You can go for a urine pregnancy test to check whether you are pregnant or not as these signs are seen in early pregnancy.

As of now, you can take analgesics like Mefenamic Acid for symptomatic relief.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi. I am 18 and had unprotected sex for the first time last april 6. He did not finished inside of me for we only did it in a span of less than 3 minutes. He came outside of me, away and far from where my vagina is. I should have my period now for i had it on the 18-23ish of march last month. But it still hasn t come. i am NOT experiencing: Nausea, headaches, strong aversion to some odor, spotting. Nipples are sore and mild cramping (I usually experience this right before my period is about to come or when i am having it). My friend told me that having sex for the first time delays the period and that worrying and stressing about it adds up to the delay and yes, i am dead worried and stressed about it. Could it be contributing to the delay?
