Unsafe sex after periods

I have read that an egg doesn't develop till 1 week after periods. I and my girlfriend had unprotected sex 2 days after her periods. Can it lead to pregnancy? PS: my girlfriend has irregular periods.

Hello there, You are absolutely right when you say that timing unprotected sex to occur just after your period is least likely to result in conception. You have shed the lining of the womb and you are not due to ovulate for at least 9-10 days after the first day of your last period, so theoretically you have a window of opportunity to exploit.
