I'm assuming that you are worried about the possibility of pregnancy, because you had unprotected sex since your last menstrual period? "Unprotected" meaning no use of condoms or hormonal birth control...is this correct?

If so, anytime you have unprotected sex, than yes, there is a chance of pregnancy. Women have late, or even miss an entire period, for no "apparent" reason, and this can be normal. A primary reason, however, for missing a period is due to pregnancy, so you may want to take a home pregnancy test to confirm/rule out your concern of pregnancy. The HPT are about 99% accurate at detecting any pregnancy hormones once you have missed your expected period.

Also...most women do not have "pregnancy symptoms" until they are much further along (5-6 weeks into the pregnancy), and any symptoms women experience during the time of their expected period are too similar to differentiate if the particular symptom (bloated, irritable, cramp, back ache, headache, sore breasts, acne, etc) is attributable to an upcoming menstrual period or due to pregnancy. That is the long story way of telling you that whether you are having symptoms or not, they are not a reliable indicator of pregnancy or not-being-pregnant.

Please let us know the results of your home pregnancy test, and we can help answer any additional questions you have!
