If your cycle is 'typical', ovulation occurs about 14 days before you get your period. This would make a few days before your period an infertile time in your cycle. It's the basis of the 'rhythm' form of birth control. I'd call it effective but not fool-proof.
Odds are if you had sex right before your period was due and then ended up pregnant that month, you got pregnant earlier that month.
