Dear chinna,

Thank you for joining the EmpowHER community and for sharing your question!

Anytime you have sex, you risk getting pregnant-even condoms are not always fool-proof!

Since you had sex during your period and used a condom, it is very unlikely that you are pregnant. The feelings you had the next day is probably just nerves and from being worried-You can't feel pregnancy symptoms right away.

I am sure that you will be just fine. Try to relax and wait for your period. If your period is late-then you will have to take a pregnancy test to find out.

I hope this helps!
