Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you are having functional ovaries then the regular periods would suggest that you were having regular and periodic ovulation. If you had been sexually active without protection close to your ovulation time, chances of pregnancy are possible. The symptoms that you describe (sore breasts, abdominal bloating, heartburn, frequent urination) could suggest pregnancy possibility. Wait and watch for your periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. 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). 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.
Take care.
