Brief Answer: Hello Detailed Answer: In view of details possibility of pregnancy seems less likely. To be sure you can get a urine pregnancy test after 2 weeks. For more immediate results lab test may be considered. If pregnancy is ruled out get a ultrasound done to know cause of recent symptoms. Hope this helps. Please ask if there are doubts. Regards.
