Hi, for the past 5 days i have woken up feeling sick to my stomach . All day i will have sharp pains down the sides of my stomach and the area above my vigina.

Chances are very less that you are pregnant with just 3 days delay in periods. Cramps in lower back and legs, besides the stomach indicate congestive dysmenorrhoea (painful periods) and should subside as the bleeding becomes more red and the smell may not be that clean. Still, one cant be 100% sure that its not a pregnancy complication, unless your symptoms subside altogether.

Thanks for the query.

Some amount of dysmenorrhea is common during and also few days before periods.
Severe dysmenorrhea can be seen in case of narrow cervical canal, pelvic inflammatory disease, fibroids etc.
If you are having history of unprotected intercourse around the time of ovulation then there is possibility of pregnancy and in that case the scanty flow you had might be implantation bleeding.
To rule out this possibility you better go for blood test for pregnancy which will give accurate result.
Take care.
