I am just back from my holiday, and I had unprotected sex last sunday, but the guy did pull out. i have a boyfriend who i have been having sex with for about 5 weeks, always protected, so i have been getting leg cramps and stomach pains which is what i get when im due my period, except i'm not due for another week or 2, i have sore breasts, I am absolutely shattered most of the time, and i am peeing a lot. am i just over-reacting or what?
What's happening to yourself at the moment is most likely your head playing tricks to you, simply because you know that what you did was high risk. I recommend that you head to a local sexual health clinic immediately and get yourself emergency contraception, which works best within 72 hours, but can still lower your pregnancy risk at a later point in time.
In a few weeks, you should get yourself an STD screen (the people at the clinic can advise you further) and well, you should give some thought about telling your partner about what happened last weekend. Simply because you're putting him at an STD risk, too. Condoms, after all, do not preotect from all STDs (like HPV, for example).

She's not returned, so we don't know, but...
Please do not try to diagnose pregnancy through symptoms or other people's experiences. You need to take a test if you suspect you are pregnant. That is the ONLY way to know if you are pregnant, short of actually giving birth. Sorry, but that's the way it is.
Having unprotected sex had a lot more consequences, however, and you need a full STD/STI screen ASAP, and then another in six months.
