A home pregnancy test can tell you if you're pregnant. Take a test no sooner than 10 days after sex.

You have nausea and tenderness of the breast are you pregnant?

The only way to tell if you are pregnant is first have you had a period in the last two months. Are you on birth control, if you are on any form of birth control you are not pregnant and if you have just come off of birth control you are not pregnant. If you haven't had a period and aren't on birth control start with a home pregnancy test if it comes back negative your not pregnant. If it comes back positive then go to your OBGYN and get a blood test and if the blood test comes back negative you aren't. Nausea and breast tenderness are not tell tale signs of a pregnancy those symptoms can happen for a number of reasons.

Does it matter how many days you start taking birth control pills after your period?

Usually, they tell you to start taking your birth control WHILE you have your period, because your protection from getting pregnant starts immediately.

It doesn't matter when you start, but keep in mind to use extra protection for the first month.

What will they ask when getting birth control?

i first got my birth control at tapestry health clinic. the reason i got it was because i had unprotected sex and wasnt sure if i was pregnant. first i got Plan B, or the morning after pill. shortly i went back and asked to get on birth control. they ask you questions about what kind of birth control you want, the pill, the ring, or patches...etc. they also ask why you and it and personal questions about your partner(s). they ask about your period and tell you when to start taking it and if you have any questions. this may differ if you go to your doctor for birth control.
