So me and my boyfriend had sex saturday and we did it more than once. unprotected at that.i'm not too proud of it but we did. My last period stopped on the 26th of october and it started on the 20th of October. a few days after me and him had sex, i started feeling these cramp feelings and it's been goin on for almost 3 days now. the first day it felt like I was coming on my period and i know that wasn't true. it was pretty mild.the second day it came back and it wasn't so bad. so was the third day. i've been feeling this bloated like feeling, and one day during this week my breast started hurting a little. but that was just for one day.i'm really concerned as to whether or not i am pregnant, but i know it is too soon to tell if i am. does anybody know what's going on?

I unfortunately don't have an answer for you, but I have a similar story. My boyfriend and I are trying.. or rather "stopped trying not to" get pregnant. We have had unprotected sex several times over the last few weeks. I got my period as usual, but then a week and a half later I experianced one day of brown spotting, and about 3 days of red spotting that increased daily to become what looked, and felt like my period (a full week early) bloating, cramping, and tender breasts included. I started feeling pregnancy symptoms such as extreme light headedness, strange cramps, sharp pains in my lower right side, then my lower left. back aches, headaches, severe moodswings, fatique, etc. I am now finishing the week that I was supposed to get my period, I have had no further bleeding, and my breasts are nolonger firm or tender. I have started doubting weather or not I could be pregnant...

But the strange thing is that I have continued to have these cramps. They are more mild then normal menstral cramps and are sometimes more to the lower side, as opposed to the lower middle area like usual. They have come back everytime We have had sex since. I have no idea what this could mean, but if you find any answers please share them, I will be sure to do the same.

I've been in the same situation a couple of times.

My partner and I would have sex, and then I'd have bad cramps for a few days. It got that it was happening after having sex quite regularly in a 2 week period (at the same time, my breasts were quite sore and tender as well.)

I went to see my doctor about it - and it ended up that I was not pregnant - and that it was a completely different prognosis. I do not have patience at the best of times, and rather than question whether or not I was pregnant - I'd just thought it best to ask the professional.

Hope my story helps some!
