It said "share early pregnancy symptoms"

The comments are not for asking if you're pregnant, people. Seriously. If you've missed your period take a test or go to the doctor or a free clinic. If you are a few days to the missed period, most tests are accurate anywhere from 4-6 days before you miss your period now. Get a test people. Heck, Walmart has tests for 88 cents. That's the cheapest you will find them. If you don't have a Walmart (which most places have one within a 20 minute drive) then try to find a Dollar Tree. Everything is a dollar and those tests are as sensitive as First Response (First Response boasting accuracy up to 6 days before the missed period). Even if you use a condom AND birth control you can get VERY pregnant. I have two step siblings that are proof of that and my step-mom miscarried a third child that was conceived while using both forms of contraceptive. Most early pregnancy symptoms are also PMS symptoms. The mind can make us have symptoms when we don't. Just take a dang test and get the answer.

Cramps, no period, period due in 3 days

Okay so me and my boyfriend have unprotected sex all the time considering that I'm on the pill and the fact that he pulls out. I've had pregnancy scares before where I am in the same situation, but this time I feel is different. I usually get my period 5 days before the previous period of each month. For example, last month I got my period on the 25-26 (not sure) so I knew I'd get my period around the 19-20 of this month. Today is the 21st and I haven't received my period yet!! What makes this pregnancy scare for me different is that I got cramps on the 18 and I was positive I would start but it is now the 21st and no period. I would like some honest answers,thank you.

i am 17 i was pregnant before and my boyfriend forced the issue of me getting and abortion so i did them months after (which is now) im pregnant again its kind of stressing because im anemic and my doctor said it would be hard for me to get pregnant (i also had irregular periods) i guess they didnt know what they were talking about because im sure im having a gorgeous gifted girl and her father is excited but yet still if im still a little stressed because im on scholarship and in collage... may question why i didnt use condoms well im allergic to latex and its hard to find non-latex condoms where i am so take my advice and always go on the after morning pill because withdrawal isnt an option

Hoping, but unsure.

Me and my boyfriend had sex 6 days ago. We have been together for almost 2 years and have had sex many times before and each time he used the "pull out" method, but this last time he came inside me a little then pulled out. It's too early to take any kind of test, but I've been having unexplained cramping (mostly towards the left side), I feel like I need to vomit every night, and things I usually can't get enough of tastes disgusting to me now. I didn't think it was possible for me to get pregnant because I'm overweight... Could I be? I kind of want to be, but I know me and my boyfriend aren't financially stable and we really wanted to be married before we had any kids.
