Had unprotected sex 3 days before due period and now, haven't seen my period in 2 days; am I pregnant?

Please can someone advise as I'm freaking out big time.

I am a female in my late 20's; I've always had a 20-25 day period cycle and not once, ever has my period come before or after that bracket - not ever ever! Also, just as additional background, all the females in my immediate family all got pregnant at the age I am right now.

I had unprotected sex 3 days before Day 25 of my period cycle, today is currently Day 27 and I haven't seen my period. I know it's too early to presume but I'm losing my mind because I've had prolonged PMS symptoms for (which usually starts 2-3 days before my period and is gone after Day 2 of my period). On the last possible day i was to have my period (day 25), the PMS and cramps were at a new level high that left me really exhausted, in pain and miserable. They alleviated at Day 26, and today (Day 27), I'm feeling miserable again, and still not a drop of blood; not even spotting!

Could I be pregnant? Please advise! Thank you

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for your post.

There is always some risk when you have unprotected sex. You can test for pregnancy 14-21 days after sex. Try to relax and wait for your period to arrive. Stress can delay your period.
