Thanks for the query.
If you had unprotected intercourse, the there is possibility for pregnancy as you didn't took the pills as per schedule and completely stopped one month back.
But just by symptoms we cannot confirm the pregnancy, as these symptoms can be due to withdrawal effects of the pill or can also be part of premenstrual syndrome.
So you better go for pregnancy test once to rule out the possibility.

Take care.

OBGYN Dr. Shanti Vennam's  Response
If you have been sexually active without protection all through, you should definitely exclude pregnancy. You may take a HPT with a fresh early morning sample, or go for a blood test and a sonogram.Other reasons for the delay in the period could be the hormonal imbalances you had in the last month. Your symptoms can relate either to early pregnancy or be pre-menstrual. Please contact your health care provider for further support. Take care.
