sort this out. ...Read more

Pinched nerve: I would need to know where exactly is the leg pain and whether numbness is also present. For how many days have u been experiencing the problem? Did you lift up something heavy prior to onset? From the limited information it sounds like a radiculopathy.
