Welcome to ehealthforum,
Having intercourse while being on the periods usually does not result in pregnancy as the chances of egg being present in your system is nil. If condom is used during intercourse, it is an added protection to ensure that sperms are not in vagina (sperms once released inside female reproductive tract can stay alive for 3-5 days). Wait and watch for your next periods. Look out for development of any new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance.
Take care.
