Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you have had the unprotected intercourse after finishing with your last periods or by the end of your periods, you can be at risk for pregnancy as you become closer to your ovulation time (for a regular menstrual cycle of 28-30 days, fertile period can be from day 6-18 of the cycle taking day 1 as first day of your bleeding). The sperms once released inside you can stay alive for 3-4 days. The symptoms that you describe (abdominal cramps, diarrhea, increased sleep, increased tiredness, increased appetite, frequent urination, headaches, lightheadedness, feeling gassy, increased vaginal discharge) could be suggestive of possibility of early pregnancy. Wait and watch for your next periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If you do not get your periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods or if you develop new symptoms suggestive of pregnancy, consider visiting your gynecologist for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet. Be in regular follow-up and monitoring of your treating gynecologist/obstetrician and report any unusual/abnormal/new symptoms immediately.
Take care.
