Hello, I just recently turned 18 and my nipples have constantly been hard for the past week. I've been reading various posts about the cause for this and has begun to get very scared because they all conclude to the same thing---pregnancy. My boyfriend of 4 years and I have been having sex constantly since the day after I came off my 5-day cycle: august 9th. I am due to start again sometime around September 3rd or 4th. Can you please provide some explanation for this other than pregnancy? When is the earliest I can take an accurate pregnancy test before my next period?

Can my girlfriend be pregnant as her nipples hurt?
She got her period last month on 10th of july...then next week we made out once and she went down on me.She was wearing her jeans and inners and i did not *** when she went down.During the second week post period we made out again and I fingered her...but before doing this i made sure i washed my hands with sanitizer.Then again last week I fingered her and yet again i washed my hands prior to fingering.Since the past couple of days her nipples are paining even on slightest touch.But she says her boobs feel alright,its just the nipples.We havent had sex and her periods are due on 10th Aug and they are always irregular,We are very worried and would like to seek help.And now,her nippes are erect and she is still 5-6 days away from her period.Please do help us with your advice.

Hello Anon

There is no pregnancy risk. She may have PMS.

Why doesn't everyone just take a pregnancy test that are about a quid instead of wining on here even if you think it's too early to take one you will get a faint line if you are oh and by the way you can't get pregnancy symptoms 2 days after having unprotected sex don't be so ridiculous the baby wouldn't even be there within that time,.. seriously

Hello, maybe you can help me with my problem. My last period was on November 16th but im expecting another on the 14 of December. but lately, ive been having minor symptoms of pregnancy. for instance, I dont feel like eating in the morning, my nipples are darker and they hurt A LOT, I have small tolerable cramping, im always in the bathroom, I gag if not throw up after I brush my teeth, my gums bleed, my face is breaking out, I sweat like a pig and I do nothing but sit at a desk at work, I cried out of nowhere because my boyfriend wasn't paying attention to me, I have a tiny rash where my breast and underarm meet, and to top it all off im always freaking thirsty !!! what should I do

I'm 18, and my nipples have been hurting and have been hard for almost a week and I don't know why either. I have the birth control in my arm I don't have periods much and I don't know my cycle either. I do have unprotected sex with my boyfriend, we used to use condoms but we've been together so long we thought why bother. I don't know if I should tell him or take a pregnancy test or not???? Any thoughts?

Okay, I need advice. My nipples have constantly been hard for three days now. I'm not cold!!!! I'm on birth control with the arm implant. I hardly EVER have my period. My boobs are soar too but not too soar to the point where I can't sleep on them. I have unprotected sex too with my spouse. I don't know my period cycle anymore. But when I did have a regular period, my nipples were never hard for the period days. What could this mean. Should I take a pregnancy test??
