Very unlikely


Ovulation occurs in the middle of your cycle which would be from 10 to 16 days after your first day of your period, and since sperm can't survive more than 5 days pregnancy would be highly unlikely if your cycle is reasonably predictable and this was a normal period.

9-14 days


Approximately 9 to 14 days following first day of bleeding of your period. Most doctors seem to recommend sexual intercourse every other day during that time, but some say it's okay to have sex every day when trying to conceive.

Yes


Theoretically, a woman can be fertile during her menstrual flow or just after it stops. If it is a 21 day cycle and 7 days of menstrual flow, ovulation probably occurs just after the period and you can get pregnant a few days before ovulation.
