Don't Take Any Bets: A lot more than if you had unprotected sex 2 days before your period....the time just before and just after ovulation are the prime times (highest probability) but you can get pregnant any time. It's just the way the world works (for or against you). The best way to know is to get a urine pregnancy test if you miss a period.

Of course: Anyone having sex without condoms or birth-control can get pregnant. Having sex around the time of ovulation is the way to maximize your probability. Was getting pregnant your goal? If so good luck. If not consider using plan b.

Hard to guess: For a population of normal healthy women, the chances of getting pregnant when trying to get pregnant is about 20-25% for the month. However, it is not possible to guess an individual woman's chance of getting pregnant (nature just doesn't work that way). Some of it is timing; some of it is luck.

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..
