7 days past ovulation, why do I feel pressure on my left ovary and tender nipples is it too early to be pregnant? When should I take a pregnancy test

Hormones are high: A week after you ovulate, your Progesterone is peaking and your estrogen is also quite high. These can cause breast tenderness. The corpus luteum, the gland that is made where ovulation occurs, can be large and can cause ovarian pain.
