Our expert says:
The symptoms that you describe are not specific to pregnancy and can occur under different circumstances such as hormonal imbalances and also in association with other intestinal related problems as well. Furthermore the timing of the symptoms that you have described is incorrect for pregnancy since pregnancy symptoms occur later when the pregnancy hormone Beta HCG becomes significantly elevated. At the stage you described your symptoms are most likely due to the increase in progesterone levels, which accompany ovulation and demonstrates an increased sensitivity of your body to progesterone.
