May I be pregnant?

I will be 16 at the end of november and had my first time on 20th july. Then done it again 5 days later. He had had already experience for 2 years, we used a condom each time, but being my first time I am afraid it could have happened something wrong and I could be pregnant. I had my period every month, but the unnormal thing that happened is that in september it came first on 3rd (3 days earlier than is was supposed to come) and then I had my period again on 26th (much earlier than it had to come). I don't feel ill or dizzy or even tired, but I keep wondering why does my period now come irregular if before having sex it always came regularly? I was a little stressed because of this, the exams I had in school and because he broke up with me and replaced me quickly and gained weight, but just 4 or 5 kg. I think this could be also because I always eat when I am bored and in school I have a lot of free time between my classes and I love the cakes from our cafeteria. I used to eat even though I had no appetite.

I told my mother about my worries, but she said she doesn't think there would be any chance for me to be pregnant because I had my periods and as she asked me if my boobs grew bigger I said 'not really. Maybe just a little because of gaining weight'.
I spent hours searching signs of pregnancy on the internet, but, as I said, I am not feeling tired or ill, my boobs are neither sensitive when I touch them or feeling harder, I am not feeling like throwing up - I felt a little a few weeks ago, but I think that was the placebo effect because as I convinced myself I am not pregnant and stopped reading all these pregnancy signs those 5 seconds I felt like I would vomit I had one or two times per day disappeared. I don't have to go to the toilet more times than usual. I went in the first week after having sex and it always hurt when I was peeing, but I think that was an infection because we tried anal, but then he returned to vaginal sex without changing the condom. And I took a medicament called zenocin or zanocin and after max. 1 week everything became normal again.
The thing that made me panic was that sometimes (I am not sure if I am feeling it anymore, but if I do, it's not as remarkable as in the first month/5-6 weeks) I felt something like pressure below my belly. Sometimes for a longer while then other days, but although I searched any answer why would that happen I found no explanation.

→So... if I don't really have any symptom that I might be pregnant, like vomit, illness, feeling tired, bigger/sensitiver boobs, got my period (but irregularly in the last month, because of the stress I went through) but I had that strange feeling below my belly... May I still be pregnant?

I was going to take a pregnancy test this month, but my period came 1 week earlier. It lasted 6 or 7 days. In the first day it was not that heavy, then from the 2nd to the 4th or 5th day it was really heavy and then, like always, not that heavy anymore. I talked to my mother hoping she would come with me to a doctor to see if I am or not pregnant, but she is convinced I am not. I hope I will visit a doctor this week, but I also want to know what you would say about that strange feeling I used to have. If I am still having it, it's so tiny I don't realise it anymore. Or just rarely.

Hi Anon - Thanks for your question and for sharing your information. You've obviously given this a lot of thought, and it's good to see that you are also having ongoing discussions with your mom.

It's common and normal for young women to have irregular periods. When we are stressed, it has an impact on our hormones. Those changes in hormones can also impact our periods, including when we have them. So you've got a couple of factors that could be contributing to your cycle timing being off.

It's good that you're seeing your doctor soon. Also, keep talking to your mom, she knows what she's talking about, and seems very supportive.

Hope that helps,
