Might be pregnant! Can anyone please help me understand what's going on?

So I suspected that I might be pregnant. I forgot to take two of my birth control pills amd had sex. The condom broke. And ever since then I have been having sore breast. Its on and off throughout the day. Or usually feel sore if I touch them. Feeling full in my stomach. Constantly eating. I finished half a box of bagel bites in one day . Normally I eat about 8. So huge increase in appetite. I had a sick stomach last week Saturday . Everything I ate that day upset my stomach and I'd have to use the bathroom everytime after I ate. I also had a large increase in discharge. Could that have been due to having Sex ?? Also the night before my period comes I usually have cramps. I had absolutely no cramps. Then the morning my period was due I had discharge all day and very dull cramps . Which I thought was a sign that my period would come . Every time I ran to the bathroom to see there was just more discharge. Then the next day I think my period came. It was a bright red . But clear. It wasn't enough to soak through the pad. And it started to get darker through the day. Then the next day it stopped. And when I wiped I would have pink streaks, discharge or it would be brown. So my "period" only lasted a day . Later that day I kept feeling little pokes in my lower left side . Around the area where I think not completely sure . But where my ovaries should be. I took a pregnancy test but it messed up . Can anyone confirm if this is a sign of being pregnant ? I really need help . I'm not able to get another pregnancy test.

There are no age requirements to purchase a home pregnancy test.  They are available at any pharmacy (Rite Aid, CVS).  You can always get a ride for a friend, take the bus, or if there is one close to your home you might be able to walk.

Hello and thank you for sharing your question.

Missing birth control pills does increase your chances of getting pregnant and you have all the symptoms of pregnancy.  I suggest that you make an appointment with planned parenthood.  If you have low income you may be able to get a pregnancy test with no charge.

A pregnancy test is really the only way of knowing for sure, before you start showing.
