I have been having multiple symptoms of being pregnant and it has been three weeks since I have had sex. Is it too early to take a test?

In brief: No, current tests…

…are quite sensitive within a couple days of conception.
If you've missed a period, have breast tenderness, feel nauseated, etc, by all means do an otc pregnancy test. Be sure to be taking prenatal vitamins, & if test is positive (or equivocal) see an OB for prenatal care. Ob can confirm pregnancy with blood test if you're still uncertain. Good luck.
