If I had sex on May 22 & May 27 and I ovulate May 29th can I be pregnant?

Am I missing?: I do not understand asking a question where the answer is so very obvious. Sperm left in the vagina on any or all of the five days leading up to ovulation can cause pregnancy. But you don't need a doctor to state the obvious. Teenagers know that. What are you really asking?

I think that this is a symptom of our "fast food-Want Fries with that? attitude in this country. Some people need so slow down and enjoy the small things in life and learn to be patient.

Difficult to say: That is a narrow range of dates and fertilization could have occurred at any time during those days.
