Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms of flu like symptoms/cold, nausea, headaches, backache, abdominal cramps, dizziness, increased vaginal discharge, increased tiredness, tender breasts that you describe could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. If pregnancy is suspected, you should 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).
If pregnancy gets ruled out, further investigations would be needed to look for the underlying cause for your symptoms. Get started on treatment as indicated by your examination findings/investigation results to help you. 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 and lifestyle.
Take care.
