Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  It all depends, if you had unprotected sex on your fertile days.  Then, your chances are higher for pregnancy to occur.  Not everyone is the same, a woman usually ovulates between day 11-21 of a cycle.  You might want to use condoms to avoid pregnancy or you will need to discuss with your doctor the best type of birth control for you.

Here are some resources for you
