honestly can't remember if we used contraception or not.

User Profile
Hi, so the last time I had sex was on June 6th. I got my period on June 19th and ended on the 26th. I then started using birth control on that following Sunday, the 28th as I was told to by my doctor. I have recently been very stressed out lately, I sometimes very feel nauseous, but it comes and goes. I have also been very hungry all the time and at the most random times, I'm constantly tired. I've been getting a little bit of cramps, and have been feeling very bloated lately(almost everyday) and I have missed a few of my pills. The last time I had sex, I honestly can't remember if we used contraception or not. My period is pretty late. I'm pretty concerned. I'm just not sure if I'm just experiencing pre-period symptoms or something else. Please help me.

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out.

If you have missed more than three pills and have been having unprotected intercourse then chances of pregnancy are there.

To check the status of your pregnancy you can get it checked by doing a home based urine for pregnancy test. The test can be positive anywhere from about 2-3 days prior to a missed menses to 4-5 days after, but usually it should be done 7-10 days past your missed period.

Otherwise you can get a serum HCG also done which is more specific than urine pregnancy test.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and
