Can I be pregnant?
My last menstration was almost 3 weeks ago. About 3 days after my ovulation, I had terrible cramp in my left ovary and have spent the last 3 days being really nauseous. My legs are also cramping and my breasts are slightly tender. I am off almost all foods as the thought just makes me feel even more nauseous. Is there any chance i could be pregnant so soon... Would i be feeling the symptoms so soon after my last period. Should i wait until i have missed a period before testing, or would it show up now?

Dear Miekie

The possibility of a pregnancy should always be considered and the bleeding could well have been an implantation bleed and not a period. I would suggest that you do a home pregnancy test as soon as possible and should this be inconclusive I would suggest a blood pregnancy test be done.
