- Breast pain and enlargement
If those side effects look familiar, it might be because they are also symptoms of pregnancy! When you get pregnant, your progesterone levels increase causing these early pregnancy symptoms. So every (ovulation) month, I get to enjoy the early symptoms of pregnancy without ever being pregnant (yet)! It's very frustrating. My level of symptom-spotting is way down from where it used to be, but the hope never really goes away ... which inevitably leads to hopes being crushed. Not a fun cycle month after month.
I'm not out just yet, but I'm trying to temper my expectations.
