On sunday I had sex, used condom and pill. On monday I felt fine, by monday night I had a really bad headache. On tuesday, I started to feel a bit nauseous and my eyes are red and itchy. Tuesday night I felt better, and went to a party, I had a couple of coolers. Wednesday morning, I feel a bit nauseous again, and my breasts are very slightly sore (or it could be paranoia telling me that they are any more sore than usual) So - how soon do you feel the effects of pregnancy? could I be pregnant or just getting sick? and about sore breasts: is it uncommon for them to be sore at varying times in a woman's cycle. Usually mine get sore before my period (which isnt for another two weeks) but sometimes, my breasts will randomly get sore too...
Please tell me what you think, I am getting really nervous. Just because I thought nausea and breast tenderness were effects of pregnancy... And how long do you have to wait to try a pregnancy test? Thanks.
(I should also mention that my aunt who was sick with the flu visited me on monday or tuesday- but she was well again when she visited, could she still have passed a virus on to me?)

Pregnancy symtpoms do not appear within the first few days of pregnancy (and bear in mind that if, for example, you had sex on Sunday and DID become pregnant, that may not even have occurred yet, but could occur tomorrow, based on the way reproduction works). However, symptoms of being nervous and stressed out seem to commonly happen almost immediately afterwards, as is pretty clear from a lot of posts on these boards.
If you are on the pill and used a condom properly, it's safe to say your risk of pregnancy is basically, totally nil.
Sore or tender breasts are a very common thing to have right before menses, FYI.
getting sick is getting sick. your aunt could have passed the flu to you, but you could have gotten it from darn near anybody.
Menses are not the same things as a [/i]menstrual cycle[/i]. Menses is the actual bleeding. The menstrual cycle is the sequence of events that lead up to and follow menses.
And breast soreness tends to occur before menses in most women who experience such soreness. But soreness can have other causes including injury or disease (like cancer). In these cases you may need to see a doctor.
