I'm almost certain I'm pregnant.

Today is December 20th, and on December 4th my boyfriend came over.
We were about to have sex but he didn't have a condom so I told him not to put his penis in, but by then when I told him to stop his efforts, his penis had already touched the entrance of my vagina. There was pre cum on his penis.
I'm still a virgin, but I'm almost certain I'm pregnant, and we've broken up now so I don't want to tell him for fear that he won't believe me considering we didn't actually have sex.
I don't want him to think I'm trying to trap him.
The week following the day he came over I was really nauseous but i figured it was due to break up anxiety, the week after that I was extremely bloated and I still am, followed by lower back pains and lower abdomen pains. A few days ago, 15 days after the contact with pre cum I started bleeding, but it wasn't period blood it was lighter, and it only lasted for a day.
I want to take a test but all the research I did said I should wait until my missed period.
Naturally some months I don't get a period but if I do it should come in a week, my periods are always at the end of the month. I'm also experiencing headaches and dizziness. My friends think that me knowing the symptoms of pregnancy and being paranoid over them is causing me to experience them. I'm terrified.

Editor's Comment

It sounds as though some of your symptoms are caused by anxiety. Pregnancy nausea does not usually start until about 6 weeks of pregnancy, and back pain and abdominal pain can be caused by softening and stretching of ligaments but again that is not usual in the first couple of weeks. It is best to wait until the day of your period and if you do not start your period on that day, you could do a pregnancy test to check. You can buy a pregnancy test at the pharmacy, or go to a young people's clinic, or a pregnancy centre for a free pregnancy test.
