Is it safe to have unprotected sex 3-4 days after my period?

I ended my period on Tuesday and was just spotting on Wednesday as a sign that my period was going to end. Today is Friday, and I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend. He didn't cum inside me and I took Emergency Contraceptives right after. Am I safe?

Hello Anonymous,

Was it protected sex? Are you on birth control? Did he wear a condom?
Did your last period start on January 9? Were you still having your period when you had sex?
How long is your menstrual cycle?

If you were still having a period flow when you had sex, there was no possibility of becoming pregnant.

Hello Anon

Pregnancy is certainly possible. You can take a test as soon as you miss your period.
Good luck!

Hello Anon

We can't say if you're safe but your risk is probably lower than if you were closer to mid-cycle.

Been ttc.had my periods Nov29 and then Dec21, had unprotected sex Dec24 when the flow was already very light,though the light spottings ended on 26th. Is there a chance i might conceive? Can i take PT as early as now? My partner is out of town for work and won't be back by the end of the month. Hope to give him good news.

Hello Anon

A pregnancy test is accurate as soon as you miss your period or if a specific early test - then up to five days before. If you had sex during your period, your odds are very low; you need to have sex during ovulation.
