Brief Answer:
You may get pregnant.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your question.

The probabilities of pregnancy have always been there with unprotected sex.

As you had intercourse in your unsafe period and your ultrasound scan on 16 th ( around ovulation)shows mature follicle and again on 18 th you had unprotected sex and so the probability of pregnancy is more in your case.

I believe your doctor is also thinking that you might get pregnant that is why she prescribed medication which is useful in early pregnancy.

Hope I have answered your query if you have further questions I will be happy to assist you.

My best wishes for your future.

Good luck.
