What's the possibility of me being pregnant?

Long story short May 4 I hooked up with a guy and we had unprotected sex every day of the week for 8 days straight. My period was scheduled to come around May 22 but last Tuesday the 16th I went to the bathroom and noticed a light pink tint. So I put a pad on because I usually bleed very heavy but by the end of the day nothing just light pink spotting. The next day still just light pink spotting. By the end of the day I actually got a heavier flow. But only when I wiped. This has lasted three days. My periods usually start full blown and last about 5 days. I only changed my pad about once a day. When my period ended the 19th it ended with just spotting. We did have unprotected sex during all this as well. So what could be my chances of pregnancy?

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for your message.

There is always some risk of becoming pregnant when you have unprotected sex. Having your period, even if a lighter one, indicates you are not pregnant. Unless it was just minor spotting. Take a home pregnancy test to ease your mind.
