Very small: The events that you described will most likely not result in a pregnancy. It is very unlikely that you could've conceived five days prior to ovulation.
Dr. Michael Opsahl
Fertility Medicine 43 years experience
Possible: The sperm can live for several days inside the woman. Ovulation is not easily determined or regular. Sperm sometimes escape the man before he completely ejaculates. So, it is possible for you to get pregnant under the conditions you mention though low likelihood. Use better contraception to be safe. Good luck.

No: It is impossible to get pregnant before ovulation because the egg must be released from the ovarian follicle before it is fertilized. However, this does preclude the possibility of getting pregnant by having sex before ovulation as sperm is capable of hanging around for a while!
