So about a week and I half ago my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex. The past three days I have felt odd. Super exhausted all the time. And I woke up one morning and my uterus was soreish. Like noticably sore. And later that night my uterus was sollwen/bloated and felt heavy. My loswer abdomen has been bloated for the past few days and my boobs have been more full. Also I have been feeling pressure in my lower sides and lower back. I have been peeing CONSTANTLY! Which is really odd for me cuz its like my trips to the rest room has trippled... I have been getting mild cramps. But not normal period cramps. I wouldn't be asking but my uterus has been feeling and doing off stuff that never happens before I start my period. I have been getting faint dizzispells when I get up sometimes and hot flashes. Also, the other day I was CRAVING cheesy food so I made mac and cheese and grilled cheese! Lol. I can cry on the drop of a dime. My last period was ib the 23rd of october and lasted 6 days. I always get my period at the end of the month. So I know its not coming anytime soon. My boobs aren't sore though. The uterus and constantly peeing has really tripped me out because I've never felt this before. I know sometimes women can make them think they are pregnant. I just wanna know someone's opinion. :)

Hello shortney511,

I can appreciate your concerns about this variety of symptoms and are wondering what is the cause.

If the only time that you had unprotected sex since your last period was a week and a half ago, it would be too early for pregnancy symptoms and a bit too early to test for pregnancy.

Only during pregnancy is the hormone known as hCG produced. It is secreted by the cells that form the placenta. Levels of hCG can be detected in blood about 11 days following unprotected sex and in urine about 12 to 14 days after conception.

I suggest you wait for your period for this month to start. If you are late one week or more, take a home pregnancy test. Or you could contact your physician, schedule an appointment to discuss your symptoms and have a blood pregnancy test done at that time.

It is possible that you have a virus that is causing you to feel lightheaded and nauseous.
