Hi, I had my period last month on Jan 26 2010 I had sex before this period (unprotected) after my period was done a week later I was very sick for 3 days throwing up almost every hour the first night. I was on birth controll but een off of it for a month but periods have always been on time 28 days it is now 6 days late my breast feel tender and get a little cramps for a second every now and then but nothing major. What can be the cause of this? Am i pregnant?

Have you had unprotected sex anytime AFTER your period? If not, then a menstrual period indicates that you do not have a viable pregnancy...you could not be pregnant and have a menstrual period.

If you stopped taking your birth control pills a month ago, this can cause irregular periods. Plus, having been recently ill can slightly throw off a cycle. It sounds like you are having PMS symptoms, so I'm sure your period is on its way.

I have had unprotected sex after my last period and after I was ill. I know most people don't have periods while they are pregnant so does it matter that I had unprotected sex a couple days befor my last period can I get pregnant from that and it period just ran its course?
