Couldn't find what you looking for?


On microgynon. Had sex 5 days after ovulation. Had sore nipples the next day and still do 5 days on. Very aware of my boobs. Also my stomach feels hard / bloated. Could it be pregnancy symptoms? Just i dont normally experience period symptoms this bad. Meant to be due on Monday.
