Am I pregnant?

Hi. Im a 20 year old girl and its been about a month or so that I have lost my virginity. I had sex with my boyfriend about 11 days after my cycle started. We used a condom but eversince we had sex that day I've been freaking out about being pregnant and i constantly think Okayy um what if I dont get my period . I should get my period 9-11 days from now. On day 15 while I was at the gym I felt painful cramps and then i felt something coming out of me . When I checked it was some sort of semi white, thick discharge. And I live in a country where its kind of not okay to have sex before marriage and the thought of being pregnant is freaking me out both because of the social pressure and the fact that im too young for that kind of thing. And another thing is that i cant really go take pregnancy tests or to gef an abortion. Also im not having breast tenderness or nausea or mood swings. Im just randomly freaking out. So is there a possibility for me to be pregnant or not?

So, here is how it all works for most girls timing wise.  The first day of your period is cycle day 1.  You begin counting from there.  You get pregnant at any time during your cycle but the 'fertile window' usually starts around day 10 and lasts about a week.  So, day 11 of your cycle was in the fertile time frame.  Sperm can live for up to a week inside of you is why the window is so large.  However, you used a condom!!  That's great and keep doing that.  Unless there is a condom failure, it should protect you against pregnancy and std's.  Remember, when you are young, it is very common to be irregular!  AND, stress can also impact things.  If you feel you are too young or this is to nervous making for you, hold off on continuing to have sex.  Don't get pressured into it.  Also, just for information purposes, symptoms of pregnancy do not start immediately.  It takes a while to have enough hormones in the system to cause the symptoms.

I personally would be shocked if you were pregnant so would not worry.  good luck
