My period came on July 2nd and lasted 5 days.
My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex on July 15th.
He pulled out and didn't ejaculate but it was during my ovulation period.

I thought I was pregnant because I had some sypmtoms!

My period then came on July 30th which was suprising because it was only 28 days and usually I have cycles ranging from 30-40 days.
It lasted 4 days and was heavy with pretty bad cramps.

Now it's about 3 days since my period ended and I'm cramping with backache and headaches. I feel like I could be pregnant. Is it likely? Could I have miscarried?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you have had unprotected intercourse during your fertile days/ovulation time, then chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out completely. Pullout method is associated with highest failure rates. Chances of pregnancy resulting due to pre-cum is present as pre-cum is known to contain sperms in it. The abnormality in periods could have been an indication of pregnancy. Few women can have period like bleeding during first few months of pregnancy (decidual bleeding). Wait and watch for your next periods. If pregnancy is suspected, look out for development of any new symptoms. If you do not get your periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you develop symptoms suggestive of pregnancy, you should consider visiting your gynecologist for thorough 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.
