If your on the birth control that is supposed to give you only 3 periods a year, then your chances are low. If your not on that birth control, only have 3 periods a year, then yes, you can become pregnant. There is always a chance of pregnancy and STD's when having sex, protected or otherwise.

If your thinking that you might be pregnant, you need to take a pregnancy test and then see a doctor to discuss your options and get the pre-natal care you need. The only way to know for sure is to take a test. If your not pregnant, then I suggest seeing a doctor to confirm your irregular periods and to get on birth control so another mistake like this isn't made.

If you naturally only get your period 3 times a year, I would say yes, that will definitely effect your chances of getting pregnant. In order to get your period, you have to ovulate, your period will follow around 14 days after ovulation unless you're pregnant of course. When you do get your period, it seems like it takes you 2.5 months to ovulate, then getting your period 2 weeks after.
Have you spoken to a doctor about your cycles? It can be something called PCOS. (Polycystic ovarian syndrome) which causes you not o ovulate on a regular basis. It also can and usually causes a lot of abdominal pain. You may also ask about Endometriosis. I would suggest speaking to a doctor if you haven't yet.

Consulting your doctor at this point would be something that I suggest. It could be pregnancy or your body's hormones acting up. That is what I suggest and judging by the other posts, it is what is being suggested a lot.

It can feel like that and some women don't get that feeling. So, a doctors appointment is called for in this case. Maybe even an at home test might be good, but then again, it can't tell you what is good for you to do if you are pregnant.
