Probably not, but there's always a chance.  If your cycle is regular, I think ovulation usually occurs 2-3 weeks after your cycle ends.  So, I'd read over the pregnancy symptoms and keep an eye on your body and signs, and of course wait 2-3 weeks and take a pregnancy test.  For me, I had my LMP 2/14 and conceived around the 1st wk of March (according to the ovulation testing strips and my basal temp).  Within 1-2 weeks, I noticed differences in my body (achy breasts, etc.) and took a test, which was just faintly positive.  A few days later, it was strongly positive.Good luck!

anytime you have sex, there's a chance that you could get pregnant. if your not planning a baby, DO NOT have unprotected sex. I was only having sex durin infertile times in my cycle and using the pull out method when i concieved my daughter. you should definitely take a test 3-6 after the encounter.

Usually your most fertal days 2 weeks before your period is supposed to start.  so I doubt you are pregnant.  But just to be sure, take a test.  I knew I was pregnant a week before my period was expected.  All of the sudden I craved carbs and for me to crave anything was odd.  i was also tired all the time, and the migranes that usually hit the week before my period didn't come. Good luck

Unprotected sex can cause pregnancy... news flash!!  Timing isn't as important as you think, every menstrual cycle is different.
