In the days before a period, most women are not very fertile. In fact, most will not be able to become pregnant at all. And if you got your period as scheduled, pregnancy occurring at this point from that risk is very unlikely.

Whether or not to get EC for this is going to be all about how you feel about that level of risk, and if you want to do something extra for prevention.

However, you will want to schedule an STI screening in the next month, as there also would have been a possible high risk of sexually transmitted infections.
