My bf and i had unprotected sex but he pulled before he came. It has been 2 weeks. Few days ago, i feel dull pain when i press down on my belly button?

You expected this.: You and your bf must know that any responsible advice will be: never neglect to use protection until you are absolutely sure that it will be okay to become pregnant and that there is no chance of an std. It may not be likely that either has happened, but it is not impossible. The dull pain may not be related at all, but see your doctor, get tested as soon as recommended for preg & stds & be safe! ...Read more

Had sharp pain across belly button. Now have dull pain on left side thru back down to groin. Very painful. Can't see dr until Mon. What to do?

Pain: These symptoms may reflect a kidney stone or a kidney infection. It is atypical for kidney pain to reflect to the navel, but the other symptoms you describe suggest kidney and ureteral pain. The other possibility is an ovarian cyst problem or pelvic tube infection. I recommend you be evaluated sooner than Monday. ...Read more

Given your description, you should absolutely be seen in person via ER or Urgent Care for an abdominal exam, labs, vital signs, and possible imaging studies. Other clues to appendicitis would be nausea, lack of appetite, fever. If you have had your appendix removed in past, other problems should be ruled out. ...Read more

Possible diagnosis: There are several possible causes to chronic right lower abdominal pain. Appendicitis and other bowel problems make you very sick, very fast so they get looked into first. Fever, vomiting and worsening pain needs more urgent evaluation. Otherwise, an outpatient visit with your doc to look for hernias, kidney stones, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, spinal disorders is okay. Good luck and be well. ...Read more
