In brief: Yes

Regular ovulation occurs 14 days before a 28-day period, so one would not get pregnant 7 days before the period.
If, for whatever reason, the ovulation is delayed by 7 or more days, then pregnancy is possible. When you miss your period, do a pregnancy test. If it's negative, repeat 1 and 2 weeks later.
