Will orgasm at the time of possible implantation of a fertilized egg affect the process?

Will orgasm at the time of possible implantation of a fertilized egg affect the process?

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. But in your scenario, sperm have already been delivered and one of them has penetrated the egg. Orgasm is unlikely to make any difference. On the the other hand, i don't think it will hurt! ...Read more

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 more

Is hCG produced at time of fertilization (when sperm meets egg) or only when implantation occurs?

Is hCG produced at time of fertilization (when sperm meets egg) or only when implantation occurs?

Before implantation: Hcg is secreted by the embryo after fertilization but before implantation. The embryo reaches the blastocyst stage before it implants, with an inner cells that becomes the fetus, and trophoblast cells that make HCG and become part of the placenta. 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 more
