The fastest sperm can get to a fallopian tube is about 30 minutes, meaning that the quickest conception could occur following sex is in the half-hour range This means that, following sex, the egg could be fertilized before you've gotten up to get a drink of water.
Conception also can occur as many as five days after sex or possibly longer, as strong, healthy sperm can survive for about that many days (and perhaps even longer) in the supportive environment of the fallopian tubes as they wait for an egg to be released, if one isn't already present. Generally, if an egg is going to be fertilized and conception is going to occur, it will have to happen in a 24-hour period AFTER OVULATION.
You would have to know when you ovulate to get a more definite answer.
