Am I Pregnant after Unprotected Sex Join this Group

pregnancy risk or not?

By November 7, 2012 - 9:21pm

My boyfriend and I use a condom (correctly) every time and he pulls out before coming every time and we have never experienced any problems before. I have never been on birth control, but we are always very careful.
We had sex on October 11th. I was just on my period from October 3rd-9th. The time we had sex the condom did not have any breaks or tears. I had been feeling like I was getting some symptoms of pregnancy, dizziness, headaches, fatigue, and breast pain on October 17th, one week later. They showed up all at once and I didn't think my period would start that soon again.
I took a pregnancy test out of panic even though I know it was too early to tell if I were to be pregnant.
Now I am still dizzy and get out of breath easily with breast/nipple pain and bloating and still worried. I am not sure what to do because I am so young and am not ready to have a child, even though I know I was running a risk. Am I just over reacting or could I actually be pregnant even though we used the precautions that we did? I stress out easily. I just need help and some peace of mind so I can focus on the next step I need to take. It has almost been a month and I should be due for another period here soon, but I have never been that regular.
