I just wanted to see if I could get some help from the people in this forum to answer my question. My period was two weeks early this month, and I had unprotected sex a little more than 2 weeks before I had this early period. Could this mean that I am pregnant? I did not think my period was different than most others, it just was very early: 2 weeks!! I had really bad constipation the week before the early period, which never happens to me. Therefore I felt very bloaded during the entire time when I was constipated. Then I get this early period, and I thought that was strange. I would appreciate all the comments I can get.
Thank you very much! My early period came the 10th, I was no supposed to get it till around the 24th of December. Also, last night when I went to bed I thought that I felt like I was coming with the flu. Spent all night feeling bad, although I felt asleep and then did not notice it. But this morning I woke up feeling really miserable and weak. I felt like I was hurting all over, and I felt nauseous upon standing. I layed down all day, woke up at 4 feeling just fine. I thought I was getting the flu but now I feel fine. I thought that was strange. Also, in the morning I took my temperature and it was 99.9, so definitely a slight fever. And now I feel fine. Could this be a symptom of pregnancy. The one day "flu-like" symptoms and early period as well as the constipation and the only signs ive experienced that are different for me.
Thank you!

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The early bleeding/spotting that you describe could be suggestive of probable implantation bleeding (that usually occurs around 6-12 days after ovulation/fruitful intercourse) if you had been sexually active around your ovulation time. The symptoms that you describe (early bleeding, constipation, bloating, flu like symptoms, elevated body temperature, sleep disturbances, increased tiredness) could be few of early symptoms suggestive of pregnancy. Look out for development of any other new symptoms. Wait and watch for your usual periods or observe the current bleeding/spotting that you describe. 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 and lifestyle.
Take care.
