Could i be pregnant, am having symptoms but it could be anything?

So I always have irregular periods so I'm never sure when "I'm late" (I always bleed twice a month) so the last time I had sex was on may 11th but I'm having some symptoms like shortness of breath, nausea, cramping but no blood, odd food cravings and stronger sense of smell, and dizziness, extreme exhaustion  ( but I on a side note have a skin yeast infection on my whole body, which I looked up that is could cause some symptoms that I'm having) I have not had any bleeding at all for this month which is werid for me because my hormone imbalance causes me to bleed twice a month. My husband and I did use a condom as protection but due to having deep vein thrombosis  I cannot use hormonal birthcontrol. I'm not sure when to take a home pregancy test due to being irregular all the time... is there a possibility that I'm pregnant?

You can get a positive pregnancy test 2.5 weeks after sex if you conceived.  You will have a harder time judging if your period is irregular and you have break through spotting.  Symptoms are not a really great way to judge if you are pregnant as they can mimic other things or even just be pms.  Especially if your hormones are wacky (which makes you irregular).  So, wait 2.5 weeks, take a test.  May 11 would be WAY too soon to have symptoms.  You have to have enough hormones in your system to trigger a test AND that's what causes symptoms.  If you don't have enough hormones for a positive test, you probably wouldn't have enough for symptoms either.  Let us know how it turns out!

You can take a pregnancy test 2.5 weeks after sex but as I answered on your other thread, you most certainly are not pregnant.  good luck
