Possible: Not all bleeding is your period, so if you're having unprotected sex you should always consider the possibility of being pregnant. Check a pregnancy test. If its negative it might just be some bleeding associated with your recent period.

Might not be...: Any woman of childbearing age who has some nausea (with or without vomiting), some fatigue (feels less energetic), a sharper/stronger sense of smell, mild soreness/swelling of her breasts, and maybe some food aversions and cravings . . . Could be pregnant if she's had sex recently. Symptoms can occur before missing a period. A urine pregnancy test is accurate if done 3 weeks after having sex.

Its possible: Spotting can be caused by so many things. For example, its not uncommon to spot after intercourse. Pregnancy is only one of many possible causes. If you want to be certain, get a pregnancy test.

Not likely: You would always start your period 14 days after ovulation. You had sex 5 days before your period which was 9 days after ovulation. You could not conceive 9 days after ovulation. You can still take a pregnancy test just to be sure.

Don’t guess.: Take a test.  they are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period.  if you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection.
