Hello Dr Adberg, Last month my period was a day late

Patient

Q: Hello Dr. Adberg,
Last month my period was a day late and I believed it was due to stress, but this month it was 3 days late and has lasted 8 days which is very out of pattern for me who has had a consistent cycle of 28 days and period for 5 days since I was 12 and I am now 22. Also to mention when me and my partner had sex the next day I had horrible cramps and 9 dpo I took a pregnancy test and it read positive. In addition I've been nauseous and diarrhea off and on. So my question is am I experiencing an early miscarriage or something worse?

Symptoms:  Headaches, abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhea
