They day you have intercourse isn't necessarily the day the sperm and the egg connnect. Sperm can live for up to 3 days inside you before fertilizing the egg. And there is almost no way of knowing the exact date of conception. Aug 21st is just a really good estimate. If the father is what you are unsure of, have a blood test taken after the baby is born if it matters to you. Otherwise, you can always raise the baby as yours and your boyfriends if that is what you choose to do. Good luck! you!

YES!!! The meaning of Conception is the formation of a viable zygote by the union of the male sperm and female ovum; fertilization.

Do you mean can intercourse cause harm to the developing embryo? If a woman has unprotected sex with more than one man, the sperm that was in the vagina and uterus first - will spread a type of antibodies to fight off the new sperm, this happens prior to conception. Soon after conception your progesterone levels start rising to protect the developing embryo. This will cause the cervix to produce a mucous plug that has antibodies, which prevent germs, viruses and even sperm from gaining access to the baby and the placenta.

Can you be preganent without intercourse?

Yes. Vaginal penetration by the penis is not necessary for conception to occur. The sperm can be injected into the vagina with a syringe or other devices, and by doing so intercourse has not occured. Also it is possible, that if the male were to ejaculate onto the vaginal opening, that some of the sperm could enter the vagina, and swim through the cervix into the uterus and fertilize the ovum, although the odds of this occurring are slim, it is possible. (If the female were a virgin, this could be called an immaculate conception)
