Thanks for your query.
During the first cycle of using birth control pills, you are protected from pregnancy, that too with only four pills.
Hence an alternative method like condoms is always advised as back up during the first month.
Symptoms of pregnancy would not show up immediately after intercourse, so your sickness and diarrhoea are not related to pregnancy.
If you would be happy with conception, why are you on birth control ?
Because if planning to conceive you should stop the pills and take folic acid tablets instead,
The earliest that pregnancy can be diagnosed is a few days after missing your period , when you can test.

Take care
