Yes: Sperm are viable in a female's reproductive system for up to 5 days, so sex up to that long before ovulation can still result in pregnancy. ...Read more

If I had unprotected sex 2-3 days before ovulation, can I get pregnant? What are the chances of getting pregnant?

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. ...Read more

Can a woman get pregnant if she has sex a week before ovulation?

Possibly: If she really desires to be pregnant then timing sex to begin starting a few days before ovulation is a good idea. If she doesn't want to be pregnant she should use protection at all times. Take care. ...Read more

Had sex 2 days before ovulation and a day after ovulation can I get pregnant?

Can I get Pregnant?: Yes. Of course. You do not need a physician, I am sure, to confirm that having sexual intercourse when you are most fertile can lead to pregnancy. Ovulation is the release of the readied egg for impregnation by the ovary. Sperm left in the vagina during the period leading up to ovulation are the most likely to cause pregnancy. ...Read more

Not impossible: The vaginal secretions are designed to help convey swimming sperm up to the cervix and toward your fallopian tubes. If there was sperm in his pre-ejaculatory fluid, or if he released sperm near your vulva or vagina, and you were wet, then it's not impossible for you to conceive, just unlikely. I make it a rule to never say "never". Plan b is for these situations. ...Read more
