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

If your partner did not ejaculate inside the vagina, you cannot become pregnant. You need to estimate your next period date, and take a pregnancy test around that time. If you are feeling unwell a day after sex, it cannot be due to pregnancy. Please consult your PCP regarding this—it can just be stress, stomach bug, anxiety or acidity. Hope this helps. Take care!
