How long does it take for sperm to fertilise the egg ? Do you always ovulate on day 14?

How long does it take for sperm to fertilise the egg ? Do you always ovulate on day 14?

Hours/No: The sperm fertilize an egg over the course of a few hours. The egg is only able to be fertilized for about 12-18 hours, so we usually recommend sex every 2 days during the fertile week to make sure sperm are in the tube when the egg ovulates. Ovulation can occur between day 6-21 and about 3% of ovulations occur during the days of the expected menses. This happens because cycles vary so much. Best. ...Read more

12 hours/72 hours: The egg will remain viable for up to 12 hours or more; sperm may remain viable for up to 72 hours depending upon the circumstances. If they unite during that period of time and then implant in the uterus, you're pregnant. ...Read more

Clear stretchy mucus: It sounds as if you have pre-ovulatory mucus. If you don't want to conceive use contraception, and you may wish to consider the morning after pill. If you want to conceive, sounds as if you are having sex prior to ovulation, which is great! ...Read more

After my ovulation date how do I supposed to lay in the bed each night in order to still concieve n make the sperm reach the egg faster...

A happy position...: After sex, a woman may lie in any happy position. That's the position that makes her relaxed, free of stress, gone from her worries, leaving her with a hint of a smile. Worrying about pregnancy, or thinking about whether it will happen or not, doesn't make the sperm swim any faster. ...Read more

How long do sperm live before ovulation? What's the min and the max?

Not certain: There has never been any definitive study on how long sperm live within the tubes. What we do know is that fertilization must occur within 12 hours of ovulation. I tell my patients that they need to "aim" for those hours if they wish to become pregnant. ...Read more

If sperm is generated 3 months ahead of time, then why is it recommended by most drs to make love every other day around ovulation, not every day?

Sperm Concentration: It is the concentration of sperm that may be important and too frequent ejaculation can lower this. Sperm can survive inside the female genital tract up to three days, so that around the time of ovulation you can increase the frequency to daily. Otherwise, it is best to allow accumulation about every other day, since it is not always possible to predict exactly when ovulation occurs and time sex. ...Read more
