Intercourse for 1st time last week. Used a condom, pulled out and took Plan B just in case. I feel bloated and had gurgling noises in stomach. Pregnant?

Prob not: If you used a condom correctly (put it in right and used it the whole time) and he pulled out and you took plan b, the chance if you being pregnant is about (.15)x (.15)x (.15)=0.003 or 0.3 %. Now I'm not saying it's impossible, but very very unlikely. Hope all is well. Find a doc to start a more reliable (less anxiety provoking) long acting birth control. Look up iuds and subdermal implant. ...Read more

I feel bloated I have gas and I have close to no appetite. My stomach gurgles a lot and it makes me nauseous sometimes. What does this mean?

I feel bloated I have gas and I have close to no appetite. My stomach gurgles a lot and it makes me nauseous sometimes. What does this mean?

Feeling gassy...: Feeling full of "gas" may reflect malabsorption of food (like gluten, lactose), intake of poorly digested food, or choosing foods known to promote gas (beans, fizzy drinks). Sometimes its more complicated--a stomach emptying too slowly, bacterial overgrowth syndrome, delayed intestinal function, partial obstruction from any cause, infection, rectum problems, and pelvic pathology outside the gut. ...Read more
