Pregnant or Paranoid/Ovulation?

my period last came around 25th - 26th of Jan and am due to be on my period this week coming.
I last had sex 5th of feburary.
The sex was protected, penetrative and he did not ejaculate (it was too painful and so had to end prematurely).
Prior to penetration there was foreplay and I'm not 100% sure whether any pre-ejaculation touched me.
There was no penetration without a condom on.

My concerns began when I started to feel very bloated the following week, followed by gassiness and loss of appetite the week after.
Discharge was very heavy the proceeding week, clear, white, stretchy mucus like.
Then generally wet discharge.
Now the discharge is yellow in nature and still stringy/mucus like.

I have experienced sharp pain in my right side (front and back) and have had a lot of gas and lower abdomen pain.
With a week before my period is due, I'm extremely anxious. I did all the precautionary methods.
The anxiety is likely, as I know, to cause my period to be later. I know the best way to check is to do a hPT but i would like to rationalise the anxiety I'm feeling - is it justified (is it likely I am pregnant) or am I just panicking?

Thank you

Welcome to ehealthforum

Since you had protected intercourse chances of pregnancy are rare.The symptoms which you are having might be Premenstrual symptoms which have increased due to the stress and anxiety.
It is very difficult to comment at this stage without examining you.Even a urine pregnancy test would not be confirmatory.You will have to wait for the periods.Kindly see a Gynaecologist for evaluation.

Take Care!
