Period or spotting in early pregnancy?

Hi,
During my last cycles, I had lots of symptoms that made me think I was pregnant, but unfortunately my period came on time. I have been taking my temperature for three cycles to find out my ovulation date - the first two were fine (37° before ovulation, peak of 36.7° during, then 37° afterwards), but during this last cycle, my temperature stayed high before, during and after my period, which lasted five days. I'm now on day 10 of my cycle, I have tender breasts and a spotty face. My cycle normally lasts 28/29 days.
Do yout hink that I could be pregnant, even after a period? I know it can happen.
Thanks


It's very rare to fall pregnant straight after your period, but you're right, sometimes you can have bleeding and spotting at the beginnning of a pregnancy. Take another pregnancy test and go to the doctor.
The symptoms you describe are not necesarily a sign of pregnancy, they also fit in with high levels of oestrogen, following hormonal problems or a cycle without ovulation, like the one you have just described.
