I am on birth control and take it at the same time every day. I have not missed a pill in the last month. A few weeks ago, my boyfriend was inside me for a decent amount of time without a condom, but he did not cum. We put the condom on before that happened. I did have bleeding, but it was two days later than usual. I bled for five days. On the second day I bled so much (sorry for the graphic detail...) that when I was changing my tampon it started dripped everywhere—on my hands, the floor, everywhere. This has never happened to me before. I have not had sex since this bleeding. I have, however had a headache, nausea and fatigue. I know that these are pregnancy symptoms. I also have heard that women can experience something like a period and still be pregnant. Is this true? Thanks.

It is not possible to have a period and still be pregnant. If you had bleeding during your withdrawal week, you can be reasonably sure that this bleeding was your period, even though it was a little heaver than usual. That can happen from time to time.
Also, if you've been taking the pill for more than a month and you are taking it as directed, you are very well protected and do not need to worry about a pregnancy risk.
If you're still worried, though, you can also just take a pregnancy test.
