Process Of Fertilization And Implantation
Nope: Some people think that an orgasm of the female can cause the cervix to "dip" into a puddle of semen which could enhance delivery of the sperm to the fallopian tubes.

Is conception the days of sex, or when sperm and egg meet or when the egg actually implants itself..how long after sex is true "conception"?
Not a medical word: Conception is not really a medical word. We could think about it as a multi-step process. Fertizilation is when the sperm and egg meet, a few hours after sex, and the sperm is able to penetrate the outer layer of the egg. Implantation of the fertilized egg, now called a zygote, and soon to be a blastula, happens several days later when it arrives in the uterus. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

A little HCG is produced before implantation, but by the time we can *detect* HCG with a blood or urine pregnancy test implantation has already occurred. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
