Not immediately. It takes time for that fertilised egg to travel down the fallopian tube and implant in the uterus for you to become pregnant, and for pregnancy hormones to reach a point where it will effect cervical mucus. Changes in hormones will result in cervical mucus changing as it would normally after ovulation whether or not fertilisation occurs.
Yes. Your cervical mucus will change over the course of your cycle. This has everything to do with ovulation. Try tracking your cervical mucus and it will tell you when you are ovulating, and when your period is about to start. You will find that after your period finishes, you have little cervial mucus. You will feel "dry" when you touch your vagina and any mucus you have will be white or yellowish and feel either creamy or sticky. This mucus is actually very acid and is poison to sperm, it will kill them. As you approach ovulation your mucus will change, it will become clear and very slippery - very much like raw egg whites. And there will be a lot of it. Your vagina will feel wet or damp. This is the natural lubricant for sex and the cervical mucus actually helps sperm live longer and move through the vagina. Once you start to see this mucus, you know you are about to ovulate and are "fertile". This will usually last about 2-4 days. Once ovulation is over, the mucus will once again become sticky and no longer be clear. If you count 14 days from the middle of your "clear & slippery" cycle, you will find what day your period will come on. The mucus will remain sticky right up until your period starts.
Hello. It varies in every woman what the cervical mucus looks like. Its usually white and similar to ovulation discharge. Cervical discharge increases daily or every few days, once conception has taken place.
This is simply how the menstrual cycle/reproductive cycle works. A woman will only ovulate once per cycle due to the series of events during her cycle that have to occur to allow the egg cells in the ovary to mature. Cervical mucus serves to prevent harmful organisms such as sperm and bacteria getting into the uterus where it could cause infection or damage, by only having the cervical mucus allow sperm to pass through the cervix around ovulation it prevents any harm coming to the woman's reproductive organs.
No, if you have sex when pregnant the uterus is closed by the mucus plug and nothing can get in to the fetus. Once a embryo is made it can not be changed by another sperm and egg.
Sperm can survive for up to a week within the female body leading up to ovulation. Fertile cervical mucus protects sperm from the acidic pH of the vagina and help it to swim up through the cervix so it can get to the fallopian tubes. In the fallopian tubes sperm can hibernate to conserve energy so that once ovulation occurs they have the strength to swim to and fertilize the egg.
No egg is released once you are pregnant. The uterus is also closed by the mucus plug so no sperm can get into the fallopian tube.
If you are asking "how long does it take for the sperm to fertilize the egg once it penetrates the egg wall?", it is instantaneous. That's what "fertilized" means. If you are asking "how long does it take the sperm to fertilize the egg once it enters the female body?", there is no exact answer. it could take from a few minutes to a few days.
Yes, it's very normal. One of the ways hormonal birth control prevents pregnancy is to make the cervical mucus thicker so it's harder for sperm to get through. Once you stop hormonal birth control, you will begin to see a normal cycle of cervical mucus again, which will change throughout your menstrual cycle. If the discharge has no odor and no itching, there is no need for concern.
Once a sperm penetrates the egg, changes occur on the membrane, effectively making it impenetrable to others. It is possible, however, for 2 sperms to penetrate at the same time, which could mess things up.
If your period has started, you are not pregnant. There is much variation in the menstrual cycle, especially with younger women (say under 20), whose bodies are just getting "in the groove" of ovulating and menstruating. The variation is always in the length of time between bleeding and ovulation. From ovulation to bleeding is pretty constant at 14 days. It is not particularly difficult to tell when you are ovulating or getting ready to---the cervical mucus is more abundant, clear, and stringy. This mucus allows the sperm to swim freely. On non-fertile days when there is no egg there anyways, the mucus is scanty, cloudy, and tacky. You can tell the difference on toilet paper if you pay attention. You get fertile mucus for a few days before you ovulate, to assist sperm in getting past the cervix and into the womb. If you avoid making love during the fertile mucus times and for three days afterwards, you will not get pregnant. Alternatively, if you want to get pregnant, those days are your best bet. You can have fertile mucus more than once in your cycle. See http://www.woomb.org for more information on fertile mucus and fertility awareness.
