the first day of my last period was december 27th. We had unprotected sex with ejaculation on the 10th and the 14th of January. For about 3 weeks now I've had light cramps, lower back ache, feel bloated, constipated and just recently breasts are sensitive, also have thick white lotion like cervical mucus. Could I possibly be pregnant? Also is it too early for a pregnancy test as I am due to start on the 31st?

Welcome to ehealthforum and thanks for writing

You had unprotected intercourse during the ovulation days which are 9 to 16 days in a regular 28 to 30 day cycle so pregnancy is a possibility. The symptoms described by you as abdominal cramps, increased vaginal discharge, breast tenderness are indicative of conception chances but right now it is too early to take the test for pregnancy determination. Any test gives results after a week or so of the missed period and never before that. So right now just wait for the periods.

If they are missed then after a week get a Urine test for pregnany determination by fresh morning urine sample. Consider visiting a Gynaecologist for evaluation.

Take care!
