i might be pregnant?
hi there i am 19 years old and im not too sure if i could be pregnant. i was previously pregnant and lost it 3 months in 2 years ago, but i didnt have any major signs besides a missed period. i had sex this past friday (one week ago) and sadly, it was unprotected. i have been with my boyfriend for four years as well. i was ovulating around the time of intercourse. my one breast is very tender, and i couldnt raise my arm without it hurting. i slept close to 13 and a half hours the other day and ive never done that before in my life, and the past few days ive also been sleep 9 hours, and ive never slept more then 6 on a regular basis.i go # 2 more then usual, and sometimes pee more then im having back pains, and stomach cramps. my period is not due until after christmas. Help!? im not sure if im pregnant

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms that you describe (breast tenderness, increased sleep, increased tiredness, changes in bowel habits, frequent urination, back pain, abdominal cramps) could be few of early symptoms suggestive of pregnancy. Look out for development of any new symptoms. Wait and watch for your next periods. If periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further clarification and assistance.
Take care.
