Nine Days past Ovulation Symptoms

If you are 9 DPO and anxiously awaiting time to take a pregnancy test, here are some possible pregnancy symptoms you might be experiencing as early as nine days past ovulation.

A really delicate subject to talk about, among so many others can be considered the multiple symptoms with which women deal with within the first nine days after the ovulation period. Usually, a woman that is confronted with this could be two or maybe even three weeks pregnant and could begin to experience early signs and symptoms of pregnancy. It is important to remember that not all women will experience the same symptoms, at the same time. But let’s see the most commonly seen symptoms as early as 9 DPO.

Breast changes

One of the most common symptom women can expect to find 9 days past ovulation is the tenderness in the breast area. According to specialists, this is perfectly normal, but this is also one of the most common symptoms of pregnancy in the earliest stage. Some women can even experience a heavier and fuller chest, while others could just be confronted with a bit of tenderness. Still, there are many women who experience such symptoms before their missed period. So, in order not to mistake these for pregnancy symptoms, you should take a closer look at the darker part around the nipple, the areola, which could appear darker in case of pregnancy and larger, so you can use this as a focus point for you.

Unexplained fatigue

One of the most common, but difficult to identify, symptoms that could be seen as early as 9 DPO is the fact that women could feel more tired than they usually are. Yes, we know, you already have a busy life and feel tired every day, so you really have to be careful about this particular symptom. Also extreme fatigue is a sign of early pregnancy because your progesterone level will reach a sky high level which will cause the fatigue. So if you notice you’re sleepier than usual without any particular reason, you could be pregnant.

Mild cramps

If you experience mild cramping in the pelvic region, this could also indicate possible pregnancy as early as 9 days past ovulation. However, this one is a tricky symptom, as the same cramping could be also a premenstrual sign of impending menstruation.

If you think you may be pregnant as early as 9 days past ovulation, keep the faith until it is time to take a pregnancy test to determine for sure if it is in fact pregnancy causing these bodily changes.

    So I’m trying to get pregnant. The calendar says that I ovulate on on the 20th. My husband and I baby danced on that day and I’m currently 9dpo if the calendar is correct. My periods are not regular they come anywhere from 27 to 35 days. They only things I’ve notices since 7dpo is I have really tender Brest , but I also get this as symptom before my period. What should I do and could I be pregnant? I’m not sure when I ovulate and all that on my own I’m going with what the colander says.

    I am due for my period in 3 days. I am having some cramping tonight, increased hunger, tired, sore breast, back pain, headache. I took a test 7 days after ovulation it was negative. No bleeding or white discharge. Can I be pregnant or is it just impending period?

    I am 5 days past ovulation. I have been cramping for days now and I have lower back ache and my nipple feel tingly off and on. Off and on I been feeling a little bit dizzy. I’m not due for my period till the 28th or 29th. Today March 19th I had a little white creamy discharge. What’s this mean?

    Hello. My last period started 2/25, bled around 3-4 days. I had sex 3/1, 3/6 and 3/14, and showed positive home pregnancy test– Dollar Store first , then EPT Digital on 3/21. I had lower back pain 3/10 and 3/11. My cycle is pretty steadily at 28 days–sometimes maybe 27 days (jab period started 1/29, so 2/25 was exactly 28 days later). I have no memory of cervical mucus with the exception of Friday 3/14 where I don’t believe there was any egg white like mucus. I’m trying to pinpoint when I conceived. My instinct is to say on 3/10 from the 3/6 intercourse. It seems like 3/21, just seven days after the intercourse on 3/14 which would have been cycle day 18, seems too early for a positive pregnancy test?

    I had sexual intercourse three times on the same day 9 days ago (March 25), Could I be pregnant ? I had a very light period the day after(March 26) that lasted 7 days(ended April 1). I took a at home test on Tuesday (April 2) and it came out negative. Is it still too early to test?
