Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you have intercourse after your periods and before ovulation, chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out. Sperms once released inside female reproductive tract can stay alive for upto 3-4 days. The egg once released from ovary can stay alive for 6-7 days. Wait and watch for your periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy. If you do not get your periods or if you suspect to be pregnant, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation/examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet.
