when pregnant, when do you start getting nausea? is it right after you have sex or does it take a while

Most women start experiencing NVP symptoms early in their first trimester (for example in weeks 2, 3, and 4) after missing their menstruation. Some women have reported to us feeling nauseous right from the time of conception -- but those reports are infrequent.

Since nausea might also be an indication of other conditions, you may want to discuss it with your doctor to confirm the pregnancy and related NVP symptoms.
