About 5 or 6 days ago i had unprotected intercourse. I was on birth control for about a year and a half and i only have a month and a half left. Trying to conserve; I didn't take my birth control for about 6 days prior to having sex. After he came inside me i found my birth control and i am taking it now. The day after and a few days added to that, I've been feeling nauseated, I've been sleeping 10 to 15 hours at a time, I feel sick to my stomach but not to the point of vomiting. The foods i used to love i dislike; such as chocolates and fries. I took a pregnancy test today and it came up the negative sign, but it was super faded. At first i saw a positive sign but then changed to a negative immediately. What could be wrong with me?

If you only had unprotected sex 5 or 6 days ago, a pregnancy test taken now would not be accurate.

I am unclear when you did/did not use birth control, but the information you need to know:
- If you are using birth control consistently and correctly as directed, it reduces your chances of pregnancy
- If you are not using birth control, you have an increased chance of pregnancy
- The only way to know if you are pregnant is to wait until your next menstrual period. If it does not begin as expected, you can take a home pregnancy test at that time and it will be accurate.
- The only early pregnancy sign is a missed period. Other "signs" too closely mimic pre-menstrual symptoms and are impossible to distinguish the two. It is just speculation on anyone's part whether a particular sign/symptom is pregnancy, pre-menstrual or something else.
