Early period after unprotected sex

User Profile
I had unprotected sex (early in the morning) and then two days later i had what seemed to be my period but it was six days early and only lasted for three days. I just wanted to know when will be the best time to take a pregnancy test as this has happened once before when i was pregnant with my daughter, and as i was bleeding when pregnant with her i didnt find out i was pregnant till two months later... i just dont want that to happen again and would rather know sooner than later.
I have had loss of appetite, headaches, smells have been making me sick.. but not to bad and a feeling of butterflies in my stomach... but when pregnant with my daughter all i had was sensitive breasts
when filling out the form i put in my normal period not the one where i bleed for three days
oh and one last thing i had sex approx fifteen days after my period started when i fell pregnant with my daughter... if that helps

Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

Since you had a previous history of bleeding while pregnant and now have loss of appetite, headaches, smells have been making you sick, you should take a pregnancy test on the day you expected your periods originally and see.

This could either be pregnancy or just a seasonal change that is making you feel like that or something you ate. Hope this helps. Take care!
