Nausea and slight cramps for 8 days now, sore breasts for about two days. Ejaculated inside of during ovulation. Could this be early pregnancy?

Possible: Any time semen enters the vagina, especially around your ovulation time, you are at risk of getting pregnant. You can try a pregnancy test, or wait to see if your period comes. If it is late, than check a pregnancy test 1 week after, and if positive, congratulations and best wishes. If you want to get pregnant, start prenatal vitamins too and see gyn. ...Read more

Signs of pregnancy: Nausea, fatigue, loose bowels, abdominal pain or even vaginal bleeding are not reliable indicators of pregnancy. The best way to know for sure is an at home urine pregnancy test. Since you are so close to ovulation, if the 1st test is negative, you should repeat another one 1 week later. Best of luck to you! ...Read more

Period Nov 3-8. Having headaches, cramps, nausea, back pain, stomach pain. No bc. Last 3x I had sex are Nov 10, 2, 1. Negative ovulation test. Help!

Maybe pregnant: Though unlikely you are pregnant with a period from November 3 to 8, you can't be sure. Can have bleeding which seems like a period in early pregnancy, and since you aren't using contraception, a pregnancy test should be checked. Not sure when/why an ovulation test was done. Do pregnancy test now; treat symptoms. See MD if more headache, stomach pain. Good luck! ...Read more

10 dpo feeling nauseas since 3 dpo. Felt ovulation cramps, they continued for almost a week. Now I have a pulling feeling in my uterus. AF due in 4 day?

Pregnancy?: Don't know what "AF" means, but if your period does not start in another week, get a serum HCG test in a week from your healthcare provider. Cramps are usually present when ovulation occurs, but can also happen when an egg implants in the uterus. Too early for a home pregnancy test to be reliable. ...Read more

Maybe: If you had unprotected sex around the time of ovulation you definitely could be pregnant. If your period is late do a pregnancy test and repeat it in 3-5 days if it is negative to know for sure. Urinary frequency, lower back ache, fatigue, and cramping could also be symptoms of a UTI. If the test is negative or your symptoms worsen, you need to be seen. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Take a 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. ...Read more

Trying to conceive and had sex during ovulation. 5 days later had cramps, back pain, bloating. Went to gyn 7 days later due to extreme nausea and frequent urination. Found complex cyst I've never had?

Follow-up needed: Ovarian cysts are very common. Every cycle you have a cyst produced where you ovulated from. Most of these cysts resolve without any treatment. However, if you are having a lot of pain then it may need to be treated now because some of these cysts can twist on themselves. However, if the pay is getting better, you can wait and get a follow-up ultrasound in 6 weeks. ...Read more

Can do a preg. Test: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more
