My tummy feels really bloated like I just ate a big meal ?

User Profile
I had unprotected sex the day before my period started & he finished inside of me.
I still had my period as scheduled but it was a bit unusual this time though. The first day or two it was normal, but then it started spotting & I noticed that the blood was brownish, but when I'd use the restroom, there would be a pink discharge when I'd wipe. This happened for 2 days & I think it's starting to go away now...this has never happened to me before !
but I've been feeling really strange. My tummy feels really bloated 24/7 like I just ate a big meal even when I first wake up in the morning hungry, I keep having to pee every couple of minutes, my back has been hurting, I get little cramps & pains in my stomach...
Not to mention that said guy already has a kid & had a child at a pretty young age & my mother has 7 kids so I'm afraid we're both really fertile haha..
Do you think I could have gotten pregnant? Or is it too soon to tell?

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms (altered period, brown/pink discharge, bloating, increased hunger, frequent urination, abdominal cramps) that you describe could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. Wait and watch for your next periods. If pregnancy is suspected, look out for development of any other new symptoms. If you suspect chances of pregnancy, you should consider visiting your doctor/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 adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any unusual/new symptoms immediately.
Take care.
