I stopped getting my depo last August (I just didn't go back to get it) me and my partner have a pretty active sex life, a few weeks ago I was experiencing sore and swollen boobs, which I didn't think much of last week I experienced what o thought was a period. Had some cramps.. And I now have a watery clear discharge? And my breast tenderness has gone... I have had some slight cramps and back pain still, Could I be pregnant? I'm scared to take a test incase of the disaapointment? hmmhmm Can anyone help

It's easy to be confused about symptoms as so many are similar around period and implantation/early pregnancy, but there really is only one way to find out and it's much better to do a test asap, rather than symptom spotting and building the expectation. Get yourself a test first thing, good luck x

What contraception have you been using?

gemx86x Wed 07-Jan-15 17:05:26

You know none of us can tell you right? You know the only way to find out is to take a test?

You've been having unprotected sex for almost 4 months (I presume "active" means regularly ) you could be pregnant. The only way to find out is to take a test.

I'm aware none of you can tell me for definite I just wanted to know some others experiences before being dissapointed that's all, I haven't been taking anything as we have been trying for a baby I jut presumed it to be difficult once coming off depo, that's all

What I meant was are these signs of pregnancy, the fact I had what I thought was a period I was a tad confused is all

Pee on a stick. What's the alternative? Torturing yourself? Just get it over with!

gemx86x Thu 08-Jan-15 00:42:47

That's what I plan to do! Christ I was only asking Need to jump down my throat!

I will repeat the best response I have ever seen on one of these threads : "if you wee on your keyboard the Internet will tell you".

I do quite like that one I peed on a stick and there is the faintest of lines there to say positive what now? I just wanted to know what early signs of pregnancy could be

Congratulations! grin

Get a clearblue digital, pee first thing in the morning.
Although if you've got a line you've got a line so congrats smile

The early signs of pregnancy are the same as signs of AF - including but not limited to the following : sore boobs, cramps, nausea, various types of CM smile
Sounds like you've got a BFP!! It doesn't matter if the line is faint. Congratulations!! grin

Could be a positive, could be an early miscarriage with the bleeding you had. Impossible to tell at the moment. Peeing on another stick in a couple of days might help - the line may get darker. That, or bloods at the GP's now and in 48 hours. In anyway, if you are pregnant, congrats! But do get booked for a scan soonish, as it sounds like you have no idea about your dates smile

gemx86x Thu 08-Jan-15 17:28:15

I don't understand all these AF and things lol Im new to this, with not having a period I just don't know.but thanks everyone

a line is a line! Get a clear blue digital and test with 1st morning wee, but I'd say congratulations!
