Fertilization outside tube yields ectopic pregnancy. ...Read more

Not sure.: There may be some association between untreated BV and damage to the tube, but it is unclear. And we don't know how long a gal has to have it to be at risk. It is good that you got treated! It is the most common infection of vagina in women and fertility is fairly uncommon. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bacterial_vaginosis Relax! Eat right, exercise often, happy conceiving! ...Read more

Here are some ...: It has been known that sperms usually live 3-5 days after ejaculation. How soon do they reach Fallopian tubes?
