Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
The chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled as suggested by your symptoms (delayed periods, feeling sick, abdominal pain, backaches, headaches, breast tenderness) if you had been sexually active without protection during your fertile days/ovulation time. If you suspect pregnancy, look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy. 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). Consider being in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.

Active User, very eHealthy
Not sure why you were having to wait if you were 6 days late. You should have been able to test by then. So are you pregnant?
