Too soon...: There are no symptoms of pregnancy if a woman just got pregnant (conceived) within the past 10-14 days. If there are currently true pregnancy symptoms, then she was already pregnant from a prior ovulation (and therefore did not ovulate this time). Conception (fertilization of the egg) happens the day of ovulation or the day after ovulation, but women never know the exact moment of ovulation. ...Read more

Ovulation day was anywhere from 9/16-18 I am now having period like cramps & also feeling very bloated could i be preg. How soon can I test b4 period?

How soon.: There are some home pregnancy tests that report to be effective as 6 days into a pregnancy. So that would be around 9/24 or so. But, it might be smart to simply wait until your next period is due. That way you will not have the anxiety (and expense) of multiple tests and wondering if you're having false negative tests. Good luck.

Oh, and if you're not. Start prenatal vitamins! ...Read more

Your hormones: are likely in flux for whatever reason, and you would need to be patient to see if things would settle down. Menstrual fluctuations are affected by many different factors, including nutrition, psychological state of mind, stress, infections/ illnesses, etc. If you continue to have these symptoms and you are late menstruating, check a pregnancy test. ...Read more

Had protected sex day b4 period. Period was on time and normal. Now round ovulation time and feeling bloated and crampy could i be pregnant?

It happens anytime: You can get pregnant at any time during your cycle. The chance is less right before/during/after period, but still happens. Best chance is around time of ovulation--often midcycle for most women. Many women have some light period/bleeding during the first month or two after becoming pregnant. It is very easy and fast to do a home pregnancy test--which is highly accurate. So, check a hpt. Good luck. ...Read more

Flu Season: Remember your body would not even know it is pregnant till the egg gets into the uterus, implants on the wall and then grows big enough to be sharing blood and waste with the mother's blood stream. This process takes about two weeks. If your period is still so far away your symptoms are 100% unlikely to represent pregnancy. ...Read more
