Doctor

A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.

I understand your concern.
Little bit of irregularity in periods can occur due to many causes.
Usually menstrual cycle with length of 21 days to 35 days should be considered as normal only.
Though little delayed as you got menstrual flow and as urine pregnancy test kit gave negative result, the possibility of pregnancy is less.
Unprotected intercourse can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease which can present with pain, sick feeling, decreased appetite etc.
So, if the pain persists or increases in severity, better to consult your doctor once and get examined.
Clinical examination and ultrasound helps in finding out the cause of the problem and treatment can be planned accordingly.

Take care
