Ok so had sex during my ovulation time right after Christmas and did the pull out method. I had my period this month but it came 5days earlier than what it normally does. Then 2wks later I went pee and when I wiped there was a little blood. None since then and its been a few days already. But my stomach feels like there's a ball in it, always having to pee and my boobs are sore. I'm not sure what's going on. Anyone else have these issues?

Welcome to ehealthforum.
The recent symptoms that you describe could suggest chances of pregnancy if you had been sexually active without protection around ovulation time. Pullout/withdrawal method of contraception is associated with highest failures (pre-cum/pre-ejaculatory fluid is known to contain sperms and no man can be 100% sure that pre-cum/pre-ejaculatory fluid did not leak out during vaginal penetration). Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
