Chances of getting pregnant after having unprotected sex while on periods?

Hi, I had a question in regards whether you can get pregnant if you have unprotected sex while on your period. I know its probably not a smart decision, however I am a bit scared now. About 2 weeks before my period started (Jan 6), I took plan B pill . My period came as expected and on the first day of my cycle, me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex. Should I be worried about being pregnant? Should I take another plan B? Im not sure what I should do, please help.

Chance of Pregnancy is high,if unprotected sexual intercourse is done around ovulation time in regular period. Ovulation occurs approx 14 days before due date. Other days have low risk and it varies.
There is no chance of pregnancy if you did sex during period.It is totally safe period.So don't be much worried.No need to take extra plan B.
Practice safe sex with using condom/em pill/safe period and hygienically on those days of cycle.
Be well.

Thanks for your query.
The chances of conception on the first day of the cycle are practically nil.
You cannot take emergency contraception after a delay of 72 hours.
To be absolutely certain, use proper contraception in future, and if overdue next time, check for pregnancy at the earliest.
Take care

Hi Welcome HCM
No ...there is no chance of pregnancy in menstrual cycle.Chances of pregnancy only in Ovulation period which is 10 to 18 days from first day of cycle.
But intercourse in cycle may cause infections for both...
Thank you
