i had sex with my bf last night (August 24), we didn't used any contraceptive, I don't know if I am fertile or not...my last monthly period is last Aug. 8-11, 2010..is there a possibility that I'm going to get pregnant?hope you'll answer my question.tnx

On average a woman's cycle is

On average a woman's cycle is 28 days with ovulation happening on day 14, and the fertile window 3 days before and 1 day after ovulation. So if your cycles were completely average, your ovulation date would be on Aug 22 (8+14), with fertility extended until Aug 23.

However, this is just an estimate and all womens cycles are different. You cannot make this determination just from the dates alone. That is why the rhythm method is not very effective. Unless you are practicing a modern method of natural family planning, you should assume that you are fertile every day.
