Um, IF you ovulated on day 14, then no. Once you release an egg, it will only survive 12-24 hours before it dies. So, you really need to already have swimmers there waiting for the egg already. Generally, you can get pregnant from sex 3-5 days BEFORE ovulating, but not really after. Even BDing one day after ovulating is really only helpful in the event that you weren’t entirely sure. 

However, since you’re not sure, it’s also possible the you do not ovulate on day 14 – as a lot of women don’t. If you ovulate later, then yes, it could be a possibility. The only real way to know when you ovulate would be to chart your temps to see retroactively if you ovulated, although OPKs are helpful too but don’t always mean that you *will* ovulate, just that you body is getting ready to. 

Hope that helps.

@Mrs.LemonDrop:  exactly this.

It is always a possibility because seeing how you don’t really know when you ovulate since you don’t keep track there is always the chance you ovulate later in the month but if you did ovulate on CD 14 then no there is no way you could get pregnant. How long are you cycles usually? If you miss a period take a test. But good luck! I have a feeling if you end up not getting pregnant you will start trying sooner than your plan. Something about the *possibility* of getting pregnant can make people realize they want kids sooner.

@want2beeamom:   If you ovulate 2/28 then you fertile window would end 3/1. Maybe it is saying you are fertile 2/28-3/4 which could make sense if you ovulate 3/3 or 3/4. You have about a 5 day fertile window but it ends after you ovulate. So you are only fertile the days leading up to ovulations, day of ovulation and 12-24 days after ovulation.
