Could I be pregnant if I had nausea before period, period was very heavy & 3 days early, lasted 5 days & now have nausea again? Sex. Act. Pull out met

Pregnancy unlikely: Since you had a period after sex, you are unlikely to be pregnant. Pull out is not a reliable method of contraception. Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 2-3 weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.
