hello. im new here and i have a question. im 20 years old and i had sex with my fiance without any protection. I got my period a week early(August 13th instead of the 20th).I just had sex again with him on the 23rd. Its now the 27th and I feel alittle sick to my stomach now. And my breasts are alittle tender. And I have been craving alot of food lately that I normally wouldnt be. My average cycle is 28 days. So could this just be signs that I am ovulating again or that I am pregnant. Could I just be having sihful thinking that causes me to be regnant. Please answer.... it would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

If it's been at least ten days since the risk (the first one), I'd suggest you take a pregenancy test now, especially if the bleeding was very light when you had it.

Per the lack of protection, are you trying to become pregnant?

well my last period it was light the first day then my normal for 2 and then the last day was light again. the first time i had sex was on the 3rd of august and i got my period of the 13th. that would be 10 days. it lasted to the 16th. and then we had sex again on the 23rd. im on another forum and they are all telling me that my syptooms are most likely caused by me ovulatiing again. im going to get a test today though and check. hopefully i am!!!

To add to this:

Have both you and your fiance gotten a full physical, and a full gynecologist check-up for you? It is widely recomended that you BOTH see a doctor to know you're both in the best condition physically to be having children right now. Especially for you considering you'll need a starting point for good prenatal care when you do become pregnant. A doctor can also help you determine when you're most fertile, etc. so if you're not pregnant now, you can become pregnant more quickly.

yes we have both had a physical. the thing is i dont know if i am pregnant or not. i didnt get a chance to get a test today, but i would be ovulating around this time and normally i do get slight cramps and whatnot when i do so. and there are days that i feel pragnant and other days i dont. i have another question that ihave been reading about. when you become pregnant, does the amount of mucus become increased erly in the pregnancy, like around what time would that happen if this is true.

Rereading all the posts again to clarify (and sorry I didn't include this in my last post) it seems to me like your first attempt didn't result in a pregnancy, since any bleeding you'd experience after, if you were pregnant, would not really even resemble a normal period for any number of days. You can still test if you'd like, just to check, but it's more doubtful that you'd become rpegnant from that encounter.

Your second try, however, may have yielded better results, but it is still WAY to early to tell. You would not be experiencing any pregnancy symptoms this early in the game, considering full conception (fertilization and implantation) would take a few days or longer based on when after your encounter you ovulated.

So, you can test now if you'd like to check about the first time (though the period you described sounded iffy to me that you'd have that and still be pregnant), or wait another week (or 10-14 days) and test then to come up with an accurate result from the encounter on the 23rd.

It's good you've both had physicals, have you talked to the doctor at all about how to find your most fertile days?

Per the mucus- while it is true there is a change in a woman's cervical mucus when she is pregnant, I personally do not know enough about it to tell you how much it increases, when that change happens, etc. If it is to happen I CAN tell you that you would not be saying any changes in it right now.

thanks alot for your time. i have spoken with my doctor about how to track what days are more than others. im going to give it another week and then i will test. that way i have a better chance of a yes or no that is correct. thank you again. i appreciate it.
