Is this normal? Am I pregnant?

Hi there, I hate to come here and say this, but I have no other choice because I have myself drove insane, and my anxiety level is so bad, and i'm a HUGE worrier, over everything. I am 18, turning 19... I weigh 240 pounds so i'm slightly on the heavier side.

I've been on birth control now for over four years, the reason I got on birth control was because I never used to have a period, only once a year and the doctor put me on birth control to regulate my periods.

I've had a regular period ever since.

Anyways, About a week before I was suppose to come on my period, I've been finding my back (which I have in the past but its never lasted so long) i've tried everything to help my back to get better, nothing works. So now my back is better, but whatever that was in my back, is NOW gone in my hip, So I am finding my hip right now super bad as well.
I haven't had sex in about two months, and i'm on birth control for over FOUR years now, and i've NEVER skipped a pill in my entire life since being on them. Me and my boyfriend as had sex and he's NEVER ever cumed in me either, he ALWAYS pulls out because I am scared still. This month, I came on my period on a Sunday, and I had cramps and everything like normal. But I noticed my period is dark brown, with some small clots into it... I had cramps normally, and I was off again by Wednesday... all my period was, brown. which it's never happen to me before. (I've been stressed out A LOT this past month as well more then ever before)

Also, since i've been off my period my feet have been peeling over as well, i've always had dry feet, I don't know if its a quiescence or not. But they're been peeling over JUST on the sides (I have hard skin there)

My question is, Am i pregnant?
I'm on birth control, i've never skipped a pill in my life, and my boyfriend as never ever cummed in me ever in my life, and I haven't had sex in over two months. I've always had a regular period up until this month, it last for about 3 and half days, and it was BROWN, and i didn't even need to wear a pad barely, I only saw it when I wiped myself.

If I am not pregnant, is this normal for this to happen to me, maybe its where i've been stressed out?
Please get back to me, i'm super worried.

Hello, Anon. Thank you for writing.

In order to get pregnant, ejaculate must enter you to fertilize an egg (during ovulation). This did not happen (according to you). You are also on birth control which protects you from pregnancy every day. There is no unsafe day in that respect. Even with full intercourse, there is only about a 1% chance of pregnancy. So the risk is very small.

Stress, among other things, can impact your period, even on the pill. Your period will likely go back to normal with the next cycle. If not, mention this to your GYN.
