Brief Answer:
No possibility of pregnancy.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HCM.
Thank you for the query. I understand your concern.

Normally ovulation occurs on day 14 after period, if cycles are regular. You had unprotected intercourse just after her period which comes under SAFE period. There is NO CHANCE OF PREGNANCY here.
On top of that she has taken I pill which excludes all possibilities of pregnancy. I can assure you this much. So kindly relax. Take all necessary precaution if you want to avoid unnecessary pregnancy in future.

Hope this helps.

Thank you Sir, I wrote 21 in my previous question that I wanted to denote her age is 21 years . Her period was lasts from 17 th to 20 th & we had a unprotected sex on day of 21st on evening of this month , was the unprotected sex safe on that day ? One more thing Sir I would like to ask you what's the exact day he will begin to ovulate after completion of her period (20 th) ?

Brief Answer:
Yes, it is safe....

Detailed Answer:
Welcome back.
Thank you for the follow up query.

You had unprotected sex during SAFE period. Hence NO chance of pregnancy.
Have no doubts regarding this.

Coming to ovulation, If her monthly cycles are regular, then she will ovulate on 14th day (assuming her cycle length is 28 days) ie she may ovulate on 3rd or 4th of next month.
Once again this is a calendar method which is highly unreliable. To know the exact date of ovulation she needs to undergo Follicle growth scan which can give definite details.

Hope I have cleared all of your doubts.

Take care, Bye.
