Welcome to e health forum.

Chances of pregnancy in healthy woman, after a single episode of unprotected sexual intercourse is only about 20-25 %, provided the woman has a healthy and regular menstrual cycles, the intercourse occurred during the fertile period of her menstrual cycle (day 12 - 16 of the menstrual cycle of 28 days).

Having sex in the days out of this fertile period (that is day 1 to 11 & 17 - 28 ) would be less likely to result in pregnancy, and it is considered to be the Safe period.

If you were in your ovulatory phase when you had sex, and you think, you might be pregnant, then the only way it can be confirmed would be by doing a urine pregnancy test. If the test is positive, you might consult your doctor immediately who can provide necessary help and advice with regard to future steps to manage your pregnancy.

I hope this helps.
