Pregnancy question

I have been on birth control since I was 17 and I'm now 23. I recently have stopped taking them after my last period which was June 27-30. My fiancé and I have been having unprotected sex TTC. A couple days ago I woke up and my nipples were sensitive to touch, even having a shirt on with no bra was very uncomfortable. Although my breasts are not sore it's just my nipples. It's like they are at attention at all times as well. I was wondering if this was a early sign of pregnancy or if I'm thinking too much into things! Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!

Hi again, Dodge2

You were told there was was a likelihood of being pregnant the last time you posted (because of missing several days of BC pills). Test for pregnancy. It's the only way to know. The symptoms can also be PMS.

I did test when I had missed the pills before. It was negative then my period came. I stopped taking my pills after that. My period isn't due for two more weeks. I was simply wondering if sore nipples were a sign or not? I planned on testing when I returned home again but I just thought I would ask?

Of course, you can ask. That's just it, it can be a sign of either - PMS or pregnancy. Both are dictated by hormones. That was why I said the only way to know (for sure) is by taking a test. Otherwise, it's speculation.

I've never had this happen with other periods, but then again I've used the pill for so long before getting off I could just be forgetting! I'm for sure going to test when I get home Monday. Thank you for the help!
