Hello Anonymous,

I can appreciate that you are hoping that you are pregnant, since you have been actively trying to conceive.

The five days before and the actual day of ovulation are considered to be a woman's most fertile time during the menstrual cycle. Having unprotected sexual intercourse on these days increases the chance of conception.

Unfortunately, Anonymous, the last day of your period was not a fertile day.
If your next period is late by more than one week, you could test for pregnancy.
