Am I going to get pregnant?

I had protected sex with my boyfriend 6 days to my period using a condom. I took pills after the sex so to prevent unwanted pregnancy. I'm expecting my period in a day and I'm experiencing the hormonal changes I go through anytime I'm about to menstruate. Could I still be pregnant after all these?

Hello Naashika

Thank you for writing.

You asked a similar question on your last cycle.
A condom is 98%+ effective in preventing pregnancy. You should not take emergency contraception after - you didn't have an emergency. The risk of pregnancy is close to zero. Read up on the side effects of your pills so you know what to expect.
