Possibility of getting pregnant on having sex on last day of period?

I ended up having sex the last day of my period which was 2 weeks ago. I was wondering if it would be possible to get pregnant then, and if so when would I have to test. My cycles are very irregular so I m not sure how long until I ovulate again. I m having some symptoms but not too sure if its my period showing up again or just in my head. Any help is appreciated.

hi cole,
i read your query,
usually its safe to have intercourse 5 days before and after your menstruation ,no ovulation takes place at that time.
So,you are in safe period and nothing to worry,you wont concieve as you had your periods after intercourse,it makes the chances to zero
if you further had any doubt,just do an HCG card test,its most reliable,
i understand that your stressed and worried about being pregnant,that itself make you feel like having the symptoms of getting pregnant
Regarding irregular periods ,consult an gynaecologist and have an expert opinion
take care

Thanks for your query.
It is almost impossible to conceive, while you are having your period.
However, there are cases reported, although rare.
Also, since your periods are irregular, your ovulation also would be erratic, which is all the more reason for you to use protection all throughout your cycle.
You would not be able to take a pregnancy test reliably, as on account of the irregular cycles, either a positive or a negative result would not hold much relevance.
You have to consult a gynecologist who would rule out a pregnancy, and also provide you guidance for the irregular cycles.
take care.
