Yes: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed.

It takes time: It sounds as if you have only tried for one month. The chances for pregnancy in a normal fertile couple is only 1/4 to 1/5 each month. Most couples will get pregnant in 3-6 months. Your timing sounds fine so just continue to try and get help after a year, 6 months if the cycles are irregular.

Yes: You need just one egg & one sperm to meet & get pregnant. Both can live a couple days after ovulation & sex, respectively. So you can also get pregnant by engaging in sex a few days prior to ovulation. If you don't want to get pregnant, use some form of birth control. If you don't want to catch a sexually transmitted disease/infection, make him wear a condom each & every time, no excuses!

How am I likely to become pregnant if I had unprotected sex on the day of my ovulation?

Increased chances: Having sex around the time of ovulation is the way to maximize your chances of getting pregnant. We can not really give you odds as fertility varies from person to person and varies with age.
