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..

I missed my period, which usually starts on the 26th every month. It has been 2 weeks since then. I had some morning sickness, weakness, I felt tired, etc., etc., basically all the signs of pregnancy, but the pregnancy test kept coming negative. Yesterday evening I had bad stomach cramps, similar to the ones that I get when I am about to get my period. Today in the morning I got my period.
I do not know what caused such a delay which has never happened to me before. I am a student and have been stressed with my studies for several years now and nothing like this has ever happened.
Well, this is my story.

I've been having close to the same symptoms. I've been cramping for over a week now, my lower stomach is getting hard, I'm late for my period. I've been off the pill for 2, almost 3 months now. I went to the ER 3 days before I was supposed to start my period &i had a pee test done, it said I wasn't pregnant. They sent me home &told me it was probably the start of my period. Now I am peeing every 2 hours, when I try to lay out my stomach hurts really bad to where I'm only out for 5 mins. So pretty much I'm thinking I could be pregnant after my research I've done. Should I go back to the ER &see if they will try something else like a blood test or something?! Oh, I have had an ovarian cyst before but I had way different symptoms that what I'm having right now. Please help!!! You can email me at ***@**** if you have any answers. Thanks.
