Yes: Ovulation NORMALLY happens between day 11 and day 16 of your cycle, but can happen any time during the cycle if you are not absolutely regular for some reason (stress, antibiotics, diet change, medication change, hormonal disturbance, etc). Very rarely, you can even get pregnant DURING your period! So there is no absolute safe time. Take a pregnancy test!

Pregnancy tests by urine are advertised to yield results as soon as 1 day following your first day of missed period. If you are still unsure, check a week after. Check first thing in the morning.
