Hi there- I am new to the forum- I'm hoping someone can help me. My last period started on April 29, and my cycles tend to bounce between 31 and 32 days. On Tues (the 14th) early evening i started to get that twinge pain or mild cramp, only the left side.. this lasted a little while went away and it came back for a little while the following morning (the 15th),- im assuming i was ovulating? I had unprotected sex twice with my partner on the 10th. Today my nipples are very sore and a couple times today i had a metal taste in my mouth. I know its too early to tell.. but is it possible i could be pregnant?

Hi I'm 4 days late on my period I have had some symptoms that have made me wonder if I'm pregnant eg needing the toilet constantly, period sort of pains, white discharge and also bloating and a strange swirling pain in my stomach :/, I was just wondering of anyone else had the similar symptoms? And how long I should wait until I do a pregnancy I test? I feel like its never going to happen to me. Can anyone help? Thank you

Hi there all. On the 22nd of April my uterus felt funny like it was twitching for a few minutes. That day I went to the bathroom and did a finger test (I monitor my mucus) and there was a little very light brown mucus with a pinkish spot or 2 between (I ovulated the 17/18th). The 29th of April I had a lotion like cm and my nipples is a bit sore. The 1st of May went to toilet nothing there after I wiped, later the day went again for #2 (sorry for TMI) and BANG it was like a watery bloodbath (came outof my private part and not my anus, I made sure of that and I had no cramps), after wiping it away it used a tampon as I was at work, did not wanted to take any chances. Got home there were a little pink on tamp. Night time there was nothing. May, 2nd I went to toilet, the morning and it was a watery brown discharge. the rest of the day so far its a little light brown discharge when I wipe, not a drop on pad! My period is due the 5th of May and I am freaking out. Anyone else out there with such a problem? Sorry for spelling mistakes
