I had unprotected sex very late Friday/early Saturday morning... Just a day after a week late, really irregular, super light period. The "period" lasted only 3 days (Feb. 14-16). I'm not even sure if I can call it a period since there was no actual flow- Just really dark spotting.
1-2 days after having unprotected sex, I noticed an increase in cm. It was blood tinged at times but later turned clear, stringy and stretchy and definitely looked like ewcm. On Feb. 24 I had more ewcm again and was having tummy troubles. I kind of have a crazy cycle that's hard to track and feel like I ovulate at random, sometimes twice a month. I have a strong feeling I ovulated right after having sex. I even went out and bought a couple ovulation kits, both testing positive with thick, dark lines.
Since then.. I've noticed a significant change in taste.. food either tastes extremely bland or bad. I used to be a fan of chicken and now I can't stomach the taste. I have a taste in my mouth like I haven't brushed my teeth yet. It's pretty much an all day thing and I find myself constantly brushing my teeth, washing my mouth out with mouth wash or eating mints. Feb. 25 I had lots of clear stringy cm again and weird twinges in my pelvic area. I also just felt sore. Food continues to taste off, I smell things other people can't smell. It's usually food smelling bad to me but it isn't. The past few days I've found myself gassy with lots of lower back pain. For the last few days, I've noticed cm to be more creamy then usual. Sometimes in the morning it feels like I was hit by a truck because my thigh muscles, lower back and butt muscles hurt so much! I've also been waking up in the morning with nausea but it's not an every day thing.
If by some crazy chance, I did ovulate after sex.. would it be possible for me to be experiencing pregnancy symptoms so soon? And when would be a good time to test? I don't think my next period is due till March 14th.. but with my taste being so off and my body acting so weird, it definitely has me curious!
Yes i think it is possible to experience pregnancy symptoms so soon. It all depends on whether you were ovulating at the correct time after the sex. You should get it checked or run a home pregnancy test.
I haven't tested yet.. But yesterday I had the tiniest amount of pinkish-brown spotting when I would wipe. Then today, I woke up with a random, really bad chest cold and I have this weird pinkish-reddish tinged watery flow (sorry, tmi). For months my cycle has been 30+ days. My period isn't due for another week! With my luck, I probably got it early this month!
I would take a test anyways just to be sure! I've known some people who still got thier "periods" while they were pregnant. I know for me there were a couple times where I spotted during early pregnancy.
The cm after having unprotecting sex could have been the aftermath of him ejaculating inside you...but at the same time I always find an increase in cm when I'm ovulating as well. It's a tough call.
I'm sorry I couldn't be more help but good luck and make sure to let us know what happens!
