How early do signs of pregnancy show up?
I had unprotected intercourse twice,,, (i know stupid) second time he came a little bit inside me, and the rest got on the vaginal area.
I have been feeling very tired, moody,, and very nauseated, lots of headaches...
I read up on the symptoms afterwards, and these things are listed as symptoms of possible pregnancy...
I took a home pregnancy test about a week after the deed took place but it came up negative,,, I'm worried though cause i know the sperm can stay alive inside for a while,,,

Pregnancy symptoms can mimic symptoms of plain old stress. Chill out for now and concentrate on having safe sex instead of stressing more about a possible pregnancy. If the test came up negative a week after, you should be on the safe side. Retest again in a week or two.

Better yet, see your doctor as soon as possible for a more complete blood test. If you haven't been monogamous with that parter and tested negative for STDs with him, you should get an STD workup as well.

Please DON'T continue having unprotected sex. Buy condoms and use them properly, or get on the pill. Otherwise you will cause yourself tons of worry and stress for no good reason - and you'll continue putting yourself at risk for STD's.

Sweetie, "symptoms" are different for individual women and show up at different times for different women.

If you've had a positive, even a faint one, then head to your doctor or other health care provider (like a local Planned Parenthood location or other clinic) to get a blood test and then evaluate your options from there.
