Hello,

Unprotected sex during period or prior to due date is very much safe if your previous cycle was regular. Two weeks following period, spotting and abdominal cramp may occur due to ovulation. It is quite normal. It is too early to detect ectopic pregnancy. You need to wait for next coming period and if it is missed, you can undergo one blood test for beta-HCG to rule out pregnancy. TVS scan gives additional information. Practice safe sex in future. Maintain genital hygiene and take some analgesics.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
