Smallsmileys150 Pregnancy Scare, am I overreacting?

Okay, so my boyfriend and I had sex one night (condom was used, and not torn afterwards because I watched him take it off, it was fine) and about two days later we had sex again (condom used) and then four days later I got my period. Immediately after my period was over (my cycle is usually about 4-5 days) we had sex again, and again a condom was used (same with before, it wasn't broken). Another day, we had sex twice in one day (once in the morning, once at night) and a condom was used both times (again, not broken). Then a few days later, we had sex again (condom was used, and not broken).

Here recently, I had revealed to my parents that I am sexually active. They weren't happy (because I had not come to them first so they could put me on birth control...and yes, I was without birth control during the times I had sex). Then they started freaking out and talking all this "could get pregnant" mess, and it began scaring me.

Ever since that night, I have been nervous and scared that I could be pregnant. I'm stressing and worrying so much more after "thinking" I could be having pregnancy symptoms.

I have:

-frequent urination (note: I've been drinking a lot of fluids lately though)
-my stomach feels weird (it doesn't hurt or cramp, but it feels weird)
-my stomach now has a big "knotted" bulge.
-my boobs are a little tender, but not sore (though they are usually like that because I accidently sleep in my bra quite often)
-I've been eating quite a lot. (but it could be because I'm stressing)


But I also have thought of reasons I could possibly be overreacting:

-when I do urinate (one right after the other, always feeling the pressure to pee) hardly anything came out (like a bladder infection would do)
-I could be stressing and scared, because it was after I told my parents about having sex that I began "noticing" these "symptoms"
-I'm very well known to "overexaggerate" "freak out" "worry" quite easily.


So what do you all think? Am I pregnant or am I just freaking out over nothing?

I think you're just over reacting and worrying about nothing.
But if you're really worried then take a pregnancy test or just wait until around the time you should get your next period. If you don't get it do a pregnancy test.

I may not be a girl but I'm going to advice anyways!

1st thing is that you did good going to your parents (better late than never!!)
2nd if you used condoms each time and they were unbroken each time it's highly unlikely
3rd. I agree with @charlotte

If you're prone to over reacting and you noticed these symptoms AFTER telling your parents when they went mad with the pregnancy thing,I highly doubt that you're pregnant,but until this is sorted...maybe no more sex?? Just as a precaution of course

Not sure if I helped,but I hope so!

I think it be your parents who are over-reacting in this case. Your profile thing says you are 18, in which case you are perfectly capable of making your own choices and taking precautions as you see fit, you dont need them to do it for you You're doing just fine as you are, if you're using condoms than its highly doubtful your pregnant. They're probably just trying to scare you cuz they're scared themselves that you're growing up, I'd take no notice of their fretting. If you're happy with using the condoms, keep doing what you're doing. If you wanna take extra precautions, go for it Like i say, you can make your own descisions.

If you are stressed and worried about being pregnant it can actually trick your brain and you begin feeling and having the symptoms of pregnancy, even if you aren't pregnant. I'd chill out and relax about it, wait for your period and if it doesn't come take a pregnancy test. Then take it from there. :-)

I think you're worrying needlessly. All of the symptoms could be:
* your mind making your body think it's pregnant and giving you false pregnancy
*Could be your period is on it's way, especially with the breast tenderness
*UTI or many other things that would be trivial if you weren't stressing about being pregnant.

My advice is to keep an eye on things and if you still aren't sure wait three weeks and have a pregnancy test.

i think it's just your parents who are freaking you out.. if there was a condom and it wasn't broken.. theres a highly unlikely chance that you are. but you never know once again.. so pregnancy test is the way to go








You take away the pain, and I thank you for that

Wow...maybe I should have rephrased my question from "am I?" to "could I be?"
