First, I'm really sorry you are going thorugh this. From what I understand, the likelihood is not high - but lets try and back that up. I found this article that talks about when you are fertile - when you are ovulating. It's really right in the middle of your cycle. This would tell you that it would be pretty difficult.

Then I found this answer to "what is ovulation?" that also backs up the fact that it would seem to be unlikely.

I hope this helps!
