Welcome to ehealthforum,
Having intercourse few days before your periods usually does not result in pregnancy unless you have had a late ovulation in your menstrual cycle. If semen or pre-cum has come in contact with vagina, and if you are not ready for pregnancy, you should consider going ahead with taking emergency contraception within 24-48 hours of the unprotected sexual contact. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance. Look out for development of any new symptoms. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Consider being in regular follow-up and monitoring of your treating gynecologist and report any abnormal/new symptoms immediately. If pregnancy gets ruled out, and if you are not ready for pregnancy, but intend to remain sexually active, consider visiting your gynecologist to get started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after your periods). Be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact and avoid repeat use of emergency contraceptive.
Take care.
