cramps without period

I am experiencing period like cramps for the past few days and i am not due to have my period untill next week (11th jan) my last period finished on the 19th dec.  I was on 5 day course of antibiotics which ended on the 20th dec.  I am on the pill.  I had unprotected sex on the 26 and 28 of dec. I am aware that antibiotics affect the pill and that extra protection must be made for 7 days after stoping antibiotics but i had sex 6 days afterwards and i wasnt protected my a condom.  I have looked at other websites that tell me that period like cramps are an early sign of pregnancy and i am quite worried as i have never experienced period like cramps without a period before.  I doubt my period will come (if it does) untill i am due next week because my periods are always regular.  I do not have anyother symptoms.  I really need someones help as i have tried other forums with no luck and i would be very very greatful if someone could help me and let me know if this cramping is normal or if i could be pregnant.  Please some one help me as i am quite worried

in january i had 2 periods. one in the beginning, and one close to the end.  but this month ( early feb. ) my boyfriend came inside me without any protection.  now its goign on a week  of major cramps. cramps even in the middle of the night, waking me up. ive never had these bad of cramps with no period.  the second i began to cramp up, that day or the next i always start.   i dont know if im pregnant. from what ive been reading it seems there is a possibility i could be.  the thing is im not sure if i should wait till next month to test, or the end of this month, since thats when i would normally start my period.  it is now the 26th of feb.  should i wait till the end of this month or the end of next month?

LATER I RESEARCHED THAT THAT WAS A MYTH. [14 DAYS THING] THE SITE THAT TOLD ME IT WAS A MYTH SAID...MOST WOMAN OVULATE 12-16 DAYS BEFORE EXPECTED PERIOD...WELL I HAD SEX THOSE DAYS TOO. I DID A LITTLE "AM I PREGNANT" QUIZ ON THE COMPUTER AND THE RESULT WAS I WAS LESS THAN 10% PREGNANT....SO CAN SOMEBODY PLEASE TELL ME WHAT'S GOING ON WITH ME?!? I GIRL HAS TO KNOW, IF THERE'S A LITTLE HUMAN IN HER, OR IF SHE'S EXPERIENCING ONE HELL OF A FOOD BABY!!!

its 14-16 days after your period.  but sperm can live up there so it can last,, i dont remember how long, so you need to educate youself rather than going by websites with "myths"

this isnt funny if your pregnant. your young. and this is a serious matter if you are pregnant.

if your late, one would think to take a test.

always use protection!

Hi all, looks like a lot of people are in the same boat as me. Had a period that started on the 21st June and had inprotected sex on the 11th and 13th day afterwards. I have irregular periods but on average they are 30 days in length and for the past two weeks or so ive had period-like cramps but no period. Have felt a little sick and nauseous but not much. Breasts feel heavier but not sore.
Im unsure whether it could be a sign of pregnancy. Does anyone think it could be?

I am also unsure when to take a HPT but the maximum length of my cycle that i have recorded is 33 days so i think i'll wait til then to test.

Anyone else in the same boat?
