Risk of pregnancy: Anytime you engage in unprotected sex there is a risk of pregnancy. there is no way to give the exact odds. It is not unusual for a period to occur the first cycle after getting pregnant flow can range from normal to light. The preejaculate that is present has a large number of sperm also so pulling out is a very risky form of birth control. It also leaves you wide open for STD's.

None: If you have a normal period after having had sex, it is not likely that your uterus will have anything like pregnancy left behind. You can only get pregnant at mid cycle time(days 10-18 of a 28 daycycle

Sounds like you need to consider a better form of birth control, so you don't have to worry as much.
