If I have sex a week before my fertile days but also have sex a day before my ovulation date can I still get pregnant. I want to get pregnant?

In brief: Yes

An egg only has a short period of time to be fertilized, likely less than 24 hours.
However healthy sperm may be able to survive for a few days in the uterus and tubes. In this case, only the time of intercourse right before ovulation will have any impact on conceiving.
