Symptoms:  headache nausea backpain occasional lower stomach cramps burping
Doctor :   You seem to have developed an intestinal infection. It is not clear if you discontinued your 'pills' because of your dia rrhoea even so since the incident took place towards the end of your cycle. You are not likely to be pregnant. Please consult your doctor for your stomach ailment.
