Yes: The chance of pregnancy in a healthy fertile couple is 25% during each encounter in while in the fertile window. Sperm can survive up to 72 hours in the the female genital tract and eggs usually survive about 24 hours. You can monitor your ovulation with oTC kits or the old temperature method.
