This is an ovulation question. How long does the female egg live before being fertilized by spermatozoa? What's the window
24 hours or less: An oocyte can be fertilized for a maximum of 24 hours after ovulation, many believe only 10-12 hours. Technically that's not quite the same as saying 24 hours after detection of an lh surge. It's much shorter than most realize, the idea of "4-5 fertile days" is not biologically correct at all, it's a simplification for timing strategy at home. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What day in a womans 28 day cycle does she ovulates? Is it possible to ovulate early? How long does sperm survive? How long an egg is available?
About a day: Women don't know exactly when they ovulate, so it's always an estimate. After ovulation, her egg will be fertile for about a day.

Within 24 hours: Aftrr ovulation, the released egg actually only has 24 hours to be fertilized. If not fertilized by then, then it becomes "unresponsive" and undergoes atrophy (collapse). Semen can live in the cervical mucous up to 5 days, so pregnancy is most likely when sex occurs within 5 days before, and the day of ovulation. The use of ovulation tests may help you plan conception. ...Read more
Is conception the days of sex, or when sperm and egg meet or when the egg actually implants itself..how long after sex is true "conception"?
Not a medical word: Conception is not really a medical word. We could think about it as a multi-step process. Fertizilation is when the sperm and egg meet, a few hours after sex, and the sperm is able to penetrate the outer layer of the egg. Implantation of the fertilized egg, now called a zygote, and soon to be a blastula, happens several days later when it arrives in the uterus. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
