Hi,
Thanks for the query.
In case of 30 to 33 days cycle, ovulation may not occur on around 6th day of cycle usually.
So the chances of pregnancy are less.
If you want to eliminate the minimal possible risk also and if the act occurred within past 72 hours, you can take one emergency pill.
If already 72 hours over form the time of intercourse, the emergency pill may not work.
But don't worry, as the chances of pregnancy are less.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.

Hi,

As you disturbed the regular cycle by taking tablets, now it is little bit difficult to guess the exact time of ovulation.
You can go for ovulation kit to decide the ovulatory period in this cycle.
By taking regesterone you induced withdrawal bleeding. By this the normal rhythm of ovulation, menstruation and hormonal levels will become disturbed and may take some time for regularization.
Now as I told previously you can go for emergency pill or you wait till your expected date of periods and if you miss the periods go for pregnancy test.
Then depending on the result you can proceed further.

Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.

Hi,
Yes, ovulation kit will tell the fertile days in the cycle means the ovulatory period.
It should be used as home pregnancy kit only and it will be usually available in regular pharmacies.
The chances of pregnancy are very less in your case according to the history, so no need to worry.
You leave the thing till your expected date of periods as I told previously.
Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
