Unlikely but possibl: Hi! If you mean you had sex 4 days after your period STARTED (and it was a normal period), then chances of pregnancy are practically nil because need at least 7 days from start of cycle for ovulation to occur. If, however you had sex 4 days after period FINISHED, then it IS possible to get pregnant if you bled for >5days and your cycles are 21-25 days long.

Unlikely: In order to conceive you must first ovulate, then have the sperm fertilize this egg. It really depends on your menstrual cycle patterns. Do you have a menstrual cylce every 28 days like clockwork? If so, you would ovulate 14 days prior to the onset of a normal menstrual cycle. Thus, no ovulation the day before menses and no pregnancy. If cycles are irregular, ovulation can be unpredictable.

Possibly: You can only get pregnant when you are ovulating, which is normally in the middle of your cycle (usually day 14 of a 28 day cycle). However, some people ovulate at different times. Men's sperm can remain active for up to 2-3 days. With so many variations and irregularities, it is safe to assume that you could get pregnant anytime you have unprotected intercourse.

Probably not: If you ovulate at the usual mid-cycle time, then it's unlikely you are pregnant. If your next period is different than usual or skips, check a pregnancy test.

It's possible: Probably not, but why worry? Do a urine pregnancy test. If it's negative, do another in a week. Then do something about birth control.

Fairly high: This would place you close to ovulation and at a high fertility time.Use contraception every time unless you are trying to get pregnant.
