If you have had sexual intercourse after your last menstrual period, then it is possible that you are pregnant. Pregnancy can be more likely if the sexual intercourse you had before occurred during the fertile period (the period around ovulation). As for women who are pregnant generally will experience the following signs:
Signs may include nausea, dizziness, swollen and painful breasts, fatigue, weakness, mood swings, frequent urination, difficulty defecating, late menstruation. Uncertain signs, can be a positive test pack result. fetal skeleton or the sound of the fetal heartbeat through ultrasound examination. However, you also need to know that a normal menstrual cycle can still occur up to 35 days. In addition, swelling and pain in the breasts can occur due to other causes besides pregnancy, for example due to hormonal changes before menstruation, mastitis (inflammation of the breast parenchyma glands), breast abscess, side effects of drugs, skin infections around the breasts, and so on.
Therefore, you should be patient for another 3 to 7 days. If it is true that your menstrual period still does not come, you can do a test pack or go to an obstetrician and gynecologist directly so that pregnancy detection can be done via ultrasound.
In the meantime, you can first compress your swollen and sore breasts using warm water while getting plenty of rest and always use a bra and clothes that are comfortable, made from soft, also not too tight.
