It's all the same: In real life, in one woman, nobody knows exactly when all the sperm are dead, when the egg actually pops out of an ovary, when an egg is fertilized, nor when a fertilized egg implants into the uterus... All dates are estimates, so 4 days = 5 days = 6 days = 7 days. They are all the same day in real life. As long as the husband is the only source of sperm, none of this matters. ...Read more

Can sperm somehow get stuck into pipes if you masturbated into a bathtub faucet? What is its lifespan in there?

Can sperm somehow get stuck into pipes if you masturbated into a bathtub faucet? What is its lifespan in there?

No.: The shutoff valve for a bathtub faucet is several inches away from the outlet itself and the semen will not reach the water supply beyond the tub spout. Sperm has a lifespan outside the male body in ideal conditions for about 24 hrs. It would be vanishingly unlikely that your sperm could remain viable to cause a pregnancy should a fertile woman take a bath or engage in running water masturbation. ...Read more

Why is it dat sperm do flow out of a lady after sex. Immediately after sex?

Gravity + her fluid: The female produces vaginal secretions with sexual stimulation, and position encourages or discourages drainage by gravity.
