Abdominal Cramps and No Period yet

Hello,
Starting from 17th of July i had 3 times protected sex. On the 27th i felt little cramps then they were gone. Now a couple of days i am having really sharp abdominal cramps and pain. My period is due tomorrow. But I always have a long cycle never 30 days it is like 35-37 days. My breasts are very tender as well. I know that without birth control pills its not hundred percent safe. So i am afraid. Do you think those symptoms can be related to pregnancy?

If you took your birth control pills as you should, very very very likely not pregnancy. You control the effectiveness of the pill by how well you follow the instructions and heed the warnings.

Your periods should also come in your inactive pill week, not after 35-37 days. When you are on the pill, your normal cycle stops and the pill controls your body. If you are new on the pill, this can also be just normal side effects. These may stay or go away after a few packs.

If you are workied, see your doctor.

Firstly, thanks for the answer. Actually what i meant by protected sex was condom unfortunately not the pills because i quit the pills with my doctors suggestion one year ago. Thats why i am now worried about pregnancy.

Sorry, my bad. I misread. Condoms are still pretty safe as long as you check them for tears afterwards. If you do not get your period by the 7th, take a pregnancy test. Repeatit 7 days later to make sure.

Best of luck!

Millions and millions and millions of women will use birth control pills today without any problems.

Making a statement like that is like saying not to drive in a car today, because you can get in an accident, be injured or even die.

Hello again,
yesterday i went to doctor to have a scan. on the scan, she didnt see anything bad and she said i dont have any cystic syndrome. I had also a pelvic examination (very hurting one). I didnt talk about pregnancy to her at all. Now tenderness of breasts are gone no cramps and i had a heavy period with blood cloths back on 5th of August. I believe that these all shows that i am not pregnant. Do you think so?
