User :   I am a 20 year old female. My boyfriend came home from leave from Germany for two weeks. Needless to say we had a very active sex life. I am on birth control and was at the time. He did not use a condom which we both agreed on. he left on the 6th of jan and around the 9th of Jan I started spotting and feeling very fatigued. Both are abnormal for me. My period is always on time and I get a full 8 hours of sleep. I also noticed an increase in my breast size. I was wondering if this might be early signs of pregnancy and if it's possible to have signs this early? Our first of intercourse would have been on the Christmas day ending on Jan 6th.
