Hi, Im 17 years old and might be pregnant. My boyfriend and I had sex on the 19th of August and the condom broke. I couldnt get EC.I will take a test on Friday if i dont start. My last period started on the 2nd or 3rd of August, was I at a point where there was a good chance of ovulating? The day before and after this incident my side was hurting, and ive went to the doctor for my side hurting like this before and he said it was probably from ovulating so it scares me. Also I know you cant go by symptoms to know if youre pregnant, but my stomachs been cramping since a few days after it happened, but its not like a period cramp. It never happened before this happened, and ive read that it could be youre stomach preparing for the baby or something like that? Is this true? Could this mean something? And weve never had sex since it happened because if im not i will get on the pill before we do it again. So thats the only time it could have happened. Thanks.

Every woman's cycle is different so there's no sure fire way for us to tell you if you were ovulating at the time.
The symptoms you're experiencing could be from anything - it could even be caused by your worrying about it! The body can react to the mind in interesting ways. And, as you know, you can't rely on symptoms to tell you anything... it's likely you're paying a lot more attention to things that seem out of the ordinary.
It's been more than 10 days since the incident so you can take a home pregnancy test. You don't have to keep worrying until you miss a period at this point. Take a test and move on from there.
