hey there, i am 18 years old and i had had protected sex with my boyfriend a couple of times on 1st and 3rd August 2017. my period is scheduled on 22nd August. i have PCOD (very minor stage). today (13th August) i am sick - started with throat infection and then cold and now i have slight fever and body weakness. still 8 days are left for my period and as i have PCOD it may delay or come soon too. my nipples are paining when touched since 4 - 5 days which is unusual and i have white discharge which is normal. my boyfriend had sucked my nipples before having sex. does that cause the pain? the condom did not rip or come out during intercourse, neither it was torn before. we had checked it beforehanded. do i have a chance of getting pregnant? please respond. thank you.

Dear Anon,

Thank you for posting.

If you had protected sex with no condom mishap, there is no reason to think you are pregnant. If he ejaculated inside you (unprotected), that would be a cause for concern. The symptoms you are having are not associated with pregnancy. You have a cold, virus of some sort.
