Feeling sore in the vaginal or pelvic area can occur, especially if your parter was overly rough or you were not adequately lubricated. If you are wondering it these are signs of pregnancy- normally classic pregnancy symptoms don't begin until you have actually missed your period or thereafter. Symptoms can include: lack of period, nausea, vomiting, frequent urination, feeling moody, fatigue, swelling or pain of breasts, mild cramping, headache, insomnia, etc. You didn't mention if you used any form of birthcontrol. Having sex should not be a cause for a late period in a female who is not pregnant. ...Read more
