Had unprotected sex about a month ago ... He nutted in me but now I keep have pain on my right side right by my rib cage. What could cause this?

Pain in the ribs: Pain in the ribs is in no way related to your sexual history. I am not sure why you included it. Anatomically these are very separate. Rib pain on the right side can be a liver or gall bladder problem; it can be a muscle spasm or a rib or chest injury. It can represent anxiety. I would advise getting in to a physician to examine you and diagnose the problem for you. ...Read more

Had unprotected sex for maybe 2 minutes he didn't finish. Strt period in 4 days. Had severe pains on left side below rib cage. Back pains. Normal PMS sym?

Go see your doctor: I'm not here to judge but regardless of age, I don't recommend unprotected sex unless you're trying to get pregnant. Even if it was only for 2 minutes & he didn't "finish", you can still get pregnant. Or perhaps catch a sexually transmitted disease/infection (which can cause pain). So go see your family doc (or planned parenthood or county health/std clinic) for evaluation & treatment plus bcpills. ...Read more

Less often, an imaging study or looking inside the gut with a scope (endoscopy) is needed. ...Read more
