Is it possible to get pregnant after 1-3 days after intercourse?

Hello Jeffery Lim,

Welcome back.

Each month inside the ovaries, a group of eggs starts to grow in small, fluid-filled sacs called follicles. Eventually, one of the eggs erupts from the follicle. This is ovulation.

After the egg is released, it moves into the fallopian tube. It stays there for about 24 hours, waiting for a single sperm to fertilize it.

If one sperm does make its way into the fallopian tube and burrows into the egg, it fertilizes the egg.

The egg stays in the fallopian tube for about 3 to 4 days. But within 24 hours of being fertilized, it starts dividing fast into many cells. It keeps dividing as it moves slowly through the fallopian tube to the uterus. Its next job is to attach to the lining of uterus. This is called implantation.

Jeffery, the simple answer is yes as explained above.
