Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Variation of 5-10 days in periods/menstrual cycle is considered to be normal. The unprotected intercourse can result in pregnancy especially if it is during your fertile days. Pullout method is associated with highest failure rates. You should have considered taking emergency contraception within 48 hours of unprotected sexual contact to prevent pregnancy. Wait and watch for your periods. Do not depend on appearance of symptoms of pregnancy as few women do not experience any symptoms while few women can experience most of the symptoms within 24-48 hours of fruitful intercourse. If you do not start with periods within 10 days of expected period dates or if you develop any new symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy, or if you get abnormal periods, visit your doctor/gynecologist for further examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately) and for further assistance. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
