I may just be overreacting to a new situation, but I need some help. This month, my boyfriend and I tried to have sex for the first time. This is something we have both talked about and everything. We attempted it twice, once just after my period ended and again a little over two weeks later (this past Saturday). Both times, we ended up stopping and he pulled out before ejaculation, and we DID use a condom. I know my risk is probably small, but I'm going to psych myself out if I keep dwelling on it.
My period is supposed to start again early next week, but I don't want to stress out and make it late... I really just need someone who knows what they are talking about to calm me down a little bit, because I can't stop thinking about the "what ifs."

If the condoms were on for all contact and did not break or slip off, a pregnancy risk would be very unlikely. With perfect use, condoms are 98% effective at preventing pregnancy.
