Brief Answer:
Urine test will confirm pregnancy.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The spreading and darkening of areola can be due to hormonal changes related to pregnancy. Taking birth control pills or regular sexual activity can also cause such a change. But it is not a confirmatory sign of pregnancy. Since you had sex on 11th you can test your urine now to see if it is positive. Usually the test comes positive 12-14 days after having sex.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
