My boyfriend and I had sex on the 25th of October, it was unprotected and we didnt really plan it..it just kinda happened. But now I am having down there cramps and stomach cramps, along with being very moody, I am also craving foods, and every time I eat cheese it tastes like dirt, I have also been VERY tired. The lower half of my stomach is also very tender and is starting to firm up abit, along with me being dizzy, my boobs hurt like crazy, so how likely is that i might be pregnant. Oh and my period is due November 2nd i think.
Are you tracking your ovulation? I'm just wondering how you know you were ovulating that day.
Although you are having all the "classic" pregnancy symptoms, I also found that when I started trying to conceive, my typical PMS symptoms seems more exaggerated, making me think I was pregnant, if that makes sense. When we think we might be pregnant, sometimes we notice our PMS more than usual.
HOWEVER, having said that, there is a good chance you could be pregnant. Statistically speaking, there is a 20% chance of pregnancy each month you don't use protection and all it takes is one time
I would recommend waiting about a week before testing (that will allow any hormones to build and a more accurate test). In the meantime, grab a prenatal (or flinstone vitamins with an added folic acid on the side) just in case.
It's way too early for symptoms if you are pregnant. It takes 6-10 days for a fertilized egg to implant and another few days for there to be enough of the pregnancy hormone to get a positive pregnancy test.
If you were actually ovulating that day, the fertilized egg (if there is one) is barely starting to implant.
