Thanks for your query.

I would like to know some details about your menstrual cycle , by which I can be able to specifically tell you the chances of pregnancy in you.

When was your last period (date) ?
Are your cycles regular ?
How long is the flow in each cycle ?
When was the intercourse attempted ?
Are you on any medication ?
Do you have fever ?

The symptoms you have can also be seen in many other conditions like urinary tract infections.

Waiting for your reply.

Thanks for the information.

Based on your period dates September 4th to 12th would be fertile period in your cycle and the chances of pregnancy are high if intercourse is attempted during these days.

Even if pregnant the symptoms you mention are not related to it.The symptoms could be due to infection either due to spread of strep from the throat or a new good health.
