Back to school: The days before you ovulate are the days you become pregnant. Sperm live for five days inside of the female. So, sperm left in the vagina on the five days leading up to ovulation are the sperm most likely to cause pregnancy.

Sure, of course!: Having sex around the time of ovulation is the best known way to make a baby. Since today is the 23rd, the sperm will swim to be in position, eagerly waiting for the egg's arrival. A primary care doctor or an ob-gyn doctor can help with family planning, if one is not wanting to raise a baby at this moment.

Ovulation: Unprotected sex will always have a likelihood of pregnancy. But sperms only live for 72 hours. Sadly, these sailors died before reaching the target.
