I have been feeling nauseous on and off for a few days alongside sore breasts. I also recently had a very, sudden period which only lasted a few hours

If you have had menstruation related or associated vaginal bleeding , but in a very limited pattern, and you have been recently sexually active, then there is a possibility of pregnancy, and the bleeding you had could be due to implantation bleeding.

Implantation bleeding - This is seen in 33 % women who are sexually active, and seen about 5-10 days after conception, which coincides just around the time of the regular cycles. The bleeding is scant and colored pinkish or brown.

This bleeding can sometimes confuse women who think that their period has come early, but only realize they are pregnant weeks later.

In such cases, a pregnancy test after 1 week of the missed or scanty period should be done. If the test is negative, but there are still strong doubts, tests with blood sample or ultrasound can be done to rule out pregnancy.

If all the tests are negative, then it can be concluded that you are not pregnant.

I hope this helps.
