Does conception date mean the date you actually had intercourse and the sperm connected with the egg?

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

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.
