can i be pregnant

hello i had unprotected sex on 10/31 and then my period came the next day. It left on 11/5 and i sex again 11/7. Is possible to get pregnant right before or after your period? If so when should i take a pregnancy test. I have been urinating alot lately and my pressure has been up alot

Hi!
IF you were my patient, I would advise a pregnancy test right away.  It is more likely to get pregnant right after than right before your period, but anything is possible, especially if your periods are not super regular.  If your test was negative now, I would advise a repeat around the time your next period is due.  Two things to think about--one is Emergency contraception such as Plan B.  The other is some more consistent form of birth control--there are many options that won't affect blood pressure.
Good luck!
