Intercourse is the actuual physical act of making love when the sperm is inserted into the vagina. Conception is the moment when the sperm actually fertilises the ovum which may be up to five days later. But unless you are actually being monitored 24/7 there is no way of knowing exactly when conception occurred, hence the up to 5 day variation on US scan
