In brief: Possibly
It is possible to become pregnant at this time.
Most people ovulate a little later, but depending on the length of your cycle, you could become pregnant.

In brief: Possibly
From the time you start your period until you ovulate can range from about 7 days to 21 days.
When you have sex, the sperm can be effective for up to 6 days. So, if you ovulate within six days of having sex - there is a chance that you could conceive. When you have sex closer to the time of ovulation, your chances for conceiving increase.
