I wish it was that simple, then all babies could have been planned to the exact second, but alas, no the female body is much more complicated than that.
The simple answer to your question is that the egg bursts from the ovary (ovulation) approximately two weeks before the beginning of your next menstrual period. A common misunderstanding is that the egg bursts from the ovary at midcycle, halfway between menstrual periods. This is only true when the cycle is twenty-eight days long (something that cannot be known for certain until that particular cycle is over and menstruation begins).
A woman can become pregnant from unprotected intercourse up to five days before ovulation. Sperm can survive in a woman's body for three to five days, waiting to fertilize that egg during ovulation. Therefore, guessing how long your period usually is and counting backward fourteen days is not an effective method of birth control.
Sounds also like a trust issue here, or are you just panicking. Why not have a pregnancv test done and that way you will know whether she is pregnant or not.
