Welcome to ehealthforum.
Your symptoms (mild stomach cramps, tender and swollen cervix, feeling sick, increased frequency of urination) are suggestive of pregnancy. Look out for other symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy. Visit your healthcare provider/gynecologist for further examination to look for signs of pregnancy and blood HCG tests to confirm/rule out pregnancy. Blood HCG levels can detect pregnancy accurately as early as 11 days post conception, urine tests show positive after missed periods or after about 20 days post conception.
Take care.
