Hello and I hope I can help you today.

Breast tenderness, crampong and spotting can be symptoms of pregnancy. It also can happen if you just have an abnormal period... When your period comes late you can feel very hormonal as well. However there is no way to be sure without doing a urine pregnancy test.

I suggest you do a home test and if it is negative

I'm sure that if that is true in a few days your full cycle will come back.

I hope that I have adequately answered your question and best wishes, Dr. Brown
