Pretty good: Having sex around the time of ovulation is the most efficient way to get pregnant. Since you are 18 I am wondering if you are trying to get pregnant or trying to prevent it? Use over the counter Plan B if intercourse was within 72 hours to decrease the risk of unplanned pregnancy. See a doctor to start birth control

Yes: Sperm can potentially survive up to 5 days or so following ejaculation, so it is possible.
