In brief: Yes and no

Conception can only occur if the women ovulates and is more likely to occur if intercourse occurs closer to the time of ovulation.
However, a women that has sex one time six days before ovulation has about a 3 out of 1000 chance of conceiving. Her chances are about 1 out of 10 if she has sex near the time she ovulates. By about 24 hours after ovulation it is too late to have sex and conceive.
