The pain is sharp, comes out of no were like a knife and its so unbearable I have to lay down for a while to let it subside... and i haven't received my period this month its been a week... could I be pregnant ???
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Withdrawal method/pullout method of contraception is associated with highest failure rates. The absence of periods and your symptoms could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. The exact cause can only be made out after examination and investigations. If pregnancy is suspected (especially if periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates), a serum/blood HCG level done would help to confirm/rule out pregnancy. Visit your gynecologist/obstetrician soon for further evaluation. Look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest.
