What are the after effects of quitting smoke?

I quit smoking five days ago and had sex 11 days ago. Over the last three days, I have had nausea, acid reflux, breast tenderness, cramps, and increase urination. It is still two and a half weeks before my period is due, so I assume it is too early to test for pregnancy. I have heard that many of the symptoms I m experiencing could be due to quitting smoking withdrawal symptoms. Which is more probable? Am I pregnant or withdrawing?

HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

You can test for pregnancy approximately 11 to 14 days after possible conception so you can consider doing a pregnancy test after a few more days to make sure that you have an accurate result.
This would determine if you are pregnant.

Nausea, cramping can occur with nicotine withdrawal but not usually reflux, breast tenderness and increased urination.

I hope this helps
