How many days late are you?

Did he ejaculate inside you?

Have you taken a pregnancy test?

Has your period ever been late before (unrelated to pregnancy)?

the cramps and discharge you describe could very well be your impending period.

If you are more than a day or two late with your period, a higher sensitivity pregnancy test should be accurate by now.

I'm about 18 days late. No he didn't, he pulled out he finished by hand... I've never been late before. And I haven't taken a pt yet.

Take a trip to the local grocery store and pick up a Home Pregnancy Test, as a place to start. They're quite accurate, especially after you miss a period. First Response or Clear Blue Easy are highly rated. If it's negative, then there are other reasons why you can miss you period, such as not ovulating that particular month, stress, illness, etc. I hope this helps.

Well, if you are 18 days late a pregnancy test will definitely be accurate. It is good he pulled out. While not the most reliable form of birth control, if done correctly it is pretty effective in preventing pregnancy. Good luck.
