Okay, it's been about 11 days since I last had sex, and I'm worried about being pregnant, although on another thread I was told I'm probably not pregnant (used two methods of birth control). However, I've been feeling sick for the last four days or so. (It started about 7 days after sex) Is it possible I'm just sick, because it's too early to feel strong symptoms?
Also, if I took a pregnancy test tomorrow, would it be too early? it would a few days under two weeks. After tomorrow, I couldn't take one for another week, and the stress would be really hard to deal with. Thanks!

I figured I should probably state my symptoms: upset stomach, headache, sore breasts (although I should be nearing my period, and upset stomach MIGHT just be gas from stress) as well as a little tiredness. That's about it though.

It really is best to wait until it's been at least two weeks, or until your period's several days late, to take a pregnancy test, so it'll be most effective. The best thing to do is to look at the directions of the test you plan on using as they can be a little different; that way you'll know exactly when you can test!

However, with two forms of birth control used, pregnancy is extremely unlikely. Maybe taking a look at the combined effectiveness rates of two types of bc will help with the wait: The Buddy System: Effectiveness Rates for Backing Up Your Birth Control With a Second Method

Male Condoms + Withdrawal = 99.92% effective with perfect use

So with this statistic, I can feel a bit better?

I realize that I'm being badgering with the same questions that were already answered, I'm sorry. I guess I'm just not comfortable with the methods of birth control I am using, as they don't really put me at ease. I think I need to look into other methods of birth control that would make me feel better.
