Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience.

Usually ovulation occurs 14 days before the next cycle.So if you have periods after 22-25 days chances are you should be ovulating from day 8th to day 11th.

Fertile period can be from 5 days before ovualtion.So from what you describe chances of pregnancy are indeed present.

Per cycle chances of pregnancy are about 20%.

i realized i had deleted a second part of the first question which was "i had unprotected sex 3 days after my period then 3 days after that I was getting my normal discharge from ovulating"

You can get pregnant from having sex 5 days before ovulation.
