Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you have not been regular with your birth control use and have been sexually active without additional protection, chances of pregnancy are possible (as suggested by the recent symptoms of late & lighter periods, increased tiredness, sleep disturbances, abdominal cramps, nausea, headache, back pain, increased vaginal discharge). Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If you suspect chances of pregnancy, or if the symptoms have been persistent, or if your period has been abnormal, 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). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
