I had inprotected sex the day right after my period ended but he pulled out. Its only been a couple weeks now but I've felt dizzy and kind of nauseated though I have not thrown up. I've had a couple headaches and now I am feeling unbearable hunger no matter how much I eat I still feel hungry. My breast also have been sore & I have bumps around my nipples? I'm not sure if all this is just a coincidence but can it be early pregnancy symptoms? Its too early for me to take a test.

Any time you have unprotected sex you risk pregnancy. However, the day after your period ends is a day that is not as risky as some others, and the symptoms you describe could easily be PMS.

Take a breath, and just wait. I think you'll get your period and it will be fine. If you miss it, take a home pregnancy test. Please make a plan for birth control so you don't have to go through this again.

Good luck.

Thank you!
But I keep having a feeling of hunger even when I eat. I just finished eating but my stomach feels so hungry. I can't quite explain the feeling. Any idea what that can be? Should I go to the doctor?

That is also a common problem with PMS. If you are concerned, definitely see your health care provider, though. You know your body best, so if you are worried or think something is off, it doesn't hurt to get checked out.

Foods higher in fiber are more filling, like vegetables and whole grain. I don't know what your diet is like but maybe increasing fiber will help you feel more full.

Good luck.
