Am I pregnant or is my period just late?

My fiancé and I had unprotected sex 20 days ago on my high fertility days. I am now 5 days late for my period. My breasts and nipples have been feeling really soft lately and they seem to be growing. I have also been discharging alot more than usual and have been having horrible upper back pain. I have also been feeling really horny lately. My face has been breaking out (pimples) and I even noticed a cold sore inside my inner lip a few days ago .

I was on the mycro gynon 21. Missed about the last 5 pills. Had my period when it was due but was rather slow. Had unprotected sex alot of times all the time he busted in me. My period is late by 2 days. Could i be pregnant? P.S ive been having difficulties getting pregnant.

I'm having the same exact symptoms. I'm due to start my period in 6 days. I read that acne can happen early in pregnancy because of hormones. But I don't think your breasts would be growing this early on. It's hard to not notice the tiniest things when trying to conceive. Good luck!

Hello alinaem5,

An acne breakout is not a symptom of pregnancy. A missed period, if you are having unprotected intercourse, is a sign of pregnancy.

I also get these symptoms when I am soon to get my period (the breaking out)

Hello Anonymous,

There is a good chance that you are pregnant. Having unprotected intercourse during your fertile period of ovulation increases your chances.

Wait at least two more days and take a home pregnancy test.
