If you had sex without birth control, then of course it isn't safe. You could ovulate at any time, you would not necessarily know. If you are asking if it is possible you are pregnant, yes it is. But it is also possible your periods have been delayed by exclusive breastfeeding. The only way to know for sure is to do a test or see your doctor.
