If you are 5 days late on your due date of periods you have to take urine pregnancy test if you have had unprotected sex.The sore breast ;heaviness in lower abdomen can be signs of pregnancy but the heaviness can be due to impending periods which may be waiting to come.So to get better idea please do urine pregnancy test with the first morning sample of urine.
