Hi there, i have been off work 3 days as i have been throwing up, cant eat, have sore boobs, lower back pain, stomach cramps and headaches. I had a normal period last month and me and my partner are actively trying for a baby. I think i am too early to tak a pregnancy test as my last period was the 17th october. Please could you give me some advice.

Early Pregnancy Signs and Symptoms Answer A40179
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms (vomiting, nausea, sore breasts, low back pain, abdominal cramps, headaches) that you describe could be few of early symptoms suggestive of pregnancy if you have been sexually active around ovulation time. Few women can experience early symptoms suggestive of pregnancy as early as 48 hours after fruitful intercourse. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. Wait and watch for your usual periods. If periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, 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. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
