Can sperm from two different men fertilize the same egg?

in dogs, yah. In people, no. No. 2 sperm from one man cannot

fertilise one egg, this would give the embryo too many chromosomes

and it would not be viable. Sperm from 2 different men can

fertilise two eggs released at the same time and you get fraternal

twins from two different fathers. I would be more worried about

sexually transmitted diseases than pregnancy if I were you.
