I had sex during time of ovulation unprotected and a week/ a week and a half later i started feeling sick to my stomach and cramps and headaches. My breasts also were so so so so so sore. Now my breasts after that sore but still have headaches, some cramps and backaches. Im also supper moody. I checked my cervix today and it was high and firm but i cant tell what a soft or hard cervix feels like. Im supposed to get my period in 4 days. Is this pregnancy or just aunt flow coming on her way? I've also had a lot of white discharge.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you had been sexually active around your ovulation time, then the symptoms that you describe (feeling sick, abdominal cramps, headaches, back pain, mood changes, increase in vaginal discharge) could be few of early symptoms suggestive of pregnancy. Wait and watch for your next periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms. If you suspect pregnancy chances (as suggested by your symptoms), or if periods have not started within 10 days of expected period dates, 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. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
