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

Could arthritis in the throastic spine feel like back is aching on middle right side?

A proper history & physical exam, including an osteopathic hands-on exam might find & fix it. ...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. Depending on the diagnosis, the cause of the chest pain may also be causing your back ache. 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

Clenching knots under and around bellybutton level, air bloating, slight lower back ache (maybe more left side). Anything serious?

No: This is unlikely to be serious. Of course, if things get worse I could be wrong. Is this associated with your menstrual cycle? If so, Ibuprofen or another anti-inflammatory might solve your problems. ...Read more

Think diet!: Bloating or intestinal pain are almost always related to diet. Many people are severely constipated if consuming the average the American diet. Sometimes there r certain food intolerances such as dairy or wheat that can cause this. A simple x-ray by your primary care physician can determine your degree of constipation. Elimination diets can help determine what foods could be causing the bloating ...Read more
