Welcome to ehealthforum,
If she is during her fertile days/closer to ovulation time during your sexual contact, and if semen or pre-cum comes in contact with vagina, chances of pregnancy are possible. If fertile mucus had been present at time of intercourse, sperms can stay alive for 5-7 days and fertilize the egg upon ovulation. After ovulation, egg has only 24-48 hours to get fertilized. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact if you are not ready for pregnancy. Using more than 1 form of birth control measures gives you higher protection rate.
Take care.
