In brief: Misinformed?

Near zero chance of pregnancy.
To cause pregnancy sperm have to be ready to meet the egg when it is released from your ovary. That means sperm must be deposited inside the vagina on any or all of the five days BEFORE ovulation.

The egg can live for 2 days after ovulation, sperm can live for 2-3 days , so having sex right before ovulation and/or right after, will increase your chances of pregnancy. Take daily Prenatal vitamins now while trying to conceive.
