Is it possible to get pregnant just after your period?

Yes, it's possible. But since you used a condom, the likelihood is very low. 

Don't over think everything - it'll stress you out.  Your risk is probably less than 2%. Just go on with life and your period will come when it's due!

Hi Anon

Condoms are about 98% effective when used correctly. We cannot tell you if you're pregnant or not - a test can let you know if you don't get your period when expected. 

If you continue with cramps and dizziness, see your doctor.
