Not necessarily: Sperm can survive up to 6 days, so even though you are not ovulating now, you are at risk if it happens sometime in the next week. It is unlikely that you can be certain that will not happen. Don't take chances unless it will be OK if you get pregnant. ...Read more

It doesn't take 12 hours to occur. If you don't want to worry about an unwanted pregnancy or hiv/std, be more careful and don't have unprotected sex. ...Read more

If you have unprotected sex 3 days before you ovulate and the day you ovulate will the sperm from the 3 days before fertilize the egg first?

If you have unprotected sex 3 days before you ovulate and the day you ovulate will the sperm from the 3 days before fertilize the egg first?

See answer: In general, sperm can survive in the vagina for 1-2 days but up to 5 days in the right environment such as the cervix and uterus.

Sorry,a follow up question to the previous. Will the morning after pill prevent fertilization/implantation in the egg knowing that they are ovulating?

Sorry,a follow up question to the previous. Will the morning after pill prevent fertilization/implantation in the egg knowing that they are ovulating?

No: The morning-after pill works by delaying ovulation. Sperm hang around for several days but no pregnancy will occur if ovulation is delayed until the sperm are all gone. If an egg is already there, the morning after pill doesn't prevent fertilization or implantation. The good news is that the egg is viable for a short time, not days and days. Best wishes! ...Read more
