I took one pill of pregnacare a week ago, last Thursday, since that time I have that metallic taste in my mouth, it doesn't go away, I had that for a day before I took one as well but it went away, I am just wondering, can it be from taking this one pill a week ago? 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

What cycle day are you?

VikiGla97 Wed 03-Apr-19 15:00:06

24th day of my cycle 🤷🏻‍♀️

I had that taste all through pregnancy, it only went when I gave birth. You may be different of course but being pregnant really changed my tastebuds,

That's a pregnancy symptom. I'd take a test xx

I get that when I take iron tablets pregnant or not.

I was going to do that when my period is due, although my cycles are irregular like 27,28,35 and even 40 days.... that's why I don't have much hope xxx

@Whoops75 yes I know that you can get it when u take iron tablets but the is I took only one pregnacare tablet a week ago and before that I had that taste for a day as well 🤷🏻‍♀️ that's why I am not sure... do u take it regularly?

@125678katie although my cycle is irregular 🤦🏻‍♀️😩

125678katie Wed 03-Apr-19 15:37:45

I’d test if I were you. Can’t imagine one pill making much of a difference x

Not if you had the taste the day before you took the tablet, no.

VikiGla97 Wed 03-Apr-19 15:44:15

@TansyViola it is just, I don't have any other symptoms, just this weird taste and tiredness, my breast is not sore, just little tender plus I can see some veins (but I had it several times in past before my period) 😩 and some cramps on my left side of stomach sometimes on right 🤷🏻‍♀️ I just don't want to be disappointed again 😔

That's understandable. Best of luck!

Have you eaten pine nuts recently?

Aquilla Wed 03-Apr-19 16:16:07

I noticed it with pregnancy #1. When #2 rolled around I clicked straight away what it was. Good luck OP flowers

VikiGla97 Wed 03-Apr-19 16:33:20

@Starskit no I haven't 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

VikiGla97 Wed 03-Apr-19 16:33:59

@Aquilla when did u notice that? Before your period? Xx

Macaroonmayhem Wed 03-Apr-19 16:38:48

That was my first pregnancy symptom, it was like I’d been sucking on 2p’s😂.

VikiGla97 Wed 03-Apr-19 16:59:50

@Macaroonmayhem this is my first and the only 😂 all I have is metallic taste and crumps like for a period sometimes

Aquilla Thu 04-Apr-19 13:05:15

I couldn't tell you exactly, OP but it was v early days before I would've thought to test for that month (I was trying to conceive). Any luck?

Is there on this? Xx

VikiGla97 Wed 10-Apr-19 00:09:12

@mummyjojo19 yes, I have done 3 tests and they all are positive 🥰 sorry for late reply but I have been busy as my mom visited me and I have forgotten about my phone for a while 😩
