Unlikely: It's about a 20% chance that you would get pregnant on this day of your cycle. If you don't want to be pregnant consider using two forms of birth control. At 16 that would be a good idea. Condoms are always a great idea as they also help to prevent STDs

There is a high probability of getting pregnant on the first day of OVULATION. And withdrawl is a very undependable form of birth control.

High probability: to get pregnant around ovulation and withdrawal is not an effective form of birth control.

Definitely yes!: I didn't say you are pregnant, but this method is 100% possible to conceive. If you don't want to be pregnant, don't do it. However, if 46 years (?) is your actual age, its incredibly unlikely though.
