Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you have been sexually active without protection (especially around the fertile days/ovulation time), the symptoms and the delay in periods, could be suggestive of early pregnancy. If pregnancy is suspected, look out for development of any new symptoms suggestive of pregnancy. Wait and watch for your next periods. If periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Consider being in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
