Once the excretions dry, they become hard and can be gently washed off when showering. If the material looks like caked or crusted blood, please see your OB GYN MD for an examination of your breasts. ...Read more

Too soon to know: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Is constantly hard nipples, and more prominent veins a sign of pregnancy?

Is constantly hard nipples, and more prominent veins a sign of pregnancy?

What will we think?: What can we think of next to worry about? No. The answer is no. First comes conception. Then comes implantation. Then the fetus has to grow big enough to have blood cells and share chemicals with the mother's body. That is about fourteen days or so after conception. Then the body missed a period and the pregnancy takes hold. Please if you have missed a period get tested. If not you must wait. ...Read more

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. See doctor for your pain ...Read more

Based on your last menses, you should be in this time of your cycle when Progesterone levels are high and breasts can respond as you have felt. Definitely take a pregnancy test though if your cycle is late. ...Read more
