Is pregnancy possible while on pill within 24 hrs of sex?

Hello, I had sex 6 days ago and I've been nauseous since and every day it gets worse. I've also been dizzy and it's a bit hard to breathe. I took the day after pill within 24 hours after sex. I've taken this pill before and I've never had side effects to it and it's worked fine. Could I be pregnant regardless I took the pill and even though it's really early to even tell?

Hello and welcome to HCM,
The morning after pill is effective in preventing pregnancy when taken within prescribed time.
In the Yutzpe regime, 4 pills are taken, 2 at a time at a gap of 12 hours.
Pregnancy causes nausea but not the very next.
Nausea occurs few weeks after conception when the level of HCG rises.
In case you want to confirm pregnancy, you need to undertake pregnancy test.

Thanks and take care
