Can I be pregnant and still get my period?


Q: I had gotten fingered on the 15 of March, and I was wondering if I could get pregnant from this. I had just started birth control for about five days before that happened. My boyfriend didn't cum... Although pre cum had gotten on my hands, and a very small amount of it too. I didn't touch myself but he adjusted the base of his penis and started fingering me again. Can sperm travel from hand to hand?I got my period right about on time, the 5th of April, and the last month I had started it on the 5th of March. I was on my placebo week and the first day I was kind of spotty and the rest was a normal period. It lasted for five days. I'm only concerned because I heard some women have enough bleeding durning pregnancy so it seems like a period. I had moderate cramping the second day with back pain and abdomen pain. I'm just scared i might be pregnant because I'm still a tiny bit bloated and I have been having headaches and my boob doesn't hurt, just the under part is a tad bit sore. But I'm not sure because I've heard that birth control can do that also.

Symptoms:  Bloating, headaches
