Should I be worried about pregnancy?

I am on the mono-Linyah birth control. The last time I had sex was March 2nd, a condom was used as well, however there was worry that it broke so I also took plan B. My period came the expected week and lasted from the 19th to the 23rd. It was heavy with a lot of clots. I started my new pack on the 24th of March. Then on the 26th of March I lost my pill. Called my doctor, they had me take the next days pill, after that I took the last active pill so that way my pills are still in order. So I will end up being short the last day of the pill. For this reason I have completely refrained from sex, making March 2nd the last day I have had sex and March 19th-23rd was my regular menstrual cycle. However, Currently I have noticed some tender breasts. I have also had cramping or sharp pain in my abdomen, however I feel this could be due to my IBS. I have also felt bloated but also could feel this could be due a weight gain from poor eating habits the past few months. I have also had an increase in discharge. All this being said, is there any reason I should be worried about a pregnancy given that I had previously had my period last month and have refrained from sex this month?

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing!

There should be no risk of pregnancy from what you have said. Your cramping and pain is common with IBS so I agree this is likely the case.
If you still have concerns, a pregnancy test will ease your mind.
