hi,
im 5 days late on my period, well it will be 5 days tomarrow to be exact! im never late on my period & if so, its only been by a day. im very anxious to know if i may be pregnant. the last time i had sex was on the 27th of febuary, an the day before that. my llast period came on the 20th of febuary but was supposed to arrive on the 18th. i spotted on the 18th, then my perod didnt come untill two days later. however, the only pregnancy symptoms i am feeling are-fatigue* tired way more than usual, i find my self sleepong 3 or 4 times during the day & i never sleep in the afternoon. i feel as if im very weak or lazy.-loss of appetite, i hardly eat anything because im too lazy to get up and fix anything & i eat once a day and never really get hungry after that,-moody, i seem to get very angry and irritated at just about everything. and sore nipples. also weird unusal pains in my stomach that i've never experienced before.am i pregnant? & should i wait another week to test?

Hello and welcome to eHealth forum!

If you are already five days late, then take a test and see. If the pregnancy test is negative then consult a gynecologist to rule out PCOD or thyroid disorders or hormone imbalance as the cause of your symptoms. Hope this helps. Take care!
