My girlfriend and i have been together for almost 10 months now, and there's no one else in the world i could see myself with, Recently she's been telling me about having pain behind/around her belly button, as well as the area getting "harder"? for lack of better words, i've noticed her belly getting a bit of a "pooch"....I was just curious if this could possibly be a sign of pregnancy?

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms could be suggestive of pregnancy, PID, pelvic adhesions, endometriosis etc. Wait and watch for her periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms. If pregnancy is suspected, or if periods are abnormal, she should consider visiting her gynecologist for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately).
Take care.

No you're fine you're not preggers, my boyfriend fingered me too but it's was in my behind I should say and someone had told me that it's easier to get pregnant through the but so I just tracked my period to make sure and I was find and it was actually a myth that the sperm would continue to swim until it found its destination bout the only place your back door sphincter will lead to is your intestines
