During my menstrual cycle I get painful cramps and its painful to pee the first couple days but then when my period ends I feel fine. Is this abnormal?

No: No, I have heard this complaint before. I think for some women the uterus just contracts so badly at times that it also causes the bladder to contract, causing painful bladder syndrome and thus painful urination for a short time, which sounds like what you are describing. Although not a lot of women experience it this badly, there are definitely some, so you are not alone. I wish you the best. ...Read more

Unlikely: If both of you had your underwear on during the episode, pregnancy is unlikely. If you miss your period by 4-5 days, do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
