I am on day 15 of my cycle and I have sore nipples. Could this be because of ovulation?

Could be: Some women get sore nipples from hormone changes that occur around ovulation. Mechanical cause are more common I think (e.g. after exercise or sexual activity). If you want to keep track of ovulation, I believe most experts still recommend charting your body temperature.

Check pregnancy test: If you are 9 days late for your period, a home pregnancy test should be positive if you are pregnant. If it is negative, see doctor to evaluate your symptoms as they could be PMS related but could also be signs of a UTI or other infection.

I have a heavy thick white discharge after ovulation and sore nipples. No smell or itch. First time this happened. Is it ovulation symptoms or something else?

I have a heavy thick white discharge after ovulation and sore nipples. No smell or itch. First time this happened. Is it ovulation symptoms or something else?

Something else: Ovulation causes the mucus to be thin and watery but it still has stretch. The breast symptoms could be because of building estrogen levels leading to ovulation. We see a wide spectrum of findings so we cannot be sure of what happened. You might want to track ovulation carefully with opk, BBT or even doctor monitoring and compare with symptoms to know your body better. Hope this helps.

Wait till you miss p: You may be but you have to wait till you miss your period and than do a pregnancy test, but if you get your period than you can assume you are not pregnant.
