I had sore breasts, fatigue, sickness and bloating with gas and then my period started 3 days early and was shorter and lighter than usual. However they stopped and I no longer have bloating constipation, sore breats pain in the bottom of my back(severe) or cramping(severe). I was just wondering what could be up etc and if anyone else experienced this. Any halo would be much appreciated I am only 17 and I am worried there is something wrong ie could I be pregnant. I used a condom but I'm scared it burst due to what has been going on x

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Condoms have failures associated with their use, and the lighter and shorter periods/spotting could suggest probable implantation. The symptoms that you describe (low back pain, abdominal cramps, bloating, constipation, sore breasts) could be few of early symptoms suggestive of pregnancy. Wait and watch for your next periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If your usual periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
