the chances of you becoming pregnant are very few because it is the towards the first half of your cycle. the contraceptive pills take about 7 days for their complete efficacy to come because thats when the hypothalic -pituatry axis get suppressed sufficiently. so you must use a barrier contraceptive along if you want to be doublt sure.
