Can do a preg. test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon.

Take a test: You can take a pregnancy test right now and in minutes you will have your answer. If negative you will need to see a doctor to evaluate the many other causes of these symptoms
