Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that a woman is only fertile during the 24 hours after the egg is released.  Sperm can survive for up to a week, so having sex before ovulation is risky.  Having sex after ovulation is theoretically safe, but most women can't tell exactly when they ovulate, so be very careful.  Plan B or Next Choice emergency contraception is an excellent option.
Good luck!
