    My last period started on October 10th and ended on October 17th. According to an app I have that calculates my fertile/ovulation days, I should have ovulated on October 23rd. I had sexual intercourse with my boyfriend before, during, and after my period. At least 8 times during that time frame. Now it is 3 days before my period is due and for the last week I've had consistent nausea, heightened sense of smell, frequent headaches, dizziness, I drink way more water, and I'm exhausted most of the day. These are all very unlike me, even on my period, which is just horrible cramps and bleeding. Starting this morning, I have light bleeding, I guess it would be considered spotting, and a few cramps, but I think those were more because I wasn't drinking enough water. I'm thinking I'll be missing my period on November 6th. Any ideas on this? Should I take a pregnancy test and if so, when? Thanks in advance for helpful responses!

    I'd wait and see if your period is late by more than a day or two before taking a test..

    Yes, wait until your period is missed/late - I'd even recommend waiting until it is about 1 week late.
