Thanks for your query.

The symptoms you mention are seen in pregnancy but not specific to pregnancy.Such symptoms are specifically seen few days before menstruation,this is called Premenstrual syndrome.

I do not consider it to be due to pregnancy here, but still the chances cannot be ruled out completely.Do wait for the periods , if not seen for five days (5th of august) then going for a home pregnancy test would be necessary.

Wish you good health.

Thanks for writing back.

Well the timing of the intercourse is favourable for pregnancy.

But in most the premenstrual syndrome can be seen as early as 10 days prior to the periods.

Based on the dates if pregnancy is to be expected it would have been due to fertilization around
14th or 15th july. Since the symptoms appeared on 17th they could not be considered due
to pregnancy.As such symptoms usually start after 10 days of fertilization.

But best method to rule out pregnancy is by periods and pregnancy test.

Wish you good health.
