In brief: No egg no pregnancy

It is impossible to get pregnant without ovulation ( without egg or ovum)your question is probably.
..How close to ovulation a sperm may fertilize the ovum? And the answer is...Before the ovulation is very variable depending upon the characteristic of the cervical mucus and its pattern and after the ovulation... 4 days are still fertile. Only pts trained in the characteristics of themucus may know.

In brief: A few days around

You can get pregnant when you ovulated or a few days before or after. Part of the confusion is in when a woman ovulates.
Usually that is around day 14 if her cycles are 28 days long. But if the cycle is irregular or just weird that month, ovulation can be early or late. Most women don't know when they ovulate exactly so predicting can be hard.
