4 days post ovulation. Had sex every day.  Now sore nipples, gassy, bloated, light spotting.  Possibly pregnant?

An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

Can you get a positive pregnancy result three days after ovulation?

Can you get a positive pregnancy result three days after ovulation?

Positive Pregnancy: Pregnancy implies conception, not ovulation. Positive tests mean the fetus has had time to transit the fallopian tubes and enter into and settle on the wall of the uterus and has had enough time to grow big enough to be spilling chemicals and sharing blood with the mother. That usually takes ten to fourteen days after conception. Thus your scenario means the pregnancy happened earlier than that. ...Read more

Good luck. ...Read more
