I don't think so: You can have safe sex from the first day of you menstrual cycle until the 10 day and from the 21 day until next cycle

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.

Yes: Ovulation usually occurs about 14 days after the start of your period. You are most fertile for the next few days but can get pregnant until your period starts again.

Usually not: Should too early as the sperm should only live for 72 hrs at the max, if indeed u did ovulate then and not before then.

Pregnancy: The best time to become pregnant is one to two days before ovulation. The egg lasts about 1 day once released by the ovary and sperm can last up to six days in your body. There is about a six day window for sperm to meet an egg. You should have sex every couple of days around this period to be sure there are always sperm in the fallopian tubes to meet the egg when it is released.

Fertile = ovulation: Your fertile days are the days you are ovulating. The timing of ovulation is how one defines the fertile days. Subtract 14 days from the expected date of your next period and that is the most likely day of ovulation
