you know how some ppl say that you should take a pregnancy test about 5-10 days after you've had unprotected sex, or if you're worried that you might be pregnant? well...say that you suspect you might be pregnant, but then within a space of 2 weeks after sex you have your period...does that mean that you're not pregnant, or is pregnancy still a possibility?

Generally, if you have a normal period that means you aren't pregnant.

The only exception would be if you had unprotected sex immediately before the start of your period, in which case there's apparently a small possibility that sperm might still be viable when you next ovulate, if you ovulated early after your period.
