Yes: If you are ovulating and your tubes are not blocked you can get pregnant. If you are having regular cyclic menses then you are likely ovulating. You may see your doctor who may check your progesterone level at the appropriate time in your cycle for ovulation. You may also take you body temperature every morning prior to getting out of bed, if dips just before ovulation then rises afterwards.

Yes: With a 28 day cycle ovulation is near day 14. Conception can occur several days before to several days after mid cycle. Twelve days is near your most fertile time.
