No.: The requirement to become pregnant is to have an egg present for the sperm to fertilize. As you know, humans do not lay eggs, but we produce them through the process of ovulation. Without ovulation, there is no egg and if there is no egg present to fertilize, one cannot become pregnant.

This is not the best: Time to try. Aim for ovulation and include a few days before and after for best results.
