Well the egg can be fertilized up to 48 hours. So having sex 5 days prior to ovulation may increase your chances, but that doesnt mean its not possible. The sperm can live inside up to 5 days. You have a 25% chance each cycle to get pregnant. If you want to be sure, take a test, wait for a late period or go to a clinic and get a pregnancy test. But it may be to early. Its only the 15th how do you know you will ovulate on the 17th?
