unless you have an extremely short luteal phase (which in itself would make pregnancy extremely difficult) then no.

However, if (as you say) your bleeds don't always start on a regular schedule and you said you had unprotected sex then the possiblility  is there (which for a healthy couple)- 25% chance per cycle to get pregnant.


I am assuming that you don't know when you ovulate ?
