Ovulation happens about 14

Ovulation happens about 14 days after the first day of your period. The egg lives only for 1-2 days, but the sperm can stay alive inside your reproductive tract for several days, waiting for the egg to be released and you to become fertile. Therefore, if you have a regular 28 day cycle, you would ovulate on July 20. By Aug 5, your odds of pregnancy are 0%. However, the fact that it has been over 28 days and you still don't have your period shows that you don't have regular cycles OR you are already pregnant from having sex earlier in the month.

Best of luck,
