Possible: Pregnancy is known to have occured following sex on any day of the cycle. If you miss your period by 4-5 days, it would be time to do a home pregnancy test. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions carefully.

Very good chance: You can actually get pregnant during any time of your cycle, but the chance is highest during/around time of ovulation (which, unfortunate, is very difficult to tell exactly when). The chance becomes less and less as you get older. In your case, knowing when you are ovulating and having relation before/during this process will increase your chance, with fertile sperm of course. Good luck.

You could be.: It will take at least 9 days for a pregnancy test to turn positive. When timing intercourse appropriately as it appears you have, there is about a 15-20% chance of pregnancy occuring. If your test is not + a week after a missed period then you probably are not pregnant. If you are not trying to become pregnant, then you need reliable contraception.

Definitely: The most fertile days of the month are the day of ovulation and the day before ovulation. But the "fertile window, " during which it is possible to conceive, extends 4 days prior to ovulation (i.e. Days 10-14 for a woman who ovulates on day 14). Good luck!

Possible: Unprotected sex with a fertile male is overwhelmingly the most common cause of pregnancy. If you don't want to become pregnant, use some form of contraception. It's not rocket science.
