My period came on May 24th and lasted 5 days. I had sex with my boyfriend on June 2nd, and the condom broke 3 times that night that we did sex. Since then, I have been feeling extremely exhausted, urinating a lot, and having hot spells. I am also having a lot of discharge, slightly achy breast, and period-like cramps that's been going on for 4 days now. Let me remind you that today is June 16th, so I don't think I am ovulating at the moment. Do you think I'm pregnant or what do you think is wrong? My boyfriend and I used a condom. As soon as one broke, he slid another one on.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
You are at risk of pregnancy if you have had unprotected intercourse after finishing with your periods, as the time of intercourse gets closer to your fertile days/time of egg release from ovary. The chances of pregnancy resulting from pre-cum/pre-ejaculatory fluid (it is known to contain sperms) cannot be ruled out due to condom failure. You should have considered taking ECP (emergency contraceptive pill) within 48 hours of the sexual contact to remain protected against pregnancy. Your current symptoms could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. Look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy. If you are having symptoms suggestive of pregnancy, or if you do not get your periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you have abnormal period, 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.
