If i have sex on the 7th will that sperm fertilize the egg before sperm during sex on the 11th?

If  i have sex on the 7th will that sperm fertilize the egg before sperm during sex on the 11th?

Hmmm....: Have never known sperm to be selflessly polite, and swim in place (they can't stand in line), waiting for sperm from an earlier day to go first. However, many sperm from an earlier day would likely have tired out by the time the newer sperm arrived on the scene. But still, nobody knows. If one man, it doesn't matter. If two men, the rule is to separate men by at least TWO weeks. It's a good rule. ...Read more

When the spermatogonial stem cell get mutated by chemicals, if the mutated sperm fertilize the egg, will the child have de novo genetic defect?

No: So lots of things cause mutations in sperm and most sperm are not good. That is why it takes millions to get one good sperm. When mutations occur they usually render the sperm less useful and normally that sperm is not going to fertilize and egg ...Read more

What happens when abnormal sperm fertilize an egg?

What happens when abnormal sperm fertilize an egg?

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

What is the process of fertilization of the egg by the sperm?

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

When does d egg fertilize wen male sperm with it and what is the sign?

When does d egg fertilize wen male sperm with it and what is the sign?

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

How much time dose it take the sperm to get to the egg and fertilize it?

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

Will an abnormal sperm be able to fertilize and egg and will the baby be deformed?

Will an abnormal sperm be able to fertilize and egg and will the baby be deformed?

No: We believe that only normal sperm are able to penetrate an ovum & result in fertilization. Thus, deformed sperm are not a cause of deformed babies. Normal sperm may contain chromosomal abnormalities which can result in abnormalities in the baby. ...Read more

If sperm do not fertilize an egg, how soon do they die, and what happens when they die?

If sperm do not fertilize an egg, how soon do they die, and what happens when they die?

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
