Is there a chance of woman getting pregnant,if she undergo an intercourse just after the week she had her menstraul cycle.Because i know that an ovum is formed on the 14th day after a menstraul cycle.So if sperms are deposited in her before 14th day will she conceive???

Firstly, not every woman releases an egg exactly 14 days after her period. It varies from woman to woman.

Secondly, yes, because sperm can survive for up to a week in the vagina - so if you have sex and she ovulates within that week, there is a chance that there will still be sperm hanging around to fertilise that egg.
