Brief Answer:
No chance of pregnancy

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Intercourse during periods will not lead to pregnancy.
Moreover, since you took I pill within24 hours, chances of pregnancy are almost nil.
The next periods are usually delayed by2-3 weeks from the expected date, if you have taken I pill.
I suggest you not to worry.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
