There : There is always a possibility of pregnancy when you have had unprotected sex. Obviously the odds are greater around the time of expected ovulation. Ovulation occurs 14 days after the first day of bleeding (day one of your cycle). Conception is usually a few days before or after this occurs. If you are very concerned you can take an early prediction pregnancy test about ten days before your period is due. Lastly, consider discussing birth control options with your doctor. Good luck.
