i had vaginal sex 10 days ago, we used a condom because i am on birth control however i have not been taking it properly and have missed a few pills seeing as i wasn't sexually active for some time. he did not ejaculate but yes i know you can still get pregnant from pre ejaculatory fluid. i'm supposed to get my period in 3 days however i've been having menstrual cramps for the past 2 days which usually never happens to me. i've been told cramping is one of the earliest signs of pregnancy? i'm just wondering what else could be causing this?

The only reliable sign of pregnancy is a positive pregnancy test. Cramping can be caused by all sorts of things, and it's possible that missing a few pills could be the culprit here - that can throw your body out of whack a bit. Cramping can also start a few days before a period arrives, so that could also be it (even if you personally haven't experienced it before).

Are you comfortable with the pill as a method of birth control? Condoms offer excellent protection when used properly, but if you want, we can talk about hormonal options you can use in addition to condoms that don't involve taking a pill every day.
