I recently lost my virginity and ever since I have been paranoid about being pregnant. I have taken my birth control pills correctly and consistently for about a year now and have had a normal period since then. Though still I seem to worry nonstop. I feel relatively queasy (though not nautious) but I find that when I take my mind off the possibility of pregnancy, this feeling retreats. I was wondering if it is common to feel paranoid after your first sexual encounter and if this paranoia can trigger queasiness or nervousness.

This paranoia is pretty normal. If you're really nervous though, take a pregnancy test, they're relatively cheap to the piece of mind they'll give you. If you have been taking your birth control for over a year and doing it at the same time every day, the chances of being pregnant are slim to none. If the paranoia continues though, consider talking to someone about it and getting switched to a birth control that treats for PMDD or something like that, the stress can be really harmful.
