Hi There ,Im 31, & lost my virginity a few weeks ago. We had unprotected sex on the 17 Aug, 5 days after my period began. I had felt quite sensitive (bodily that is), for a few days, but i understand that was to be expected. On the 30Aug we had unprotected intercourse again. On 4sep i experienced a brown disharge(light) to orange colour for a day. On 6th Sep i got my period (was very abnormal as my cycle is normally 2 -3 days light and this was extremely heavy for 5days). Im currently having a light orange-pink discharge. I am a bit scared to take a pregnancy test (even at this age!).For the past 14 days, i have been extremely tired - literally keep falling asleep and lethargic.Im now getting about 10 hours of sleep (i have for the past 13 years slept 5 -6hours),my breasts are sore-i have been measured2 be almost 2 cup sizes larger than i was a mth ago, have severe headaches, dizziness, bloating, & aversion to certain foods, nauseaseous(nt vomiting)? cud i be pregnant? Worried...

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms that you describe (aversion to certain foods, nausea, bloating, dizziness, severe headaches, growing breast size, sore breasts, increased sleep, increased tiredness, altered periods) could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. Unprotected intercourse after finishing with periods puts you at risk for pregnancy (as you get closer to your ovulation time/egg release from ovary after finishing with your periods). Wait and watch for your next periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. Consider visiting your gynecologist for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet. Be in regular follow-up and monitoring of your treating gynecologist/obstetrician and report any unusual/abnormal/new symptoms immediately.
Take care.
