Could I be pregnant?

For the past week or so I've been getting very odd changes to my body. I know my body inside out so these changes have been easy to pick up on! I've been getting splitting headaches, I'm constantly tired and moody and everything seems to have a stronger smell. I haven't been sick or anything but I've gone off a lot of foods all of a sudden, yet I find it hard to stay full for long until my belly is rumbling again. Also, I've been having very vivid dreams for the past couple of days where I wake up remembering every detail, and last night, my dream involved me having a baby. Ontop of all this, I'm peeing more frequently but i haven't experienced any bowel movement in 5 days?! Very unusual for me. I don't want to take a test yet because my period is due in 2 days time and I'm not sure if you can take a test without missing a period? Just wanted to see what you guys think? Thankyou xx

Have you been TTC? A lot of women become hyper aware of any changes when TTC so normal pre AF symptoms can be mistaken for pregnancy symptoms. Equally if you've had unprotected sex then there's a chance you're pregnant!
Either way, the only way you'll know is taking a test. Best of luck, I hope you get the result you want.

I got a positive test with first response and clear blue digital 5 days before my period was due ( I had really bad back ache for two days and just felt different so thought I would see) so you could test now if you wanted to. You still might get a false negative though.

You can take a first response test.

Are you TTC?

Take an early test.

You can take a test like the First Response ones that are designed to be taken before you have missed a period. If you get a negative, it could be that it's too early to detect, in which case do another test if you do actually miss your period.

We're not exactly ttc but at the same time, if it happens we'll both be happy. I was on the pill but we've decided to let nature take its course

If you're having unprotected sex and you're not infertile then of course you can be pregnant!

Op you can test today. You have quite a few symptoms. Good luck.

The only symptoms I've had this time is everything smells stronger, been noticing perfume smells a lot more and been weeing slightly more. I'm around 5 weeks now but no other symptoms yet.

I took a test a day early with a Poundland one and got a very clear positive

Of course you could be pregnant if you're having unprotected sex. I had my positive test before my period was due, it all depends on how long your luteal phase is. Do a test tomorrow morning, if it's negative do another one in a couple of days time.

Hi everyone, I wonder if any of you could give me some advice and opinions.

Basically me and my boyfriend have had unprotected sex about 3 times (he struggles with condoms) we do use the pull out method but I think I may be having early pregnancy symptoms, as follows:

Nausea, dihharea, mild cramping (like soft period pain but no bleeding or spotting), bloating, and food aversion (certain textures of food I normally like make me want to gag) and some general feelings of weakness. However I haven't experienced sore breasts or nipples but I have read that not all women have this symptom.

I know it's too early to test as I'm not even due my period for another week and a half atleast (I normally cycle every 4 weeks give or take a few days) so really I wondered if any of you think it sounds likely I'm pregnant?

WellErrr Sun 05-Jun-16 20:25:36

The withdrawal method isn't a method. You've basically just been having unprotected sex so yes, you could well be pregnant.

Do a test.

Quite likely yes maybe

Andbabymakesthree Sun 05-Jun-16 20:26:33

Maybe order some tests

My hgc level wouldn't be high enough even if I was pregnant though would it?

I've been having these symptoms about a week but I'm not due on my period for another week and a half atleast?

Two weeks before your period you won't even have released the egg that could get fertilised so it is likely your symptoms are nothing to do with pregnancy.
