Something's off: I can't tell you what it is, but if i was you, i'd want to make an appointment with a doctor to find out what is happening. Whatever it is, knowing your choices as early as possible gives you the most freedom and likelihood of good results. Don't worry, just get the facts.

Risk: If you had an actual period in April and you haven't had sex since March - then you should not be pregnancy. However, if that bleeding was lighter, it may not have been an actual period. You need to take a home pregnancy test.

Yes: You could be pregnant. You might want to have a pregnancy test in the next week or so, unless you have a normal period during that time.

Anovulation: Yu've experienced a missed cycle. These are most commonly due to anovulation. This occurs when the ovary fails to release an egg. This alters hormonal levels which disrupts the cycle.

Yes, Always: All methods affect odds but never guarantee results. Methods are reported, analyzed as events/odds-by actual rates of occurrence: historic event rates for those sampled and the methods used. However, these are typically reported using the misleading term "risk" which assumes history will repeat itself, future groups match and future issues are identical.

Regarding your comment about being a “worrier”, please keep in mind that we are all worriers because we are fragile creatures and all of life is full of risks. We are all quite aware of this, in various ways, from before birth. Yet the most common mental/emotional defense mechanism for issues we view as too-threatening-to-face and insolvable, in the moment, is Denial (of the obvious). Running away from fears, e.g. male macho behaviors, are a cover, not reality. More effective is recognition (always present at a subconscious level) of the above reality and being constantly prepared to move, change decisions & actions so as to better protect our (and others) interests, always powerfully colored by the amalgam of our life experiences to date. While the denial mechanism often works well, short term, to calm anxiety and preserve our ability to function (often a survival benefit), continuing to adopt it long term about historical events/concerns becomes very maladaptive and often leads to all sorts of dysfunctional behaviors, as observed/judged by others (unaware of our personal history and beliefs). (Gavin deBecker has excellent insight on this topic and reading his books can be extremely helpful.) Many promote that people are illogical and act in irrational ways. This later concept (that humans are commonly irrational), in my experience, is both: (a) essentially always Not True and (b) prevents being an effective problem solver, assistant, therapist working to empower people by opening/regaining awareness of their hidden internal experiences/beliefs and, in turn, better analyzing/responding to both past and especially current+future events in this kindergarten for our Souls, called life. Therefore, work at addressing the bases for your worries. The reason many do not solve their worries more effectively is because they run away from their larger issues, hoping thus just emotionally focusing on smaller ones will work almost as well - it never does.

Yes if no protection: If you were using only the condom for contraception you can get pregnant.
