Thanks for your query.
Having unprotected intercourse on the fourth day of your period has very less possibility of resulting in pregnancy.
However, as your period was 10 days earlier, it appears that you have irregular periods, and hence ovulation cannot be predicted with such cycles.
Emergency contraceptive pills are almost 95 % effective if taken within 24 hours, hence I would opine that your overall chances of having a pregnancy are very remote.
However, please take a urine pregnancy test if you miss your period by 4 - 5 days to be absolutely sure of not being pregnant.
Take care, and feel free to ask further questions.
