Yes. The days immediately succeeding ovulation represent a womans most fertile period in the menstrual cycle.

Remember that ovulation generally occurs around day 14 of her menstrual cycle, That means about 14 days since the onset of her last period.

These calculations represent statistical approximations of a highly variable biological phenomenon and in NO way offer any measure of protection against getting pregnant.
