Hi bender81!

Since you only had your period 18 days ago, cramping and backpain would not signal pregnancy. You could be pregnant (or getting there!) from having unprotected sex but you could also be ovulating, depending on the kind of cycle you have.

It's far too early to tell and it's far too early for pregnancy symptoms since you're only half way through your cycle but if your next period is late, then test!

Hi bender

That's true, it does take some time for the body to get back to normal but for now, go by the one period you've had. Ovulation is approximately 14 days after the first day of your period so go from there until you've had your period for a few months.
