How long dose it take for sperm to reach the egg?

Sperm motility: Sperm lose viability after 1 hour in the vagina but can survive up to 3-4 days beyond the cervix. Sperm can reach at the end of the tubes 10-15 min after ejaculation.

How much time dose it take for sperm to reach the egg and how soon should a guy pull out if he dosent use a condom?

Don't do pull-out: If you have any regard for yourself, your future, the woman you are with, or the danger of bringing an unwanted child into the world, you simply cannot use the "pull out" method. Pregnancy rates are up to 30% for couples that try this. You'll release sperms even before your big ejaculation, and there's always the possibility that in the excitement you won't withdraw. ...Read more

How long it wll take the sperm to reach and fertalize the egg?

How long it wll take the sperm to reach and fertalize the egg?

About 30min to a day: There isn't a official exact time from ejaculation to fertilization, but it's probably a half hour to a day or so. The egg has to be already out there hanging around, waiting for the sperm, in order for the sperm to get there and fertilize it quickly (half hour to half day or so). Otherwise, it can take days to reach an egg, if the egg hasn't even come out of the ovary yet. ...Read more
