On March 14 I was fooling around with a guy

Patient

Q: On March 14 I was fooling around with a guy. his penis penetrated me for a very brief moment before he took it out and put on a condom. he finished no where near my vagina. two days later I had my period which was 1-2 days shorter and kind of lighter. a week after I had some stomach pains and occasional bloating as well as nausea but no morning sickness. I have also had a recurring headache. I tried a home pregnancy test - the toothpaste one. it resulted negative twice. I'm just worried and need a doctors opinion if I'm pregnant?

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com

I understand your concern.
The very fact that you got your period rules out pregnancy completely and you should not be worried. Sometimes the cycles can be lighter, and it is a normal variant.
The symptoms you have are suggestive of a stomach bug, and you can try Cap. Omeprazole 20 mg twice daily for 3 days. If the symptoms persist you can consult your physician who can suggest an antibiotic like Tab. Ciprofloxacin 500 mg twice daily for 3-5 days till the symptoms subside.

Hope this was helpful,
Regards
