My Period Is 5 Days Late with Nausea & Headaches

Sherry (age 24) writes, “My period is 5 days late at this point Ive been having lower back ache not constantly but off and on for about two weeks, I’m not on any form of birth control I hate to admit, but the only “form” of birth control is withdrawal. I do have nausea but it is not uncommon for me since i usually get that a week before my period but no period and still nausea and been having headaches like crazy for about the past two weeks

Hey Sherry,

Have you ever been pregnant before? How frequently have you had sex over the past month or so? Did your boyfriend indicate not withdrawing in time? Have you ever experienced an irregular menstrual cycle in the past?

  2. I’m 20 years old and have one child that is 2 me and my fiance want another one and have been trying. Well my period was supposed to start march 5th and I have been having alot of headaches. I finally started spotting a little on the 13th of march not a normally period for me at all. It lasted maybe 3 days. And now its gone. I have been sick feeling every now and then during the day and right before I lay down for bed. as soon as I lay down and get comfortable I’m out. I have been feeling so tired like I have not been getting enough sleep. could I be pregnant?

    My name is Bre’Ann. i am 20 years old. back in otcober of 2011 i had a tubular (ectopic pregnancy where the fetus grows and develops in the fallopian tubes instead of the uterus) i had bled out for 3 1/2 weeks then found out i was pregnant and lost the baby 2 days later. i had surgery because of it and now i only have 1 fallopian tube. i am 6 days late for my period to start. i am experiencing nausea, vomiting, frequent urination, tender and sore breasts, breasts have been increasing in size, constantly tired all the time, constipation, frequent migraines, certain smells of fragrance or food makes me want to vomit, seeing or hearing certain things makes me want to vomit, have lower back pain. i am experiencing all those things and i am concerned whether i could possibly be pregnant or not.
