Period 9 days late desperate for help!!

Hi ladies

I'm a bit confused at the moment, I was suppose to have my period on the 5th January and it's now the 14th day (nine days later) my last two periods were normal and I started when I was suppose to on the period calendar, I see that I have a 35 day cycle. I'm experiencing the following symptoms and I'm sorry if it's a bit too much information. I have period pain (like you would get before it comes) my thighs are cramping a bit and it feels as if my private part is pressured a bit (hard to explain) and also usually when I check my cervix when I'm almost due for my period it feels low and firm like the tip of your nose, but since yesterday afternoon when I feel it it feels high and soft, at one stage I couldn't even reach it nicely, and sometimes it might come a bit low but still feels soft (the opening feels like the tip of a pen)

I'm just a bit confused and was wondering if anyone else experienced this before? Could my period just be running late perhaps?

If you had unprotected sex, you could be pregnant. If you had sex and the birth control method you used failed, you could be pregnant. If your period is late and/or you are experiencing symptoms, take a home pregnancy test or go see your doctor.

There are many reasons that could cause a late period... stress, diet, pregnancy, etc.
We can't tell you what is going on with your body.

The only way to rule out pregnancy is to obviously buy a test.
Aside from that, missed periods can be quite common, especially if there has been a disruption in your life recently, or if you have had a baby. If you are genuinely worried, talking to your doctoe may be your best bet.
