Brief Answer:
Chance of pregnancy is minimal to rare.

Detailed Answer:
Hello Dear,

Thanks for additional input.

1) As your previous cycle was quite irregular, then it is quite difficult to calculate exact SAFE period. In this case, your chance of pregnancy is extremely RARE to MINIMAL as you involved in sex after expected date of period.

2) I can suggest you to take Unwanted 72 or I-Pill (both are same effective) within first 24 hrs or as early as possible to AVOID minimal risk of pregnancy as semen deposited inside.

3) You will get a period like withdrawal bleeding within 3 to 5 days after taking the pill. It is quite common phenomena. However, next cycle may be delayed for 1-2 weeks.

4) You should undergo one home pregnancy test if period delays more than 1 week on next cycle. Practice safe sex in future.

Hope, I have answered your query. Wish your good health and take care.
