feeling sick, like I want to throw up, but cant.

User Profile
I had my period on Feb 1st for 4 days like always. I have never had irregular periods. I stopped taking BC on the 9th, had sex on the 10th. Then on the 12th i bleed brown for two days. Mucasy. I have been really tired, no appetiate in the last 3-4 days.
So besides the brown bleeding, no appetiate, and being really tired, I have very very very mild cramping here and there, and a little headache here and there.

I usually eat like a horse every day, I haven't touched food in two days. I am also feeling sick, like I want to throw up, but cant.
I am also just now getting a runny nose and itchy eyes. I am not supposed to get period for another 1.5wks

Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

If you stopped your BC on 9th day of period, and had unprotected sex on 10th day, the yes there is a possibility that you are pregnant. The bleed you had two days later could be withdrawal bleed or it could be due to ovulation. Since sperms live for about 72 hours to 4 days at times, there is a possibility that you conceived if you ovulated 2 days later.

The only way to confirm is take a blood pregnancy test about 4-5 days before your next due date or to be 100 percent sure, wait until your next due date, then take a pregnancy test. Hope this helps. Take care!
