Yes!!!: Best way to get pregnant is to have unprotected sex for several days before, during ; after ovulation as sperm ; egg can live for several days inside your body. Thus timing can allow for overlap to improve chances of becoming pregnant. Odds are 1 in 5 to 1 in 4 of getting pregnant during each cycle.

Maybe: Anyone having intercourse without birth control or condoms may get pregnant. If intercourse was within 72 hours you consider taking plan b. Ella (ulipristal acetate) is another brand that can be used up to 5 days after unprotected intercourse. Plan b is a high dose of birth control to disrupt the hormonal patterns to delay or prevent ovulation. Abnormal bleeding after is common. Check preg test in 10 days.

Yes : If you have sex the day you ovulate you can get pregnant. Chance is about 15-20%. If you had only had sex 5 days prior to ovulation chance is much smaller.
