Possible: It is possible for a variety of reasons, but not very likely. Usually the egg is fertilized within 2 days of being released, but the timing of the release could be different from what you think. Occasionally the other ovary will also release an egg after the first egg is released. Take a home pregnancy test at the time of your missed period to find out if you are pregnant.
