The past weeks I have been feeling dizzy, nausea, bloated, constipated and feeling sick on my stomach most of the time when I eat except when I'm really hungry. I also had cramps the past week but I'm due to get my period on the 28 of january. I have had unprotected sex. Can it be the first symptoms of pregnancy?
Welcome to ehealthforum.
If you had been sexually active without protection during your fertile days, then the symptoms of dizziness, nausea, bloating, constipation, feeling sick, abdominal cramps could suggest chances of pregnancy. Wait and watch for your periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
