6-8 weeks: Factors that may affect your return to sexual activity include: vaginal delivery vs c-section, easy vaginal delivery vs difficult delivery with large episiotomy, breast feeding (can actually delay the recovery of the vagina due to low estrogen), how much help and support you have. I think 4-6 weeks is the minimal time to delay sexual relations. 3-4 month delay may indicated other problems.See 1 more doctor answer
A lot!: There are too many changes to list here that happen on every level in your body! Some women have absolutely no symptoms whatsoever. Some women become violently nauseated and vomit, have breast tenderness, sharp lower pelvic pain (associated with uterine growth) and may even notice their clothing fitting different.

Are due to hormones: Common early pregnancy symptoms include some nausea (with or without vomiting), some fatigue (feeling less energetic), a sharper or stronger sense of smell, mild soreness and swelling of the breasts, and maybe some food aversions or cravings. These symptoms are due to quickly rising hormone levels.
Good physical status: Obesity is a major risk factor for pregnancy, so starting out in good physical condition is important. Eat right, avoiding fat and salt and fast foods), eat fresh fruit and vegetables every day, get plenty of exercise (walking 20 minutes a day), take a pre-natal vitamin daily for several months before conceiving, and get plenty of rest.
Stamina!: Depending on the weight gain and general health of the mother, this can be the case for many certain women.

Yes: There are a number of permanent changes after pregnancy. For example, breast tissue doesn't fully mature until you are pregnant the first time. But after the first pregnancy, it is always able to produce milk. Another example is the cervical opening. Prior to first pregnancy it is round. After pregnancy it is elongated. Its possible to tell if you given birth. There are many such changes.
Well balanced diet: Just as in everyday life, one shoud eat fruits, veggies, lean protein like chicken/turkey breast or fish (not sushi) and multigrain bread and perhaps brown rice and black beans. To make sure that you have the Folic Acid and dha on board you can also take an over- the-counter prenatal vitamin with dha in it. Avoid tobacco, alcohol, and drugs. Regular exercise 45 min daily is also recommended.

Sperms in vagina: You can not get pregnant without male sperms entering the vagina. If there is no penetration or contact with the spermatic fluid with the vaginal opening you can not get pregnant. But contact with the penis with vagina or rubbing at the vaginal opening, there is an outside chance of getting pregnant as some preejaculation fluid may contain sperms.See 2 more doctor answers
Is it true that over 50% of fertilized ova pass out of a woman's body without resulting in pregnancy?
More like 30%: Firm data would be hard to obtain. Estimates based on ovulation & other studies project about a third of conceptions do not implant & establish a pregnancy. This can be due to late fertilization & transit through the womb before the conceptus is ready to implant. Also, a portion have chromosome or other abnormalities that did not have the proper information to establish a healthy pregnancy.
