first off, i'd take a pregnancy test. that way you can rule out whether or not you're worrying yourself about pregnancy for nothing. if you are pregnant, you need to start making some decisions and plans. this will mean you'll need to tell someone. the sooner you know, the more options you have.

but first & foremost, since you've missed your period, go get a test. from there tackle what (if anything) the results give you. don't keep twisting yourself up with "what ifs" and "am i"s!

After 10 days from the last time you had sex, take a pregnancy test if you haven't gotten your period. They're relatively cheap, and it'll ease your mind, even if your period has been delayed because of surgery.
Am I pregnant?

From what I understand an ileostomy is a serious operation and could quite possibly cause a woman to miss her period. Talk to your doctor about your symptoms (illness, skipped period). Getting proper after care after an operation is important.
