Post ovulation

If I have intercourse 4 days after ovulation, can I get pregnant? Once a person ovulates, i assume the egg disintegrates after 48 hours. Therefore I assume I am unable to get pregnant after I ovulate? Is this correct?

The egg cell lasts for about two to three days after ovulation. Intercourse in this time can lead to pregnancy.
