Early Pregnancy Signs and Symptoms Answer A39283
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out completely if the unprotected sexual contact was close to your during fertile days/around ovulation time. 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. The recent symptoms that you describe could suggest pregnancy possibility. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If pregnancy is suspected, or if you miss your periods, or if you have abnormal periods, or if your usual periods do not start 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.
Take care.
