In brief: Yes

Pregnancy is known to have occurred from any and all days of the cycle.
If you miss your period by 4-5 days, do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time.

In brief: Pregnancy ?

Ovulation is the release of an egg which can be fertilized for about 72 hours after release.
Ovulation occurs 14 days prior to the onset of a period, so intercourse (assuming all factors are positive for pregnancy to occur) up to three days after ovulation could result in pregnancy.
