Hello, I'm 20 yrs old and always had irregular periods


Q: Hello, I'm 20 yrs old and always had irregular periods ever since I was on birth control. I Stopped taking it 6-9 months ago and they seem to have gotten regular. I would receive it on the day i had it the month before, give or take a day occasionally. Until last month, I was supposed to get it on the 30th of April... instead I got it on the 5th of may. I was extremely stressed so i assumed that was why it was late. 3 days after my period ended (may 13th) me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex, he usually pulls out but this time didn't and he said there was a lot. If i understand the cycle that would mean we had sex on the 8-9thth day of my cycle? Around may 24th I had some stuff I was dealing with and became extremely emotional which isn't like me at all. I also may have been stressed from my vacation I was going on. I didn't receive my period on the 5th of this month like I should have, I'm no longer stressed. I have a white milky discharge that feels like I'm going to get/ am getting my period but it's just the milky discharge. Also have some cramping and bloating and I feel full a lot more than usual. I'm having trouble sleeping and often have night sweats. I felt tired/exhausted all the time if I forget to take my adderall, not sure if that is just from the adderall or if it's a symptom of pregnancy. I still get very emotional off and on and like I said, that's not like me. My urine also has had a very strong odor to it the past 3 or 4 weeks but I thought I just had a bladder infection and took some antibiotics and I don't notice it now. My nipples are very tender but not my whole breast, I've never had sore breasts even during my period and my breast size is not increasing that I can notice. The woman i am living with got her period on the same week I should of got mine, I thought that would Make me get mine too. I'm now a week late and not sure if I should take a test or if it even sounds like I could be pregnant. When my periods were irregular I would be late often and take a test and it would be negative so I don't want to go buy one if it's not necessary. Could I be pregnant or am I just paranoid and my period is late because I was stressed for a week or two? With the timing and symptoms what are my chances of pregnancy?
