Brief Answer:
Get urine pregnancy test done

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
You can get a urine pregnancy test to rule out any pregnancy.
Regular use of condom is good enough method for contraception.
Stress may be the cause of delayed period or hormonal imbalance.
Persistent pain requires ultrasound evaluation too.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

Ok thanks. I'm just wondering since I gave birth my periods have been 28 day cycle then one day it was 34 days and since 34 days for like 4 months now it's been 23-24 days. Maybe I am pregnant or maybe it's just a delayed period.

Brief Answer:
Delayed periods

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
Yes, it is likely to be delayed periods.
These are the signs of premenstrual phase.
You are likely to get periods in another 5-10 days.

Two days ago I started getting occasional sharp pain inside my right ear and occasional shooting pains in my head, also on the right side. My head feels a little tender in that spot. I also noticed some small, painless lumps on my jaw line under my right ear. I have no idea if they re related to the other symptoms. Any ideas what this could be?

My period is now 16 days late, and it is very regular...I use a menstruation tracker. I have been feeling sick to my stomach, getting headaches, severe backaches, and feeling dizzy. I did take a pregnancy test, but it was negative, so I wasn't too worried because I am on the pill (although there were probably a few times where I forgot to take it and then doubled up the next night). Suddenly today, I started getting severe sharp pains in my lower abdomen (mostly on the left side, but radiating to both sides) and severe pains in my upper abdomen, like I was going to throw up...I feel weak and started to have bright red bleeding, although it isn't heavy. all day today before the pain, I was having brown discharge that had stringy clots in it. I am debating on visiting the ER and wanted to ask your opinion.
