If you are not trying to become pregnant, having unprotected sex is not a good idea at any time. Ovulation is a tricky thing and can occur early, late or on time. There is a reason the rhythm method is not very successful. Plan B should not be used as a contraceptive measure. Best recommendation is to have a pregnancy test a week after your missed period, when it should be accurate.
