I can't be pregnant, right?

The first and last time I had sex was October 3. Reused a condom and I just started my third period since. The two periods before this one started on the day they were supposed to and lasted 6 days each (which is normal for me), but they were lighter than normal. There too much blood for it to be implantation bleeding or spotting though. I started my third period today but it's 3 days early and it's way lighter than normal. For the longest time I had mucus in my throat and nausea (they started after I got my first period after the sex), but those symptoms have gone away now. It isn't possible for me to be pregnant, right? I'm too young for a kid and I'm just really anxious about this.

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
You cannot be pregnant because you have had two regular periods since you had sex. The vaginal bleeding that happens during the first few months of pregnancy is only spotting that last 1 or 2 days. So you have nothing to worry about.
If you are still anxious however, you can always take a pregnancy test.
