Hi there,

During intercourse sometimes condoms can come off but not every time this leads to pregnancy.

The symptoms you have at present are from what you say normal during your period but again these symptoms can also be present during the first stages of pregnancy.

Best advice to you is to attend your physician or family planning centre and have a pregnancy test done . Or you can buy a home testing kit from your local pharmacy so that you can carry out the test yourself without anyone else knowing.
This way you can be sure one way or the other. However if you carry out a home pregnancy test and the result is negative you really should see your physician just to be sure as some home kits can give false readings.

Good luck and best wishes.
