In brief: Of course

Anyone having intercourse without birth control or condoms is at risk of getting pregnant.
If sperm is deposited in the vagina then pregnancy is possible. Ovulation occurs before you have a period. Plan b would decrease risk if intercourse was less than 72 hrs ago. Otherwise check a pregnancy test is about 10 days.
