You calculated them how? If you have not been observing and tracking your own cervical mucus and basal temperature daily, you're not going to be able to make an accurate guess of when you've ovulated.

Again, like we said in your other post, because you had intercourse, you can get pregnant: that will always be the case. Because your condom broke, that makes that risk far higher than if it hadn't. Where a woman is at in her fertilty cycle can give us extra information on how high or low a risk that might have been, too, but not unless she charts her fertility.

Things like online ovulation calendars based on nothing but when you got your last period are often inaccurate, because women's fertility cycles vary. And even when women have that information, for real, it can never tell us a time when we absolutely, positively can not possibly become pregnant, because there really isn't such a thing. There are times we are more likely to and less likely to, but never a 100% never or absolutely.
