HI, I just started my period today, but i am getting symptoms i dont normally get. I've been having headaches for the last 4 days and lower back aches. Also i have been very tired for the last week i sleep all day and have trouble getting up in the morning i have to force myself to stay awake at work. My breast are usually very tender right before i start and now i have none. I had sex on the day i was ovulating (protected) but the condom broke and he kept hitting my cervix during which had never happened before. could i be pregnant? i am so very confused.

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Symptoms of headache, low backpain, increased tiredness, increased sleep, tender breasts, could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. See if your periods are normal in flow and duration. Unprotected sex/condom failure during your ovulation time would lead to pregnancy. You should have considered taking ECP (emergency contraceptive pill) within 48hours of the sexual contact to remain protected against pregnancy. Look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy. If you suspect to be pregnant, visit your doctor/gynecologist for further examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