Most of the time, as soon as you pass ovulation, it will return to a dry, sticky or lotiony state. That being said, a lot of women DO experience and increase in white lotion-like cervical mucous and later find out that they are pregnant. It can also be a sign of an infection too - so if accompanied by itch or odor, see your doctor at once.
A lot of different things happen to sperm. Seminal residue will exit the woman's vagina, taking with it some of the sperm. Sperm can be attacked by the woman's immune system. Sperm can also be nurished by the mucus produced by the cervix. Sperm can "hang out" in the cervix crypts for up to 5 days under ideal circumstances. They will then work their way up to the fallopian tube for conception. Under ideal circumstances, hunderds of millions of sperm get ejaculated, tens of millions can make it to the egg, only one gets in to fertilize the egg.
Pregnancy occurs by a couple having intercourse. The males' sperm swim into the fallopian tubes. When the female ovulates a ripe egg is released from the ovary, conception occurs when a sperm penetrates the egg. It takes about a week for the fertilized egg to travel to the uterus, once there the egg (now an embryo) implants into the uterine wall; pregnancy actually begins when the embryo implants into the uterus.
Sperm does reproduce. If you had sex more than once, you have have the chance of running out of sperm, this is why sperm reproduces.
Fertile quality cervical fluid, the slippery kind during ovulation, can keep sperm alive up to 5 days. The egg lasts 24-48 hours after ovulation. Once the cervical fluid has changed consistancy, conception is unlikely but not unheard of. Please use protection until you are sure that you are no longer fertile.
The mucus present is produced by the cervix and is a way of detecting fertile times in your cycle. Cervical mucus or fluid can be non-existent or dry, sticky, creamy, watery or egg white-like in consistency. Watery and egg white-like cervical fluid alerts you to your most fertile days during your menstrual cycle. Once you detect the egg white type fluid, you are very close to ovulation. Immediately after ovulation, that egg white type fluid will dry up. Once you detect that change, you have most likely ovulated. (Ovulation cannot be confirmed by cervical fluid patterns alone. Typically a thermal shift UPWARD for three consecutive days will confirm ovulation.) Some great books that discuss natural birth control and other female issues are 1) The Billings Method and 2) Taking Charge of Your Fertility. Both of these books are fabulous. :)
No. Once the sperm is in the egg no other sperm is allowed in.
Not immediately, but sperm dies when it dries up.
the missionary possion is one of the best postions for getting pregnant as he can get deeper inside you therefore the semen can get further into your womb makingnit easier to furtilise your egg It is a matter of timing more than position. You should make love just before you ovulate. Fortunately, it is not particularly difficult to tell when you are goint to be ovulating---the cervical mucus is more abundant, clear, and stringy. Non-fertile day mucus is scanty, cloudy, and tacky. You can tell the difference on toilet paper if you pay attention. You get fertile mucus for a few days before you ovulate, to assist sperm in getting past the cervix and into the womb. If you avoid making love during the fertile mucus times and for three days afterwards, you will not get pregnant. You can have fertile mucus more than once in your cycle. See http://www.woomb.org for more information on fertile mucus and natural family planning. i think the best way to get pregnant is to not use a condem and no birth pill postition doesnt matter
Although the male urine will not kill sperm, the sperm will die once it's left the body anyway.
No. Sperm can be present in fluids released before ejaculation.
It is not possible to remove sperm once it is inside you i think the best thing you can do is use protection
What I did was walking and walking! My mucus plug came out and from then I knew that keeping active was the best I could do! Good luck to you!
no once sperm hits the air it's dead it can not survive on a shoe
once sperm hit the air its dead
