When Does The Fertilized Egg Attach To The Uterus
Do the birth-control pills prevent fertilization or they just prevent the fertilized egg to attach to the uterus?
Multi - ways: Birth control pills work in many ways depending on the type (ie Progesterone only or combination pills). The main function is to stop ovulation from occurring. If no egg is released then there is no egg to fertilize. If this fails and an egg is made and released - the secondary defense is thinning the lining to prevent embryos from implanting. They also effect cervical mucus. ...Read more
Approximately: It takes approximately 3 days for any egg-fertilized or not- to reach the uterus from the fallopian tubes. It takes about 6-12 hours on average, sometimes up to 24 hours for the egg to get from the ovary to the fallopian tubes. ...Read more
Six days: Six days plus or minus a day or so. ...Read more

When the egg leaves the ovarian, how long does it take to get to the uterus? And how long does it take to to fertilize once in the uterus?
6-to-7 days old: A fertilized egg/embryo always implants in the uterus when it is between 6-to-7 days old. ...Read more
Can you harvest my eggs for fertilization after menapause? Had hysterectomy (2001) but only had uterus removed. Still have fallopian tubes. Would like to have a baby. I am 58 years old. My daughter has volunteer to be surrogate.
I : I am sorry to cause dissappointment. By age 58 years old it is very unlikely that the eggs in your ovaries are viable. They age, just as we do. The eggs would likely not be healthy any longer. ...Read more
It doesn't survive: If an egg fails to attach to the uterine wall the female will slough it off with the period. ...Read more
Once the fertilized egg reaches the uterus and starts to attach itself, does it take a few days to fully burrow into the uterus?
No?: I wouldn't use the word "burrow." But the attachment is not complete for several more days. ...Read more
Once the fertilized egg reaches the uterus and starts to attach itself, how long does it take to completely attach? Will sex interfere with attachment
7-10 days: Implantation happens about 7-10 days after conception. Intercourse won't interfere with implantation. Best wishes! ...Read more
Can a fertilized egg move after its been attached to the uterus wall, then reattach to the uterus wall in a different spot?

Good question: Well, there are a variety of reasons a fertilized egg may not implant. In fact, i was taught in medical school that an estimated 50% of all fertilized eggs are "spontaneously aborted"- meaning your body naturally rejects them. It is thought that this is because of genetic malformations that the body is capable of recognizing early as incompatible or not advantageous to life. Scarring can also caus. ...Read more
Depends: Sperm can reach egg already in fallopian tube in 30 - 60 minutes. However sperm can survive a few days in the fallopian tube until an ovum (egg) enters the tube ; before they both meet. Thus sperm usually stays in uterus less than an hour because fallopian tubes are technically no longer part of the uterus. ...Read more
Yes: If you are premenopausal, your ovaries still function and produce an egg each month, regardless of whether the uterus is present or not. The eggs can be extracted and used to create an embryo which a surrogate can carry. There have been extremely rare cases of women conceiving without a uterus (this is very dangerous, often fatal). ...Read more
If follicles fill back up with fluid after egg retrieval is this something they would cancel a transfer for? Or only if there is fluid in uterus?
Doubt it: I can't think of any reason i would cancel when follicles re-accumulate, they usually do. ...Read more
Nope: You can have eggs removed from your ovaries to be fertilized and transplanted to the uterus. There is no way to get them from a Fallopian tube. If you have an ectopic pregnancy in your tube, there is no way to transplant that either. Naturally fertilized eggs transplant themselves from the Fallopian tubes to the uterus,under normal circumstances. ...Read more
Implantation : The implantation process continues until week 12-13 weeks. The most likely time to see implantation bleeding is about weeks 4-7, although you can see it later, up to 12-13 weeks. You should always get checked if you see any bleeding during pregnancy. It may be normal...Or not normal. ...Read more

Conception: Sperm enter vagina in semen & then pass thru cervix, pass thru uterus into fallopian tube containing ovum or egg after ovulation. 1 sperm pierces thru membrane covering ovum & nucleus of sperm fuses with nucleus of ovum. This fertilized ovum now divides from 1 cell to 2 then 4 & so on.Now an embryo, transfers to body of uterus. Stem cells, within embryo divide, now a fetus develop various tissues ...Read more
