Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms that you describe could be suggestive of pregnancy if you had been sexually active after finishing with your periods as you become closer to your ovulation time after finishing with periods. If you had been during your fertile days and if fertile mucus had been present at the time of intercourse, sperms can stay alive for 5-7 days and fertilize the egg upon ovulation. After ovulation, egg has only 24-48 hours to get fertilized. Wait and watch for your next periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If periods are abnormal, 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. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
