I was intimate around the 9th and the 13th of January. I'm not due my period until around 11 days time. but I've had pain in my lower abdomen, backache, and I don't know wether it's just me thinking about the symptoms of pregnancy but my boobs feel a little bit tender and different if you get what I mean. I've also been feeling extremely uncomfortable in myself and different. This is the first time my partner has been intimate with me and not pulled out. I'm not sure wether im convincing myself these symptoms are pregnancy but I feel different in myself and sometimes feel very fatigue. The pain in my stomach is like a period pain but I've never had irregular periods and im not ovulating as I always keep check of my ovulation date.

any advice is welcome and appreciative of, thanks very much.

I realised I had miscalculated my period also with panic. at the moment I am two days late. I haven't taken a pregnancy test yet im a little worried about taking one just in case the result isn't what I'm hoping for but, I'm just hoping for the best and we will see what comes out of the test when I decide to do one!

Hello, and thank you for sharing your question with the community.  I'd love to give you some answers to your situation.  

Since you had unprotected intercourse pregnancy is definitely high on the list of possible reasons why you are having these symptoms. 

The best way to find out for sure whether or not you are pregnant is to wait and see how your period goes.  If you miss it, or it is irregular than you may be pregnant and you should take a pregnancy test!

The best time to take one is a week after a missed or irregular period.  

Let us know if you have any more questions and good luck!
