is it possible to get pregnant if you have unprotected sex days before getting your period?

I am on an ultra low dose 24 day pack bcp, take my pills everyday, and have been since Sept2009. I am currently on my 3rd out of 4 placebo reminder pills. I should be due for my period tomorrow. We had unprotected sex this morning. I also have my partner use the withdrawal method so he does not ejaculate in me. What are the odds that I could be pregnant? I was also wondering if what I'm considering my period tomorrow, could it just be withdrawal bleeding? And if it is, do I have anything to worry about when it comes to preventing pregnancy?

what if I were to have unprotected sex (still using bcp and the withdrawal method) on the day I'd suspect to ovulate? (2weeks after my period ended). Is there a possibility to get pregnant then?

Thank you Susan, I very much appreciate your help! I have another question to ask if that's alright. I understand that having unprotected sex while a woman's on her period, can transmit STD's just like any other genital fluid. Me and my partner are both clean, and were wondering if it would be safe to practice the same form of intercourse, I explained in my previous question, while I'm on my period? (Bcp + Withdrawal)
