I'm 3days late to come on my period. My breats have been sore and my nipples have been really tender. I have an achey sensation in my stomach but still no period. Me and my partner have been having unproctected sex. I've been off the pill for nearly 3months now. Could I be pregnant.

Hello Anonymous,

It is very possible that you might be pregnant. Wait at least four more days and take a home pregnancy test. Follow the directions carefully to avoid a false result. It is important to test with the first urine of the morning. So, when you wake up, test first thing.
