Could I be pregnant or is it just anxiety and freaking out?

My bf and I have had sex, at first without a condom but about half way through we'll put one on. I'm on birth control (Levora) and take it pretty regularly every day. But since we were on vacation, I skipped the inactive pills at the end of the month and went straight into the next pack to skip my period. Does that make a difference with preventing pregnancy? I have super bad anxiety so I worry constantly. I've heard that your mind can make you think you're pregnant and give you symptoms if you think you are. Ever since the thought of me possibly being pregnant I've noticed symptoms like upset stomach (but I usually get that with the anxiety) and a few cramps (I'm due for my period next week, so that might be it?). Could it be possible that I'm just making the symptoms up in my head??
(also, I don't know if it matters but I have shown signs of having endometriosis)
Skipping the inactive pills and going straight to the next pack will not lessen the effectiveness of your birth control. You are still protected, no worries! It is okay to do this 2-3 times a year. Not sure why you bothered to use a condom half way through because condom use while on birth control pills is not for contraceptive purpose (the Pill does that) it is for STD protection and once penetration has occurred, it is a bit late for STD protection.
