Hi ladies,

I have roughly a 26 day cycle, last month it was 25 and every few months I have a 28 day one but more often than not I am on 26 days. I had unprotected sex on cd8, all my usual ovulation pains started around cd 10-12 and I'm on cd 18 now and I'm still having stomach cramps. I had horrendous loose bowels yesterday which I never get and burning sensation in my breasts. Also back ache and I had thick white snot like discharge yesterday but that seems to have gone now. However my stomach is still cramping and I'm not due my period for another 7-10 days. I only ever get af pains a day or 2 before so really not sure if I may be pregnant. I'm not ttc so I'm not looking for things that aren't there but I'm really aware that I have these things happening that's not at all normal for me. Has anyone else experienced these sorts of symptoms and gone on to have a positive pg test?

Didn't want to read and run smile

Are you using contraception?

We didn't on this occasion as I had just finished my af and thought I was safe. It's only when I looked back and tracked my cycles I realised that it may have been 4-5 days from ovulation xx

Then yep you could very well be pregnant as you are at your most fertile a short while after your period (I for example am most fertile only a day after, although some people reach their fertile period a little later).

The only way to know for sure is to get a pregnancy test (first response is best) and test around the time your period is due. But if none of your symptoms are normal for you then there is a fair possibility of pregnancy.

Good luck
