  • possibly. the egg is still there till the lining sheds and the sperm survives 24 hours to 3 days

  • Only if it was a day or two after. The egg isn't viable for very long.

  • Sperm can surive for up to 5 or 6 days, but the egg only survives 12-36 hours after ovulation. After that time frame, you can't get pregnant until your next cycle.
