Possibility of pregnancy.

I will be getting an HPT to be sure tomorrow but right now I'm just doing this because if I don't do something I'll go crazy from fear.

'Why so scared?' you might ask. Well I'll tell you. I'm 16 years old. I understand that I messed up and if I make it out of this, I KNOW that I will never EVER have sex again until I am able to take care o-f myself. This terror is too much for me to handle.

So, now that I've gotten through with that, I will tell you that I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend. We used the pull out method. I thought I was safe(ish...) because he pulled out a bit before he actually came. He had to masturbate a little bit to finish up.
Now, somebody's probably going to say that I'm SOL because there's sperm in pre-cum. However, I know that that is not true unless it is left over from a previous ejaculation and he had not masturbated in at least 2 days before we had sex.

So that's that. On to symptoms. Here's the big one: my period is 2 weeks (11 days) late, I've been taking this with a grain of salt because I sometimes have irregular period but this still scares me.
I have heard, though, that a UTI can be the cause of a late period, and since I had recently recovered from a UTI, I attributed it to that at first. But two weeks seems slightly extreme for that to be the sole cause.

When my period was late, I tried taking Vitamin C to induce it, as that is a method I've had success with before (obviously it didn't work this time). I think that may have caused some of my symptoms, but I do not know anything for sure.

Recently, I have experienced the following possible symptoms:
Hunger (although this could be normal)
Food Cravings? (This is definitely a maybe as I really love oranges. But I havee had a taste for them lately)
Cramping in my abdomen--but never in the place I usually get cramps when I menstruate.
Frequent pooping (I think this might be the vitamin C at work)
Dizziness (possibly caused by my stress?)
Increased vaginal discharge.
Slight fatigue (almost definitely caused by lack of sleep due to homework, but worth mentioning, I suppose)
Bloating (this is very on and off. Bloated one hour, not the next)
And just today I noticed blue veins in my boobs when I got out of the shower. There is no tenderness, however, and I think it may be because I am so pale.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

Welcome to ehealthforum

Pull out method is not a safe method and chances of pregnancy are high in this.Even though if pulled out before coming,the preejaculate does contain sperms which are capable of fertilization.
According to the symptoms you have described as missed period,fatigue,cramping in abdomen,dizziness it might be because of pregnancy.Get a Blood HCG test done as it is confirmatory test.Kindly visit a Gynaecologist for correct diagnosis.

Take Care!
