Is she pregnant?

Patient

Q: Me and my girlfriend have had sex twice (we're really trying to keep it to a minimum for risk of pregnancy). She is on birth control and I have worn a condom both times and I am about 99% sure that they never tore or ripped. The last time we had sex was less then a week ago. She started experiencing symptoms about 2 or 3 days ago such as frequent urination, bloating, back aches, headaches, tender breasts, sore feet, she vomited once, and she has been very drowsy. We are terrified that she is pregnant. I feel like it is too early to be experiencing these symptoms (at least all of them). She is due for her period in 4 days although she has very strange cycles thus why she was prescribed birth control. She says she has never had PMS like this before so she doesn't think it's that. She wants a child very badly but knows she has to wait and now she is terrified. I just would like to know what the chances are that she is pregnant? I am panicking and extremely stressed.
