    I am 23yrs old, married 3yrs. I have been off bc for 3 to 4yrs.
    First day of my last period was April 5th.
    Since Tuesday (April 23rd) I have experienced very sore breasts, mood swings, excessive hunger lower back pain, and slight nausea.
    I'm not expecting af until the 5th of May.
    Is it possible that these symptoms are from pregnancy even though I would only be 3 weeks?
    I know testing would not help this early but I hope one of you can!

    It's too early for symptoms. Since it takes 6-10 days for a fertilized egg to implant, it takes another several days for there to be enough hormones to cause symptoms.

    So if I continue to experience these symptoms it being 6 days after approximate ovulation, would you assume, if it were you, that the cause is pregnancy?
