Question
I had unprotected sex the whole week I was ovulating. Then about 8 days later I experienced strange cramps, nausea, and lower back pain but later that night I started what I thought was my period but it was lighter and shorter than normal and was a week early. Now I am still experiencing nausea and lower back pain but also frequent urination and change in appetite and fatigue

Answer
Yes, you could be pregnant but I can't diagnose over the internet. Please go to a pregnancy resource center if you want to get a FREE pregnancy test. You can find one at http://www.optionline.org or http://www.heartbeatservices.org and click on the worldwide directory. Please let me know what happens. If you are pregnant, will it be a problem? Write me at Carieichel@aol.com

Thanks.
