Does increasing the amount of sperm in the vagina (in the same day) ultimately increase the chances of conceiving during your fertile window?

Does increasing the amount of sperm in the vagina (in the same day) ultimately increase the chances of conceiving during your fertile window?

Theory vs. Reality: Theoretically yes. But, most men who ejaculate are ejaculating millions of sperm each time. Millions of sperm are designed to swim to the readied egg. It only takes one sperm to cause pregnancy and there are millions trying with each ejaculation. ...Read more

Everday having intercourse during fertile window days reduces sperm? Iv read in internet new sperms cannot swim in vagina and thus reduces chances of concueving & regeneration of healthy sperm takes 2-3 months which are capable of fertilizing.

Everday having intercourse during fertile window days reduces sperm? Iv read in internet new sperms cannot swim in vagina and thus reduces chances of concueving & regeneration of healthy sperm takes 2-3 months which are capable of fertilizing.

Swimming sperm: Mature sperm are swimming "champs" traversing through the vagina when released. Immature sperm often are missing their tails and, of course, it is impossible to move without a tail. Sperm production is best when intercourse ejaculation intervals are 48 hours or more apart, which is why it is recommended for fertility windows. Take the "plunge" and go every other day to the "sperm pool". ...Read more

Me an my husband are trying for a baby if I ahower 10 mins after sex on my fertile days does rhat wash the sperm out an ruin our chances?

Probably not: But it may be preferable to remain laying down for 1-2 hours after sexual intercourse in order to give the sperm a better chance of swimming into the cervix, and eventually reaching the end of fallopian tube where it can fertilize the egg. The sperm have a long journey to make and swimming against gravity can only make it more difficult. ...Read more

1st&3rd fertile days had unprotected sex pulled out. I put the sperm back into my vagina manually right away. It was alot both times. Please help..

Here are some. ..: It's known ovulation or fertile time occurs about 2 wks before the period regardless of personal duration of menstrual cycles.

How long does it take for sperm to get to the fallopian tubes after intercourse during my fertile days am trying for a baby?

Here are some. ..: It has been known that sperms usually live 3-5 days after ejaculation. How soon do they reach Fallopian tubes? Clinically, no definite study could be designed for addressing the issue with low clinical pertinence in real life. So, one may assume the sperms may reach there in 1-3 days. To verify pregnancy, do HPT soon after missing the expected period; if (-) & in doubt, repeat it in 1 wk.. .. ...Read more

Been trying conceive & u had sex 2 days ago on my fertile days but I'm not ovulate yet. How long sperm alive inside of My uterus? Can I still get preg

Been trying conceive & u had sex 2 days ago on my fertile days but I'm not ovulate yet. How long sperm alive inside of My uterus? Can I still get preg

Sperm can stay alive: From 3-5 days inside the vaginal vault/ uterus. The best method of conception is via ovulation charting, which uses the body's basal temperature rise that correlate with ovulation to predict when you will ovulate each month. This method sidesteps the irregularity built into many women's menstrual cycle. Then maximize the sperm contact with ovulation 3 days before and 3 days after. Best of luck ...Read more

I experienced some pinkish spotting after sex during fertile window what can it be?

I experienced some pinkish spotting after sex during fertile window what can it be?

Cervical spotting: You may have spotting due to the surge of estrogen at the time of ovulation which makes the endometrium more susceptible to spotting at this time. Have your physician carefully examine the cervix at your next exam to make sure you don't have a cervical polyp or other cervical problem. I assume your last pap smear was negative. If not, it needs to be evaluated. ...Read more

Plan B: Plan B does not protect against pregnancy resulting from intercourse after it is taken. It does disrupt the normal menstrual cycle but this does not change the fact that you can get pregnant. It sounds like you need a more reliable method of contraception if this is a concern. Be safe. Hope this helps. ...Read more

TTC and noticed a blob of green (snot-like color) CM. I think have ovulated or am at the end of fertile window. Happening last 2 weeks, what is it?

Gyn check: Generally, CM is gray-white or clear. Green is often a sign of an infection, especially in the vaginal vault. Ovulation rarely changes the color of CM, but will dramatically alter the consistency of it. Have your GYN or family doc do a culture of the vaginal vault to assess for infection ...Read more

About 10 days after my fertile window started I began a brown discharge that lasted for 5 days. It stopped for a few days and has now begun again.?

About 10 days after my fertile window started I began a brown discharge that lasted for 5 days. It stopped for a few days and has now begun again.?

Not sure: I assume that the brown discharge is less than a full period...If so then if this persists from cycle to cycle evaluation would be appropriate. Most common reasons would be anatomic (fibroid or polyp) or hormonal (hypothyroid or luteal phase defect [controversial]). Usually evaluation would involve ultrasound, possible water sonogram and some hormone blood tests.
Good luck. ...Read more

If I had sex days four days during my fertile window is it a chance I conceived?

If I had sex days four days during my fertile window is it a chance I conceived?

Yes, a chance: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 2-3 weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more
