I'm not exactly sure where to start, so I'll just start from here :
For the past 2 months, I've been having unprotected sex with my boyfriend. We aren't exactly trying to have a baby right now, but there's just some little voice in my head that hopes we have one eventually.
In December, I had a basically normal period - I have a naturally heavy flow that lasts for at least five days and we did have sex around my expected ovulation day, which was somewhere in the week of the 20th-26th. However, in January, my period was only 2 days long and exceptionally lighter than normal. In the last week, I've noticed an increased pain in my back, like a achey dull pain you get when you have a fever. My BBT has been slightly higher than normal this month as well. The past few days I've had extremely bad constipation - which I never get - and it's been three or four days since my last bowel movement. There's this light achey cramping in my lower abdomen and I've been bloated for a few days.
I guess, my question is has anyone else had these symptoms or am I just assuming something out of nothing? I have yet to take a HPT, part of me thinks it's because I'm scared of knowing the truth either way. Is that normal for someone to think?
Please help, all help is appreciated.
