Possible: Because sperm can survive for 48-72 hours, and according to some reports up to 5 days, and since intercourse took place close to the time of ovulation, then yes it's possible to get pregnant. However, chances of pregnancy are not 100%. If cycle is missed, make sure to check a pregnancy test.
