    You should wait at least one - two weeks after having sex before taking a test, however, here are some symptoms of pregnancy, check them and then see your doctor

    Tender, swollen breasts

    One of the early signs of pregnancy is sensitive, sore breasts caused by increasing levels of hormones. The soreness may feel like an exaggerated version of how your breasts feel before your period. Your discomfort should diminish significantly after the first trimester, as your body adjusts to the hormonal changes.

    Fatigue

    Feeling tired all of a sudden? No, make that exhausted. No one knows for sure what causes early pregnancy fatigue, but it's possible that rapidly increasing levels of the hormone progesterone are contributing to your sleepiness.

    You should start to feel more energetic once you hit your second trimester, although fatigue usually returns late in pregnancy when you're carrying around a lot more weight and some of the common discomforts of pregnancy make it more difficult to get a good night's sleep

    Nausea or vomiting

    If you're like most women, morning sickness won't hit until about a month after conception. (A lucky few escape it altogether.) But some women do start to feel queasy a bit earlier. And not just in the morning, either — pregnancy-related nausea and vomiting can be a problem morning, noon, or night.

    About half of women with nausea feel complete relief by the beginning of the second trimester. For most others it takes another month or so for the queasiness to ease up.

    Increased sensitivity to odors

    If you're newly pregnant, it's not uncommon to feel repelled by the smell of a bologna sandwich or cup of coffee and for certain aromas to trigger your gag reflex. Though no one knows for sure, this may be a side effect of rapidly increasing amounts of estrogen in your system. You may also find that certain foods you used to enjoy are suddenly completely repulsive to you.

    Abdominal bloating

    Hormonal changes in early pregnancy may leave you feeling bloated, similar to the feeling some women have just before their period arrives. That's why your clothes may feel snugger than usual at the waistline, even early on when your uterus is still quite small.

    Frequent urination

    Shortly after you become pregnant, you may find yourself hurrying to the bathroom all the time. Why? Mostly because during pregnancy the amount of blood and other fluids in your body increases, which leads to extra fluid being processed by your kidneys and ending up in your bladder.

    This symptom may start as early as six weeks into your first trimester and continue or worsen as your pregnancy progresses and your growing baby exerts more pressure on your bladder.

    A missed period

    If you're usually pretty regular and your period doesn't arrive on time, you'll probably take a pregnancy test long before you notice any of the above symptoms. But if you're not regular or you're not keeping track of your cycle, nausea and breast tenderness and extra trips to the bathroom may signal pregnancy before you realize you didn't get your period.

    Your basal body temperature stays high

    If you've been charting your basal body temperature and you see that your temperature has stayed elevated for 18 days in a row, you're probably pregnant

    Good luck.

    sweetie, you cannot tell a couple of days after sex if you are pregnant or not. you will have to wait until your next cycle starts. if and when you get your next period then most probably you are not pregnant. if you are delayed and the last period was over 45 days ago, then you can have a test. just get a test kit in any pharmacy and check it out. it is a normal urine test and very simple. if it is possitive and your period hasen't come yet, well, now would be a good time to check with a obgyn (sometimes called female doctors) to have a lab rest to confirm your condition. there are also non-profit or free health clinics all over where you can call and tell them your situation and they can have a test at no cost to you.

    my advice would be.... if you are pregnant, the person you should go to is your mom. i am a mother and my daughter came to me with the same situation. she is married now for 7 years and has 2 daughters. things can end well.

    if you are not pregnant, please go to a free health clinic and ask them to give you contraceptives or they may suggest other methods so you will not have to go through this again. i am not going to preach about sex before marriage and all that as i know you have heard it all. i just want to make sure you will be safe as you have your whole future ahead of you. be responsible and protect yourself. take care!

  • You will not be able to tell a couple days later. A blood test will show if you are pregnant 7 days following conception. You can take an at home pregnancy test 19 days after the day you think you became pregnant.

    not very likely can you tell within a few days after having sex if you are pregnant or not. You are just going to have to wait for a late period like the rest of us and do a pregnancy test at home.

    If you really aren't pregnant this time, I highly suggest cutting out the sex for a while and get yourself on some good birth control before you start having sex again.

    Just wait like a week or two and see if you are haviing pregnany signs and if you are then get a test the very most important is if you have a missed period or if your having mood swings or eating alot and getting bigger in the tummy, those sort of things there is more but you probably know them but like i said wait a week or two and if you have some signs then take a test get 2 or 3 just in case to be positive and im sure everything will be okay in the end :)

    Your abdomen will start to thicken. Get a pregnancy test and the first day you are late, use the test to be sure.

    SOMETIMES IT DEPENDS ON WHAT TIME OF THE MONTH SHE HAS HER PERIOD, AND WHAT KIND OF PREGNANCY TEST SHE USES.
