late period + abdominal cramps for a week
i've been really worried for the past couple of weeks. my period is late and i've recently stopped using the pill. mainly just because i didn't fill my next prescription because I was swamped with work and school.
For the past week or so i've had abdominal cramps and pains like you would get before your period..but no period has come. I also have very heavy vaginal secretions... which feel like it could be my period.. and I check and it's not.
maybe i should just get a pregnancy test and see for myself, but i was wondering what else it could be before I scared myself with that.

my last period was in december 8th 2010. i started loestrin24 birth controll and stopped it mid cycle after about 5 days due to bad side effects..as soon as i stopped it i got what i thought was a period but didn't last as long as my normal cycle would. I now an experiencing sore tender breasts and a abnormal feeling in my stomach kinda like an aching feeling on and off. i still haven't gotten my period and have had unprotected sex a few times..any ideas?

I will start by saying my husband and I talked for a year about having a baby we have been together for 6yrs married for 3yrs. I have been off the pill for a month and we had unprotected sex... a lot but the past week I have had to pee a lot like every hour, This week is my normal week to start. I am like 3 days late however I am cramping & feel like I am going to start but nothing yet. I want to have a baby but my dr. said it would take 2-3 months off the pill to get prag. but I donno people say you can 3 days after you don't take the pill?

I am two weeks late with my period. I have been experiencing cramps, feeling like my period is coming, I run to the toilet but still nothing! I've done two home pregnancy tests and both were negative! I've just had my bloods taken and am awaiting the results, very nervously! I have been tired, but always am, peeing more, but it's cold. A bit worried about what this could mean. Could this be another problem that I may not have thought of? Has anyone else had this and can offer some advice?

yeah so i had unprotected sex and yes he came inside. so my period was 3 days late and i am very regular (28 days always on time). then i thought i had my period but it was so light and i normally bleed a lot and thick deep red blood, but this time it was so light it wouldnt even fill a tampon and it was very thin and went on an off for like 4 days and out of those 4 days 3 were considered spotting. i took 2 tests one week apart from each other both negative. now i am extremely constipated, very emotional, get tired randomly fall asleep(today in a restaurant!?!?) my belly is hard and warm and i have a weird movement going on in my lower belly and mild dull cramping on and off in my lower abdominal. could the tests be wrong?

so i have been off pill for about -4 months now i was late on my first period and    sept 6 and second october 6th as u can see im around like 16th days late.  expcected period was on nov 6th. I took a pregnancy test a week late came up neg. waited a week took another it was neg but then went in the trash couple hours later and it was positive im almost positive i waited for the full time span def minimun time i waited was 7min and the maximum time was ten. it was a famoly dollar one. i then freaked went out and got a first response digital gold response took it and it came out neg and then waited 4 hrs to make sure my pee wasnt diluted and took another that was neg. do you think the line was just an evaporation line because it was a blue inked one and i heard they did that sometimes. im almost 95 % positive it was neg the whole time span that you could accurately look at it

Hi, can anyone help me?
I just recently got married so we are not trying to concieve just yet, so I started taking the pill a month ago. Well, it's the third day into when i should be having my period, but it still hasn't come. It might just be my body getting used to being on the pill (which is what I am hoping for) I have also taken three HPT. One yesterday afternoon, at night, and first thing this morning. All negative. Then about noon today I started cramping and thought "yes! It came!" but no, i've just been spotting. I don't know if I should wait and take a test in a few days or what.

On a side note, On Jan. 24 (14 days ago) to check on my endometriosis and polycystic cysts, and they would have let me know if I was pregent then. I am just so confused! HELP :)

So I had unprotected sex the 3rd the 4th and the 10th and 19th of this month with my boyfriend. I'm not taking any birth control but we've been using the pull out method, yes, I know it's not the safest. I took a pregnancy test on the 12th because my friend wanted to make sure I wasn't pregnant and it came out negative. I have been getting cramps just like I normally do right before a period but I'm 2 days late. I took a test just yesterday the 22nd and I think it wasn't working because it was very faint and I wasn't sure if it was a positive but I'm considering that it is. I'm wondering whether we got pregnant from the beginning of the month the 10th or 19th? I have never quite understood how the pregnancy tests work. But I'm confused as to why it came out negative on the 12th, it's more of a curiosity thing. I've yet to tell him. I don't know how he will take the news. We will see! Thanks for your help! :)

From my experience, HPT can not be trusted. So many come back negative. I had gotten pregnant last year and had all these symptoms and then some but because all the tests showed negative or the first few weeks I did not go to the doctor because I just figured it was stress. Then I had a test that showed positive and ended up having a miscarriage. The safest bet would be to go to the doctor as soon as any suspricion arises and get a blood test done. Also If you bleed and still "feel" pregnant with the symptoms, you could still be fine. My husband's aunt actually had her period every month through her entire pregnancy. It all depends on how much you bleed, how painful it is, and how long it lasts. But the best way to find out is go to the doctor! :)

Some women may have negative pregnancy test if they do not have enough HCG in their system. Does not mean your not pregnant. If you really want to check and you still have no period get a blood test done.

I am a week late and I've been cramping on and off for two weeks. I have had bad migraines, sore breast, frequent urination, feeling sick and increased appetite.  The weirdest thing is while having intercourse there was pressure which felt like a blockage in my vagina. I know I should just see a doctor but there have been false alarms before. I am 21 and I have never been on bc.

If you have not tried another test I would and if still no answers then call and ask to get a blood test. with all 3 of my children home test did not show up until I was 3 months along or further. I am now 4 days late and having symptoms and a test was a faint line then negative on the next one so I am going in August 1st for a blood test!!

I have been going through the same kind of things. Missed period late by a week or so. CRANKY, I have been more moody then ever, Super sharp craps like it was AF, I had a little blood one day and it was gone the next. Heartburn ALL day long, I eat tums like they are candy, lower back hurting more than normal. And just tired, tired, tired. I feel like I could sleep for days. And I am super hungry for things I don't like!

I had nexplanon removed a few weeks ago. I was on my period at the time and it was actually a normal period. It lasted a whole week though. I calculated the 28 day thing and I was supposed to start on the 4th. Which was a few days ago. Everyone has something different to say. Some people say I could have gotten pregnant as early as a week after the removal. Others say it could take months to get pregnant. My pharmacist told me to wait three months to get pregnant because the hormones from the nexplanon could mess with my baby but my doctor didn't say anything about side effects for the baby. She knows I'm trying to get pregnant. All she said was that it could take a couple of months for my period to get back to normal.
all I know is that I'm cramping and I'm tired all the time. I'm moody and I have been getting hot flashes. I want to have another baby but not if my hormones will hurt it. My doctor would have said something right? So now all I need to know is if all my symptoms are just from my body getting back to normal or from pregnancy. I'll get a test tomorrow but I hate psyching myself out and wasting money on tests. It ***** being a woman sometimes.

This guy i am seeing fingered me 2 weeks ago (a week before my period was due) and it was fine. Then, he c**** into a tissue, a couple minutes later he tried to finger me from behind, but it REALLY hurt. Now, my period is late and I don't know why. He didn't have any sperm on his fingers (since he used a tissue). I am feeling a little nauseous and bloated. But, I have been stressing out over this. What is happening?
