One week before my period, I had light spotting and a few on and off clots. My period was supposed to start today, but it still hasn't happened. I also have mild cramping, painful breasts, nausea, and a horrible taste in my mouth. What could be happening?

Answer

The most likely reason is that you're gearing up to start your period. However, if you've recently had unprotected sex, then the next best possibility is early pregnancy symptoms! If you haven't started your cycle yet, then I would take a pregnancy test because today would be your official "late" day.
