how long does it take to get symptoms of pregnancy? like vomiting ect. and from the time you had sex or sexual activities, how long would it take for the sperm to get to the egg?

Sperm can live up to seven days within the female body so they have seven days to find a mature egg and impregnate it. I'm not sure about the exact time, but I think that you start having "morning sickness" after about 3-4 weeks of becoming pregnant. Of course if you miss a period, definitely start thinking that you're pregnant.
The best way to avoid unwanted pregnancies though is to take the proper safe sex measures (ie condoms, birth control pills, spermacide, etc) to minimize those chances.
