Since you have started your period, you are not pregnant.

If you're not sure whether or not your boyfriend ejaculated, you can ask him. He would know. Regardless, be aware that precum can also contain sperm, and therefore pose a risk.

Also, having unprotected sex puts you at risk for STIs as well as pregnancy. So if you and your partner are not up to date on STI checks, now would be a good time to start.

In future, it's best for your health (and peace of mind) to just use a condom. Feels better, too, as it reduces the friction some.

It is highly unlikely that you got pregnant if your period came after you had unprotected sex. (Are you sure it's your period and not just some bleeding ? Because it's not the same thing.) Though it is not entirely out of the realm of possibility.

While it is very true that you have a low risk of being pregnant, i feel i must tell you this:
Sperm can live for up to 7 days inside you, now correct me if i'm wrong but having a period doesn't change that and it is still a possibility. I would strongly suggest that if you don't want a surprise, in about two weeks get a pregnancy test or if you just want to be safe get some EC from a planned parenthood. I know thats a little extreme but i always think better safe than sorry you know? Good luck.

I should probaly point out that having sex the day before you period is (and correct me if i'm wrong on this)the most dangerous time to have sex, especially unprotected sex.

You know what ? Each time you have unprotected sex is a dangerous time. Because each time you have unprotected sex there's a risk for you to get pregnant.

As for a woman's MOST fertile time (not her only fertile time, especially in young women) it is about five days before and after ovulation. And ovulation occurs at different times in women but the great majority of women ovulate exactly 14 days before the onset of menses. But unless she's charting her basal body temperature and monitoring her cervical mucus, a women don't have the info to tell with real precision when she ovulates.

So, it is not accurate to say the day before her period is the most dangerous time to have sex.

The only way you can know if you're pregnant is by taking a pregnancy test. A test will be accurate as soon as 10-14 days after a pregnancy risk, so if you last had unprotected sex on the 22nd, a test should be accurate now.
