i have some symptoms i get dizzy , cramps, eat a lot ,

Getting : Getting pregnant a week before your period is a definite possibility. Anytime a fertile woman has a missed or light period after unprotected sex, then a pregnancy test is warranted. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period. A blood test can tell if you are pregnant as soon as 7 days after conception and a doctor's urine pregnancy test can tell if you are pregnant around when you next period should come. Good luck! ...Read more
