light period, ovary pain, possibly pregnant?

my period came 6 days late and lasted for only two days, followed by two days of spotting. Normally, i'd need 4 pads per day plus one night pad for the 1st two days of my period, and then 2-3 pads a day for the last three ones. this time though, i needed only one pad per day and one night pad which was barely spotted (usually i bleed over night), for the first two days, the last ones were just spotting and a panty liner was more then enough to absorb everything. the blood was lighter in color, also more fluid then usual and without the usual period odor.

now it is 6 days since this little period, and i am having a constant dull ache in my left ovary.
during the previous week, i was having crazy dreams the whole week before the period started, having night sweats, was waking up hungry, and having an egg-white odorless discharge, tons of it, up until my period started which is not usual for me at all, i get that only during ovulation.
a friend of mine told me i actually might be pregnant, especially after i told her that four of these vivid dreams were all pregnancy-related and that this happens often, but i counted that out as soon as the bleeding started.
i did have one unprotected sex with my partner the week i was supposed to ovulate, but it was very very brief and he didn't ejaculate inside of me.
my friend claims that i could be pregnant anyway, even with a period, but i shook that off until now, since my ovary won't leave me alone. i'm not having a sharp or stabbing pain, just a dull, constant, "electric" kind of one.
i don't know what to think anymore, any advice is welcome.

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  If you had unprotected sex, your chances for pregnancy are higher.  Even if he didn't ejaculate inside, precum can contain sperm.  The changes to your cycle, along with the pain in your ovaries can be due to ovarian cyst or many other conditions as well.  You need to take a pregnancy test and see a doctor about the pain.
