is it possible to get pregnant if you have unprotected sex a few days before you start ovulating?

Possible: Sex just before and just after ovulation is a recipe for pregnancy! if you are actively trying to get pregnant, you should have intercourse every other day from cycle day 10-20. If you don't wish to get pregnant, then please use condoms or an alternative form of contraception.
