Doctor

A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.
I understand your concern.
If you had unprotected intercourse around the time of ovulation there is possibility of pregnancy.
To get accurate result you have to do the urine pregnancy test one week after missed period or 3 weeks after unprotected intercourse.
According to your description the symptoms could be due to pelvic infection also, which can present with abdominal cramps, backache, vaginal discharge etc.
If the symptoms persist, better to consult your doctor, get examined and take treatment.
Take care.
