Possibly: If you have regular 28 day periods, you are most likely ovulating on day 14 (with your first day of bleeding being counted as day 1). But, the time of ovulation can be affected by many factors and it is possible to conceive at almost any time of the cycle.

Possibly: Although unlikely, it is possible to get pregnant at anytime during your cycle.

Yes: Pregnancy has been documented from intercourse occurring on any day of a woman's cycle, including during menses. That would be more likely than on the midcycle days, but it happens.Unless you want to get pregnant, use some form of BC for any exposure.

It is not likely.: If you have regular cycles such ad between 28-32 days and you see your period always on time then it is unlikely to get pregnant one day before your period because you body is preparing to throw out all the elements needed for a pregnancy as a result of a fertilization not taking place. If your cycles are not regular that means you can ovulate anytime, so a pregnancy taking place is possible.
