Brief Answer:
Very less chances of pregnancy.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to us with your health concern.
So you are due for your periods anytime.
Unprotected sex just before your periods can rarely result in a pregnancy, since chances are very remote that you might ovulate ( produce an egg ) at that time.
So relax.
In the rare event that you miss your period, you can take a pregnancy test after 2 weeks.
However, I do not think that pregnancy is likely.
All the best.
Please feel free to discuss further.
