Welcome to ehealthforum,
The early period/bleeding could be suggestive of possibility of implantation bleeding if you have been sexually active around the time of ovulation (especially if it has occurred after 6-12 days of ovulation). The symptoms (increased tiredness, nausea, swollen breasts) could be suggestive of possibility of early pregnancy. If pregnancy is suspected, look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy and consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any unusual/new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest.
Take care.

I aslo had what seemed to be my period 4 days early. Prior to that from oct 6 until I got my period on oct 22nd(4 days early) I had really tender breat, enlarged area around my nipples, and nausea but no vomitting,bloating and cramping at times. My period to me seemed pretty normal but slighty not as heavy but lasted the normal amount of time.

After I started my period all the symptoms started to go away and now my breast are not sore at all and not really an nausea feeling no cramps etc.

Coukd I be pregnant? i am going to take a home test this week to make sure.
