Could I be pregnant or is it just my anxiety?

I take the combined birth control pill with both estrogen & progestin. I'm very good about taking it at/around the same time every night. I was on vacation one day and instead of taking it at 11 at night I took it when I woke up at 5 that next morning. And then took the next one on the packet at 11 that night. The next week I had sex and it's possible that the condom busted but it was after he pulled out. Recently I've been feeling just slightly lightheaded, and I've had a loss of appetite and I've been so tired all the time. I went and got blood drawn for tests but I have not heard anything back yet. The reason I went is cause my mom thinks I could be anemic. I can't help but freak myself out and anytime I have a stomach ache (most likely from not eating much) I automatically assume I could be pregnant considering I have some anxiety which does not help at all. I have also had 2 periods within this time at their expected times but I've read that girls have still had their periods and been pregnant.

Hello, Annagramma,

Thank you for your message.

Based on your information, I think the chances are low. Try to relax and wait for your results.
