I think I'm ovulating today. Extreme dizziness, strong headache, spotting, increased appetite, flue type symptoms. Normal?

Maybe?: Common ovulation symptoms include vaginal discharge, an increased sex drive or libido, abdominal cramps and pain, breast tenderness, increased body temperature, night sweats, hot flashes, migraines, dizziness and nausea. Vaginal discharge fluid may be clear or creamy-white. Yes it is possible that you are ovulating, specially if these are usual symptoms during prior ovulatory phases.

Heartburn after ovulation, back aches, sore breast but on the outer sides, tired, hungry. Neg. Preg. Tst. Past two days bd twice am I pregnant?

Testing too early: Wow. There is no physical way your symptoms represent pregnancy. The mothers body doesn't even have a way to know it pregnant till about two weeks in. Testing before the next period is missed is worthless. The test cannot pick up pregnancy till at least fourteen days after impregnation.

My appitate has increased a lot in the past 4 days, could I be pregnant? I had relations 3-4 days after ovulation.

My appitate has increased a lot in the past 4 days, could I be pregnant? I had relations 3-4 days after ovulation.

Not likely: Increased appetite is not a reliable sign of early pregnancy. If you have relations more than 24 hours after ovulation the egg has already passed it's ability to conceive.

Took plan b during ovulation now I have tender swollen breasts, hungry, emotional, tired, increased discharge and bloated. Did it fail?

Took plan b during ovulation now I have tender swollen breasts, hungry, emotional, tired, increased discharge and bloated. Did it fail?

Hard to guess: Plan B works regardless of ovulation, or broken condoms, or ejaculations into vaginas. Plan B can alter the menstrual bleeding for the cycle in which Plan B was taken, and sometimes the next cycle too, so there may be some irregular spotting. One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex, because Plan B works most of the time, but not all the time.

Might depression cause an increased appetite?

Might depression cause an increased appetite?

Yes: People with depression can have different appetite changes. I have seen those that have lost weight and others who gain weight. Some people who eat more when they are depressed use food as a coping mechanism to help them feel better. It is best to identify the problem early and get proper treatment.Hypothyroidism can also mimic depression and cause weight gain.A simple blood test can rule this out.
