Absolutely: Sperm can survive for about 3 days in the female reproductive system, so timing is perfect for fertilization. Estimates from single event during fertile period, but most I've read range 20-33% likelihood of conception. When period due, check home pregnancy test.

Very possible: No ejaculation does not mean no semen or sperm were transmitted in the pre-ejaculatory fluids. So, pregnancy is possible without contraception.

Could be high: That's the perfect timing for conception so the chance is good, but that does not guarantee that it will happen either. Best wishes..
