Welcome to ehealthforum,
The chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out completely. You are closer to your probable ovulation time after your periods. Sperms once released inside of you, can stay alive for upto 3-4 days. If you have the ovulation early in your cycle, pregnancy can definitely result. Fertile days for a 28 day cycle are between day 6th – day 16th of the menstrual cycle taking day 1 as first day of bleeding. If you are not ready for conception/pregnancy, you can consider taking emergency contraception within first 48 hours of the unprotected intercourse.
Take care.
