Nothing about pregnancy and sex is as safe as 100%, there's always "a chance/probability". You could never be too sure unless you've been pronounced barren/impotent.

So the answer to your question is . . YES, its possible she could be pregnant. What i'd advise your friend and his girl to do is go go for a blood test at the doctor's, short and simple.

PLEASE EDUCATE  YOURSELF reading the following article below:

Sperm Reaching the Egg

Here's how it works: Fertilization happens in one of the fallopian tubes, which carries an egg from an ovary to the uterus. It can take up to seven days after intercourse for sperm and egg to join and become a fertilized egg. Usually, it's because the sperm gets into the fallopian tube before the egg is released.

Here is more input and advice:

[list]
[li]I would say at least a couple of hours, but it could take up to three days. Depending you your body and where the egg is in the cycle. [/li]


[li]2 TO 3 DAYS [/li]


[li]The sperm that will be able to fertilize the eggie will leave the cervix, at the most, 30 minutes. It does not take 3 days for the sperm to get to the fallopian tubes to ovulation. It can take minutes for at least some of the sperm to reach the fallopian tubes where they are stored waiting for the eggie to pop out if it hasn't already popped out. [/li]


[li]As a general rule, less than three days. [/li]


[li]It takes about two hours to make the entire journey to the egg; however, some sperm are Olympic swimmers and can reach the egg in a half an hour. I looked this up and this is the article that I found if you are interested in reading it. http://www.mjbovo.com/Contracept/NO_Contracep.htm#long [/li]


[li]Well from what the Doctor told me when I got pregnant, it can take anywhere from the moment it happened to 8 days after the moment. Sorry if that doesn't help any just what I was told. [/li]


[li]I don't know the answer, but I will tell you what I do know. Sperm travels about 1/8 inch per minute. Sounds pretty slow until you realize Sperm is about 1/600 inch long. If you scale that up to "human" size that's about 4-5 miles / hour -- slow jogging speed. The penetration of the penis and location of the egg in the fallopian tubes is only two factors that will affect time. Not all sperm swim in the correct direction. Some "hang back" (don't know the right word) and may not move into the fallopian tubes for a 2 or 3 days. This is why you can have intercourse before ovulation and still get pregnant by sperm from a few days ago. [/li]


[li]Sperm can last 3 to 5 days inside a woman. Every woman ovulates differently. People will tell you the average woman ovulate 14 days from the day you start your period [/li]
[/list]

every woman by derek llewellyn- jones is a must read on this topic, especially the calender method, tho it aint fool-proof.
then there's the issue of STD which should come first, protection comes first,
then, we wouldnt have to worry about safe periods anymore

   While the risks of getting pregnant are higher at certain stages of a woman circle, some women may also be prone to pregnancy at one stage or the other relatively. So, it is very possible for any woman to get pregnant at any time, any day, any period or any season (even during her period): just that the risks may be higher or lower at certain stages.
  There are many factors responsible for this, but i'm just too lazy to go into details right now. Pardon me  cool
