The : The symptoms of pregnancy can start once implantation occurs. This typically happens about 8-10 days after ovulation. Based on your lmp of 8/30/11, you likely ovulated on or around 10/14/11, if in fact you conceived, then the timing for pregnancy symptoms is consistent. There are early prediction pregnancy tests in stores that can predict pregnancy a week before your next period is due. I suggest you take one to be sure, or you can always follow up with your primary care provider or gynecologist for testing. Good luck! ...Read more

3 weeks after safe intercourse. Symptoms are: tender breasts, Stomach aches, cravings, cramps. Chance of pregnancy?

3 weeks after safe intercourse. Symptoms are: tender breasts, Stomach aches, cravings, cramps. Chance of pregnancy?

Unlikely, but...: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more
