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.

It could just be your hormones fluctuating from the discontinuing of the pill, but you should check with a preg. test. Use the first urine of the morning for more accuracy. I had cramping with both of my pregnancy's but it subsided after a few weeks. It's those nasty hormones, again. Good luck to you and How long since your period was due?

Well, hard to say unless you take a test. But if you had unprotected sex after you quit taking the pill it's possible. How long have you been off the pill? It could also be your stress, too.

Best of luck to you. I'm sure things will work out either way. If it's negative in the morning, you may wait a few more days and retest if your period hasn't began.  Keep us posted. This is a wonderful support forum.

I have the same thing cramps, tender breasts, bloating 2.5 weeks late, sweating and have taken a bunch of preg tests and am neg. YES you can be preg as i did not show up on the pee test until i was almost 2.5 months late with my first child. Its hard if you have been trying w/o success to wait to find out. I feel like i am preg now and hope to be but with lots of stress that cabe a factor..
