well it might not have been your period

could have been spotting or implanation bleeding even

some women bleed throughtout their entire pregnancies like they are haveing a normal period

if you have been haveing unprotected sex then you could be pregnant
or maybe stress is just causing your period to be late?

stay calm and relax girl!!! dont get all stressed out ok?

have you been trying to get preg?

Yes. On the 24th you could have had implantation bleeding, did it seem like a lighter shorter period than normal? Either way it wouldn't hurt to test if you feel worried about it. Did you use protection?

Your periods sound irregular. This can be common in a lot of women. I know I am generally 2-4 days late every month. Don't stress. You haven't had sex, it is highly unlikely you've had an immaculate conception. Wink

its probably late because you're stressing out. you can either wait and see if your period comes or go and see your local doctor

nope sometime the hcg takes a while to increase in your system, although a very very small amount is always present thats why alot of women dont even know they are pregnant in the beginnin because few have those symptoms

Welcome to my world Smile
I hadn't had sex since 29th of December. And had a normal period in January which finished on the 11th. I haven't had sex since my last period.

Here I am 7 weeks later and 7 weeks pregnant. After only coming off the pill for 2 months due to my period getting a bit out of whack, I never expected to conceived. I used a condom and apparently it can take up to 6 months to conceive after coming off the pill.

This is my first pregnancy. I thought I was just getting menstrual cramps, because I generally get them really bad, but this was on another scale - other symptoms including bad migraines, peeing alot and feeling faint. After my period was 2 weeks late I took a test that came out positive and was at my GP's the next day. Due to the pain that I described she sent me to ED to get an ultrasound as she was worried it could be ectopic.

Thankfully this was not the case, however I do have what's called a Blighted Ovum. This is where the gestational sac grows and develops and as far as the body is aware is developing a foetus. However there is no yolk or foetal pole and I'll be miscarrying bub at about 12 weeks.

Long story short, yes you could be pregnant and yes you could be miscarrying. I had sex 2 weeks before my egg was fertilised and this was after a period.
However know that this may not be true, but due to your conditions - namely the pain - I wouldn't hesitate in trying to see your GP, or if the pain gets enough definitely duck down to Emergency to make sure you and your potential bub are okay.
