I'm kind of worried and I need to ease my mind.
The first day of my last period was October 26 . My bf and I had sex once on November 10 and he pulled out. On November 12 my breasts got sore and normally they don't get sore until about 7 days before my next period. Is this normal or should I be worried? Could I be pregnant?
Please someone explain to me what's going on as this is very strange.

Withdrawal (pulling out before ejaculation) is about 73% effective with typical use. So, you did use a method of contraception, but you used the least effective one and did have a pregnancy risk.

However, at not even a week after a risk, it is way too soon for you to experience any sort of symptoms of pregnancy.

I'd not worry about this right now. Some variation is totally normal. Should your period turn out to be late this cycle, however, you can then take a pregnancy test.
