Thank you for your query
You have not mentioned which day of your cycle was it of your menstrual cycle that you had unprotected sexual intercourse. 2 days after my period means is it after you stopped bleeding, if yes, and if taken as 5-7 days of bleeding probably day 7 or day 9 of the menstrual you may have had unprotected sex in that scenario if your menstrual cycle periodicity is between 28-31 days, the probable chances of a conception are low. Sometimes ovulation can occur on any day of the menstrual cycle due to various reasons. However if you don’t get your menstrual cycle even after 7 to 10 days past your expected date of menstrual cycle opt for a home pregnancy test. It is always better to avoid an unwanted pregnancy by using contraceptive methods like barrier methods (condoms), birth control pills, or if inevitable use of emergency contraceptive pills or the morning after pills, than to opt for an abortion.
Hope that answers your query. Have a good day.
