No guessing: Why are you asking this question? You just got a thorough and gracious explanation of how babies are made. Physicians NEVER guess when it comes to pregnancy. Ever. You had unprotected sex during the days leading up to ovulation. Even a teenager can tell you this is how you get pregnant. But no doctor will ever speculate until you miss a period and have a test.

Possible: Anytime you have unprotected sex, there is a possibility of pregnancy. People are not as predictable as we might like and both sperm and egg have been known to be viable longer than expected. Always use condoms for std protection and another effective birth control method when you have sex, if being a parent is not something you want at this time!

You can't always know when you are ovulating. That's why you should ALWAYS use birth control if you don't want to get pregnant.

Fertility: One becomes pregnant from sperm left in the vagina during the five days before ovulation. Not after ovulation.
