I got off my period on Saturday and I had unprotected sex on Sunday. I’m not sure. Could I be pregnant?

Anytime you have unprotected sex, there’s a chance of pregnancy — even during your period or right after your period ends. In fact, right after your period you may be even more likely to get pregnant from unprotected sex because you’ve just started a new menstrual cycle and you could start ovulating at any point.

If you want to avoid getting pregnant, use a birth control method like a condom, the pill, the IUD, or the  implant.

If it’s been fewer than 5 days since you had sex without a condom or another birth control method, you can still use emergency contraception to prevent pregnancy.
