Ask The Midwife: How Soon Can Pregnancy Symptoms Appear?
I would like to know can I experience pregnancy symptoms a day after unprotected sex. From the day I had sex I have been feeling really tired and nauseated. Are these signs of pregnancy or something else?
Our midwife Melissa says:
Usually it takes at least a few days and often a few weeks until pregnancy symptoms start. It would be more likely that the symptoms that you are experiencing are related to another cause.
Generally the first symptoms of pregnancy start at around 6 weeks of pregnancy, and the most common symptom are tiredness, breast sensitivity / soreness and nausea.
