I had unprotected sex during the day prior to my ovulation and on my ovulation day, which, according to my ovulation calendar were Feb 27 and 28. My period is due on March 15. My symptoms are a stuffy nose, a sore throat and my nipples are tender. I'm tired but haven't been sleeping well and have been peeing frequently and my back hurts alone with dull lower abdominal pain. Could I be pregnant? It's still 3 days until my period.

Answer

Those symptoms could certainly indicate pregnancy, especially since it sounds like you're actively trying to conceive. When I was pregnant with my first daughter I thought that I was experiencing cold and flu symptoms but it turns out it was early pregnancy signs.

If I were you I would wait to take a test for one more day. Begin testing the morning of March 13 and if the test is negative, wait to test again until the morning of March 15.

Something to keep in mind is that although ovulation apps and calendars are really helpful, unless you're temping and charting, or confirming ovulation with an OPK, it can be difficult to know for sure when or if you've ovulated.
