For a short time: After ovulation, the released egg is viable for approximately 24 hours. If you are trying to get pregnant, tracking ovulation basal temperature monitoring or an LH surge kit can help to roughly identify when this period will occur. If you are trying to avoid pregnancy, keep in mind that up to 25% of couples using the rhythm method (also called natural family planning) will get pregnant!

Yes: While you are pregnant, the hormonal cycles that cause you to ovulate and also to have menstrual cycles stop in response to the hormones produced by the placenta. After delivery, breast feeding can extend the amount of time before you begin ovulating again, but is not a reliable form of birth control!

Ovulation: No. One must ovulate in order to become pregnant, because the egg is absolutely essential to a pregnancy.

Is the only time possible to get pregnant is during ovalation period? Or can still possibly get pregnant before or after that state?

A few days around: You can get pregnant when you ovulated or a few days before or after. Part of the confusion is in when a woman ovulates. Usually that is around day 14 if her cycles are 28 days long. But if the cycle is irregular or just weird that month, ovulation can be early or late. Most women don't know when they ovulate exactly so predicting can be hard.

No: Ovulation with subsequent fertilization - pregnancy - prevents further ovulation during the course of your pregnancy. If you breastfeed after delivery, this usually suppresses ovulation as well.
