I was suppose to have my period on December 18, and I still have not gotten it. I have been having painful stomach cramps for 5 days now. They come and go and are concentrated by my belly button, but not my appendix. I can go like an hour without having a stomach pain but then it comes back full blown. Sometimes when I get the stomach pain I have to use the restroom, and when i do its diarrhea (though its not as frequent as the stomach pain). I do not have health insurance so I am trying to figure out what this could be and if I should go to the Emergency room.

Delay in period and cramping are the early signs of pregnancy. Please once visit the doctor.

Well, a home pregnancy test could be a far less expensive way to confirm pregnancy but very painful stomach cramps and diarrhea for 5 days is quite concerning (pregnancy aside).
