Is sex 5 days before ovulation day a good if I'm trying to get pregnant?

Pregnancy. The best time to become pregnant is one to two days before ovulation. The egg lasts about 1 day once released by the ovary and sperm can last up to six days in your body. There is about a six day window for sperm to meet an egg. You should have sex every couple of days around this period to be sure there are always sperm in the fallopian tubes to meet the egg when it is released.
