what are the chances of pregnancy with intercourse with withdrawl method 3-4 days before & 3-4 days after ovulation?

Coitus interruptus: Withdrawal is not a reliable form of birth control and since the egg can survive a full day and sperm up to 5 days, pregnancy is possible roughly up to 6 days before ovulation and 1 day after ovulation. 2 days after ovulation the egg isn't viable. These are not hard and fast rules however.
