Welcome to ehealthforum,
Few women can start experiencing symptoms as early as 48 hours after fruitful intercourse. The appearance of symptoms depends on how your body reacts to the changing hormonal status during pregnancy. The intercourse during your peak fertile days or closer to your ovulation day is likely to result in pregnancy. If fertile mucus had been present at time of intercourse, sperms can stay alive for 5-7 days and fertilize the egg upon ovulation. After ovulation, egg has only 24-48 hours to get fertilized. Wait and watch for your periods. Look out for development of any new symptoms. If the symptoms suggestive of pregnancy are persistent, or if your usual periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you have got abnormal periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, visit your doctor/gynecologist for further 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 care.
