I had sex with my boyfriend on June 1st, two weeks ago. For the past couple of days I've been extremely gassy. I've had severe abdominal pain, migraines, & bloating. My stomach has also been rumbling a lot too if that means anything (& not hunger rumbling). We used protection (condom), but I have no clue what could be wrong. I feel like I need to poop (sorry for lack of a better word) but nothing but gas "comes out." It hurts most after I eat. I haven't had a bowel movement in about a week but I really feel I need to. I've also been having to pee often. Could I be pregnant or could it just be constipation? Most other websites say that the pregnancy symptom of being constipated wouldn't be seen at 2 weeks. I'm 18 years old & have never experienced constipation or being pregnant so I'm just curious to know what could be wrong. I've been experiencing this for about 2-3 days now. Somebody please answer so I can stop stressing out Crying or Very sad

It sounds very much as if you have one of those modern minor viral or bacterial infections doctors never attempt to identify.

These sort of symptoms aren't uncommon and such infections can be a consequence of coming into contact with new people who bring bugs which you haven't experienced before and have no anti-bodies for. A new boyfriend/girlfriend can literally make each other sick for a while and when a kid changes schools a whole family can be brought to its knees.
There is a type of mild dysentery that has similar symptoms.

If the condom was used correctly and examined afterwards (which is best practice) and found to be without defects you shouldn't be pregnant, especially if intercourse took place in the couple of weeks after the end of your last period.

Drink plenty of clear fluids and eat light meals. If your condition stays the same or gets worse after a week you should seek medical advice.
A mild laxative might help ease your discomfort.
Any sudden sharp abdominal pain that doubles you over for 20 minutes is potentially life-threatening and requires urgent medical attention.

Good luck!
