Welcome to e health forum.

FYI, Pregnancy can occur, only when ejaculation occurs within the vagina, and when the woman is within the fertile period of your cycle. This period is from day 12 to day 16 of a 28 day menstrual cycle.

Having sex in the days out of this fertile period (that is day 1 to 11 & 17 - 28 ) would be less likely to result in pregnancy, and it is considered to be the Safe period.

Since you had sex within the safe period of your cycle, there is no reason to worry about possible pregnancy.

Taking emergency contraceptive pills should be only in case, when you are supposed to be in the unsafe period. Taking the pill outside of this period does not provide any use, but can cause side effects which you have been experiencing.

There is no need for any treatment as the symptoms will subside on there own.

I hope this helps.
