Is this a sign that i can be pregnant ?

Patient

Q: I had sex about three days ago and since then i am having a slightly cramp on my left lower side of stomach

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for contacting askthedoctor.com

If you have had sex just 3 days back , then pregnancy cannot be established in just 3 days and it cannot be detected either. The lower abdominal pain may be because of other gastrointestinal reasons but not due to pregnancy.
However if you happen to miss your periods then you may perform a urine pregnancy test to ascertain pregnancy.
I hope i have answered your query,
regards
