Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the queryThough the cycles have been irregular, there are likely possibilities of pregnancy, consid ering the unprotected intercourse and the symptoms you have which simulate an early pregnancy.Kindly consult a gynecologist and get a beta hCG test done and rule out pregnancy.In case the result is negative, we must rule out other causes like thyroid dysfunction, prolactin hormone changes, stress induced causes, pill side effects, hormonal imbalances and polycystic ovaries, etc causing irregular cyclesYou may need to undergo a few blood and hormonal tests and an ultrasound as well.The doctor may wish to treat you with hormonal supplements or birth control pills for a few cycles, depending on the diagnosisHope this helped.Regards
