Had unprotected sex on the 14th while I was ovulating. On the 17th I feel my breast has gotten a little fuller and I feel bloated. Pregnant or not?

This can also occur at certain times of your menstral cycle. That being said, it could also be an infection, or breast cancer. Not to scare you, but you really should have it checked by a physician. ...Read more
