Hello I am 4 DPO & starting yesterday, my nipples have been constantly hard and very tender to touch. Could this be an early pregnancy sign?

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.

I have dark and tender nipples and its hurt a lot when I touch might be pregnant?

Yes: What else can I say? I assume you've had unprotected sex with a healthy male at some time in the recent past. Stop smoking or drinking alcohol if you do these and verify whether or not you're pregnant. If you are your doctor may want to start you on prenatal vitamins and discuss this whole subject in detail. Good luck. ...Read more

I have tender nipples only, it possible early sign of pregnant my period not until feb 15. Help pls..

This is not a: Sign u are pregnant. You likely just ovulated and there would not be sufficient time for an embryo to create sufficient hormones. That's rarely a sign anyway, it's mostly nausea ANS fatigue. It sounds like u r worried though and we never discourage a pregnancy test; likewise the pill can help breast tenderness and prevent unplanned pregnancy if concerned. ...Read more

It is possible!: The symptoms you describe may be related to pregnancy, but it's hard to know unless you do a pregnancy test. I have had patients with ALL the classic signs of pregnancy (breast tenderness, wt gain, morning sickness etc) and it ended up being a virus! (I have also had patients that thought they had a virus and were pregnant!). Best thing is to check your suspicion with a home pregnancy test! ...Read more
