If you are fertile seven days before ovulation and you are intimate four days before ovulation can you get pregnant ?

Yes: It's all a matter of semantics. Unless you're using contraception, you're considered fertile as long as you ovulate regularly. However, you won't get pregnant unless you have sex a few days before thru a few days after ovulation (sperm can live for several days inside you). So yes, you can get pregnant by engaging in unprotected sex 4 days prior to ovulation. ...Read more

However, if you are having unprotected sex there is always a chance of pregnancy so start a prenatal vitamin and check a pregnancy test if you miss a period. Alternately using a form of birth control would be best to avoid pregnancy. ...Read more
