Possible but rare: Anyone having intercourse without birth control or condoms is at risk of getting pregnant. If this was within 72 hours and you do not desire pregnancy then take Plan B over the counter. You will be able to do a home pregnancy test in about 10 days. Use condoms and schedule a visit for birth control. Sex last week is not related to cramping now. If that continues it should be evaluated separately.

Very unlikely, but..: In order to get pregnant, intercourse must occur around the time of ovulation (releasing an egg). Ovulation usually takes place about two weeks after menstruation, which makes it unlikely (but not 100% impossible) you would become pregnant from intercourse around the time of your period. If you are trying to avoid pregnancy, be sure to discuss effective birth control options with your doctor.

Possible?: If you have had unprotected sex, you can be pregnant. No one can say without testing. You situation would place you in the non-pregnancy time but unexpected things happen! if you are late, just check it out.

Possibly: Pregnancy is always a possibility in these cases. Take a home pregnancy test. If it's negative, repeat it in a week and see your doctor.

Possible: If you are not bleeding, you can be close enough to ovulation to conceive. Take your prenatal vitamins in any event.

Possible: Yes. It is possible if the sex was unprotected. If there is still viable sperm remaining in the woman's body by the time of ovulation then pregancy could occur. However, it would be more likely to occur if intercourse was closer to time of ovulation.
