I had unprotected sex about 3 weeks ago. I have been having symptoms of a pregnancy that I have heard of a while ago. I have had a sudden out break of pimple (hormones?), a lot of milky white discharge that is unusual because I've never really had that, not for this long. I've been eating like crazy but no certain cravings. Yesterday I noticed a sudden burst of, like, a metallic taste in my mouth that sort of tastes like blood, but it went away fast. It didn't linger in my mouth and when I looked in the mirror there was no blood. I've heard early pregnancy symptoms can sometimes include weird tastes in your mouth. Also, I was told you have bowel movement a lot more than you normally would & I usually only have that 3 to 4 times a week. And here lately I've noticed I've been going a lot. Today I have gone 3 times. Everyone has asked me are my breasts sore & that they are usually sore within the first week or two, but I haven't had any kind of signs of sore breasts? Oh & I have irregular periods so idk if I've missed a period or not because they always come at different times. I need advice. Do y'all think these are early pregnancy signs? What other signs could I be expecting? Please help me!

Early pregnancy symptoms are very similar to PMS signs, so it can be hard to be sure. As far as moving your bowels, some women go more, so get constipated. It's hard to go by symptoms alone. Since the sex was 3 weeks ago and you have irregular periods, you could try testing now and then retest in a week or so if your period doesn't show up. Good luck!

Thank you! I'm very scared. Any symptoms I should be on the look out for?

Hey im 17 and pregnant with my second child! If your last period was a month and 5 weeks ago than you can take a pregnancy test and get your result. I had a negative result than I tested a week later and it was possitive. I right now have no signs or symptoms besides no having a period. If you think you may be pregnant make sure you take a vitamin to prevent your baby from spina bifida and nuerological problems. If you have any questions let me know. With my first pregnany I had morning sickness after a month of being pregnant, I was always exhausted, and always wanted to snack on somthing. Everyone symptoms are different.
