    preggo or crazy?!
    MoonlightPath posted:
    I'm 29 and I've never had acne before in my life... but the last month or more I've been breaking out like crazy! I can't stand it, and I don't know what is causing it...
    I am ttc, and wonder if it may be a preggo symptom? I went off the pill 3 months ago and only had one period since.
    I'm also exhausted and can't concentrate on anything at work.
    We 'tried' 2 days before my last period (end of November) and again a couple of times, only about a week ago... is it possible to have symptoms this early? Is it possible to conceive and have your period 2 days later?

    Yes, it's possible to conceive and have your period two days later. Conception happens in the fallopian tubes so if you happened to ovulate during your period, it's possible you could be pregnant.

    It's also possible your boby is still trying to adjust to being off hormones and that's causing the acne.

    Take a test.
