Can you get pregnant on your ovulation day?

In brief: Absolutely

Essentially you can only get pregnant during the day of ovulation! the egg is only capable of fertilization for about 12-18 hours after ovulation.
We observe this fact with every ivf cycle because egg retrieval is the equivalent of ovulation and the egg must be fertilized in the next 12-18 hours. I hope this helps. Best wishes.
