Absolutely: Sperm can survive for about 3 days in the female reproductive system, so timing is perfect for fertilization. Estimates from single event during fertile period, but most I've read range 20-33% likelihood of conception. When period due, check home pregnancy test.

Yes: Unlikely but possible. "female sperm" swim faster and die younger but 'male sperm" last longer. 5 days would be unlikely but possible.
