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.
July 31st, 1964 was when I was born. What day was I conceived?
Intercourse is the actuual physical act of making love when the sperm is inserted into the vagina. Conception is the moment when the sperm actually fertilises the ovum which may be up to five days later. But unless you are actually being monitored 24/7 there is no way of knowing exactly when conception occurred, hence the up to 5 day variation on US scan
yes sperm stays viable for up to 5 days after intercourse
The sperm can live inside a womens body from 3 to 5 days :)
That is technically correct although as this may occur up to 48 hours after intercourse the actual moment is impossible to determine.
It is not likely. It can take up to four days after intercourse for conception (the success of the sperm fertilizing the egg) to even occur.
Yes, when predicting the length of a pregnancy, it's counted from conception, which is when the fertilized egg implanted in the uterus. This is anywhere from 1 to 7 days after intercourse, assuming this lines up with ovulation. Yes, Conception is the formation of a viable zygote by the union of the male sperm and female ovum; fertilization.
Extra information:If unprotected intercourse was undertaken on the 6/10, protected intercourse undertaken on the 7/10 and unprotected intercourse was undertaken twice 10/10 & 11/10.Ovulation occurred on the 11/10 (positive ovulation stick on the 10/10)..which sperm caused the conception?The 10th and 11th? Or...could one have escaped from the 7th?The 7th was 3 days after period had finished.
At conception, the sperm enters the egg and the DNA of the sperm merges with the DNA of the Egg cell.
Sperm + Vagina = Possibility to get pregnant.
Actual conception-sperm fertilizing the egg-can take up to 72 hours. On a side note, that is why Plan B is not abortion.
Conception occurs when a egg is fertilised by a sperm.
Conception or fertilisation are both terms applied to the fusing of sperm and egg.
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.
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)
The sperm enters the egg (conception) in the fallopian tube.
Douching after intercourse is estimated to reduce the chances of conception by only 15-25%. In comparison, proper condom use reduces the chance of conception by as much as 97%. Douching may force the ejaculate further into the vagina, increasing the chance of pregnancy.
Yes, that is exactly how you become pregnant; during sexual intercourse, if your partner ejaculates while inside you (not the butt). In addition, you'd have to be ovulating or close to ovulating for conception to occur.
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.
Either by masturbating or by intercourse.
