I'm trying to get pregnant and this morning I noticed that my nipples have white spots on them just like they did with my first pregnancy.
I'm about a week late on my period. could I be pregnant?

White spots on the nipples could indicate nothing abnormal, a period that is one week late could be a serious sign of pregnancy. A late period is the first serious sign of early pregnancy but is not always related to pregnancy so a late period must also be confirmed by a pregnancy test. You can take a home pregnancy test to confirm or exclude pregnancy, and if positive, follow up at the gynecologist's office with blood test and an ultrasound confirmation of the pregnancy.
