So I know that i can't be pregnant because when I asked you guys in a previous post if there was a risk with my situation and you all said no because there was no direct genital contact and because there was only precum thru my boyfriends boxers and shorts my period is due on the 9th or 10th of this month and I am having sore breast i think because of my bra with underwire which i usually have around this time but I feel like i'm bloated and i feel like my stomach has gotten bigger, which may be due to my lack of working out lately. Is there anything I should be worried about at this point health wise?

Hi lovepink888. If you are worried that any of these are symptoms of pregnancy, you can put your mind at rest. The first symptom of pregnancy is a missed period. Sore breasts and feeling bloated show up much later on in a pregnancy -- if they even show up at all -- and can happen for all sorts of reasons other than pregnancy. For example, sore breasts and feeling bloated are also symptoms of your menstrual period, and as you said, sore breasts is a symptom that is typical for you. So that is probably all it is [Smile] If your pain is worse than usual, or if it continues for longer, you can check in with a doctor just to make sure everything's a-okay. But other than that, I don't think there's anything to worry about.

Breast tenderness (including soreness) and being bloated are common pre-menstrual symptoms, so it's likely to be your period on it's way.

Thank you both so much!! If my period doesn't come on time I shouldn't be worried either?

You haven't had a pregnancy risk.

I feel a bit iffy answering questions like 'I shouldn't be worried either?' because I can't tell you how to feel. What I can do, though, is give you the facts. [Smile]

Not all menstrual cycles are the same length, and they typically vary anywhere from 24-36 days in length. This means that sometimes, people think they're late when they're not.

However, they can also be actually late or missed for many reasons, and here's some more on that: Dude, Where's my Period?
