I think I'm about 2 weeks and half along.

My period is now 6 days late. I've been having lower back pain, some cramps, nausea, dizziness, and little headaches since the third of this month which was when i was suppose to start.

I always have clear dischange 3 to 5 days before my period, but the dischange just pretty much stopped last monday, not this monday. And i've never had lower back pain this long before a period. my period always on time, the only time it was like different was 2 months ago, and it came 26 days early. I'm actually not worried, or stressed, so I'm sure its not that. I've read so many things online. Some say it's a late period, and some say it could pregnancy. Now could i be pregnant? if i am, I think I'm about 2 weeks and half along. And if i am, would i have any signs?

also this was not planned at all...so yeah. it's kind of annoying because my boyfriend and i have been very safe. Plus, i have no idea what to do. Lots things going inside my mind.

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Your current symptoms (delayed periods, low back pain, abdominal cramps, nausea, dizziness, headaches, vaginal discharge etc) could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. The appearance of symptoms depends on how your body reacts to the changing hormonal status. It is not necessary that all women should experience symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy. Few women can experience symptoms as early as 24 hours after fruitful intercourse. Few women can experience few symptoms after having missed periods. Few women do not experience any symptoms throughout pregnancy. Do not depend on the appearance of symptoms as indication for pregnancy. Wait and watch for your next periods. If you do not get your periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you develop symptoms suggestive of pregnancy, you should consider visiting your gynecologist for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately).
If pregnancy gets ruled out and if you intend to remain sexually active, consider visiting your gynecologist to get started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after your periods). Be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact.
Take care.
