Welcome to ehealthforum,
Sometimes your fertility can return even while you breastfeed your baby. If you have had ovulation, you can be at risk of pregnancy if having unprotected intercourse. Pullout/withdrawal method of contraception is associated with highest failures (pre-cum/pre-ejaculatory fluid is known to contain sperms and no man can be 100% sure that pre-cum/pre-ejaculatory fluid did not leak out during vaginal penetration). Your recent symptoms (nausea, changed food preferences, headaches, abdominal cramps, increased tiredness, mood changes, fuller feeling breasts) could also be suggestive of pregnancy. Wait and watch for your periods and look out for development of any new symptoms suggestive of pregnancy. If you do not get periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you develop any new symptoms, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist 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.
Take care.
