I had sex on my menstrual last Tuesday (it was lighter by then), 3 or 4 days before it ended (it ended on Friday), and we used a condom. Now a week later, I had a small flow of watery, thin blood that stained my underwear. I always have what seems to be an excessive amount of discharge, but this bleeding is abnormal. I had been constipated and gassy for weeks (way before the sex), and today all of a sudden my bowels are moving. I can't tell if I'm nervous and nauseous out of a pregnancy fear, or if my organs are upset from the bowel movements, or pregnancy.

My periods are usually very heavy, with violent backaches and cramps, and these past few months I've been very weak and fatigued, regardless of whether or not I'm on my period. I've been having alot of pain in my ovary area, and what feels like lymph node pain (swollen and sore) in the crease between my pubic mons and thighs. My mother has had uterine fibroids, and I have yet to get to a doctor to see if I have them too. Considering all of this, could I be pregnant?

Welcome to ehealthforum

Chances of pregnancy during the periods is not possible and also you used condom so pregnancy can be ruled out.The light bleeding which you experienced might be due to the ovulation as hormonal changes occur during that time and it is common to experience light bleeeding mid cycle.Constipation and gassy could be due to lack of fibre in diet.Have more of fresh fruits,veggies,oats,fibre etc in diet.
The pain experienced in the ovary area might be due to either fibroids,PID,endometritis etc.You require a pelvic examination along with USG scan and hormonal analysis to rule out the exact cause.Consider visiting your Gynaecologist for evaluation.

Take Care!
