Here are some...: Abnormal sperms denote those sperms with odd shape or poor motility, which tend to less possibly penetrate the timely waiting egg. Nonetheless, if luckily and successfully penetrating to get into the egg takes place, fertilization (union) occurs to form zygote which in turn undergo cell division to form embryo, which will embed onto uterine mucosa (endometrium) where it eventually develops fetus ...Read more
Don't die together: Sperm that's put in the vagina don't all die together at one time. Most die in 2-4 days. They are living cells, swimming around, and so every man/woman/couple are different. A woman has varying hormone levels, and thus different mucus & environment, in her body on each day of her cycle, so sperm may live longer/shorter on different days. Dead sperm break up. Some become part of vaginal discharge. ...Read more
Around Day 14 +/-: Most women ovulate around day 14 of their monthly cycle. The cycle starts on the first day of her period. This is day 1. Sperm can hang around waiting for the egg (ovulation) for up to 3 days after intercourse. There is some variation in all of this from couple to couple. Best wishes! ...Read more

My boyfriend says his semen isn't 'mature' enough to fertilize an egg. How can that be possible? Can it be fixed?
Here are some...: Fertilization takes place only the egg & one lucky sperm meet at right time & place, and under right environment; specifically speaking, ovulated egg sucks into Fallopian tube in waiting mode, and sperms-rich semen ejaculate in the depth of vagina, from where the sperms released from liquefied semen start to move and swim "upstream" into cervix, through uterine cavity, and into F-tube to fertilize ...Read more
No signs: A woman does not have ay signs of exactly when her egg is fertilized by a sperm, until she is pregnant. Ovulation (when the egg releases) normally happens 2 wks from the start of her last period, and the sperm must fertilize the egg within a few hours of that time. Sperm can survive for several days, so sperm present before ovulation may well lead to a pregnancy. ...Read more
Here are some ...: Known to us, once inseminated in the vagina, the sperms may survive for 3-7 days during which sperms competitively swim through cervix, uterine cavity, Fallopian's tube to fertilize the awaiting egg. But, how long does the lucky sperm take to swim to the egg is an open question since no study has been specifically done to answer your question. So, I guess fertilization take place in 1-7 days. ...Read more
Its ok: I would focus on the encouraging sign that you had 16 fertilized eggs. Hopefully they will continue to develop ...Read more
