Hi,learhan,first of all it impossible to confirm pregnancy till you miss your period.If you miss your periods then please go for urine pregnancy test to confirm.the symptoms you are having points more towards some infection,so please see a doctor and get treated for it.bye.

welcome to HealthcareMagic
The symptoms you described are of pregnancy but at the same time they can be due to infection especially the cramping pain and increased frequency of urine.If you have stopped pills and after that i guess you might have got periods.But in any case you did not get periods then it is difficult to calculate the days passed and even the expected date of periods.In such a situation just empirically calculate a period of 40 days and if that days have passed after stopping the pill then get a pregnancy test done to find out and confirm if you are really pregnant.
I guess there is no other method or option.If the test comes negative consult a doctor to treat infection in urine if you are not pregnant then it can be second possibility.
