Pregnant or Stressed?

On August 18th, I got my last period. It lasted about 7 days, with normal flow. Ended on the 24th or 25th. On August 31, my [suspected] highest point of ovulation had occurred.
This is where my question comes in. On September 6th, my boyfriend and I had intercourse. That day, he had not ejaculated before, and had gone pee half an hour before we started (it's been said by peeing, men get rid of any sperm in their "tubes" and in pre-cum) We had used a condom, but about half way through, it broke. My boyfriend said that when it broke, he had only done 2 more pushes or so, realized what happened, then immediately pulled out. He did not ejaculate inside of me, at all. We quickly replaced the broken condom, and went back to sex. About 2 minutes later, we decided it would be best to end, because we were both a little scared from previously...

So now it is again day 1 of my cycle, no period, and extreme stress for the past week that I could be pregnant.

So I ask...What are my chance of actually being pregnant?

No, there is almost no risk of being pregnant. You used a condom with no ejaculation, so there would be no sperm that could have entered your vagina from your description.

Today is not "day 1" of your cycle if you have not started bleeding yet. You just had a period on August 18th (28 days ago), and women's cycles can vary from 21-35 days as a normal range. Your period is not late (today is only Sept 14th), so I'm assuming you are looking at the calendar thinking that if you don't have a perfect 28-day cycle that something is wrong, or you are pregnant because of your scare? It is great that you are using protection, and your boyfriend withdrew before ejaculating...you both did exactly what you needed to do. I hope you can stop worrying, as women's bodies are meant to ebb-and-flow, and sometimes our periods will be 30 day cycles, sometimes 27 day cycles, even for the most "regular" among us. Excessive stress can cause irregular cycles, so try to relax and your period will begin in the next few weeks!

That's exactly what I meant by saying "day 1"
I wrote this early morning and I guess I wasn't exactly thinking about what I wrote.
My usual periods are about 28 days, today being 28.

I guess I worded the question wrong. I'm pretty sure my period will be late, pregnant or not, because of my constant worrying over the possibilities.

So, basically, what you're telling me is that even though the condom broke, I should not be worried because my boyfriend pulled out?
