No. The first sperm to reach the egg fertilizes it and the rest have no affect on it. Hello, No it doesn't. Sperms main objective is to fertilise the egg. If the egg has already been fertilised, then the sperm simply dies without causing harm to yourself or the Embryo.

Pregnant days before period?

No, you wont because the periods are there to prepare the uterus for the reception of fertilized ovum. the start as a result of the breakdown of the previous ovum which was not fertilized. after ovulation the ovum survives for 2 days unless it is fertilized by sperm. it then breaks down, this cause a hormonal response that leads to the periods starting up again. this happens to clean out the old lining on the uterus and normally lasts from 3 to 7 days. after this a fresh lining is built up on the uterus a new ovum is released an if it is not fertilized the whole thing starts again. By the time you are within 2 days of your normal period starting ther is no live ovum to fertilize.

Where is the fertilization of the baby takes place?

The fertilization of an egg cell by a sperm cell takes place, in normal pregnancies, in the woman's uterus. The fertilized egg then implants into the wall of the uterus and begins to grow there until it is time to deliver the baby. In some circumstances, however, the sperm might find the egg before the egg reaches the uterus, and the egg may be fertilized in the fallopian tube. Often, an egg fertilized in the fallopian tube will continue its path to the uterus and implant normally. It is possible, though, that the egg will implant in the fallopian tube and become an ectopic pregnancy. If not caught early, this complication can cause problems for both mother and baby.

Why do the lining of the uterus thickens from around day 5 until some days after the egg has been released?

The lining of the uterus thickens because it goes into a protective mode. This is to protect the egg should it become fertilized. Sometimes this can cause cramping during the menstrual cycle.

How can an ectopic pregnancy occur?

An ectopic pregnancy is when the fertilized egg stays in the Fallopian tube instead of moving into the uterus. As it grows it can rupture the tube and cause serious bleeding so it is a medical emergency. Past infections or other narrowings of the tube can be a cause. Usually no cause is identified.

Why do all woman have menstruation?

A woman's internal sex organs consist of two ovaries, the Fallopian tubes, the uterus (womb) and the vagina. The ovaries contain the ovum with which she is born. During each period, an ovum will usually ripen and mature due to the action of hormones that circulate in the bloodstream. At maturity the ovum is released the ovary and drifts down the Fallopian tube into the uterus. The lining of the uterus, the endometrium, has been thickened as aresult of the hormones and isprepared receive the fertilised egg. If the egg is fertilized and the woman becomes pregnant, it will fasten itself onto the endometrium. However If the egg is not fertilized, hormonal changes cause the endometrium to fall away and menstruation begins. Menstrual discharge is composed of the endometrium itself, together little fresh blood caused by the breaking of very fine blood vessels within the endometrium as it falls away from the inside of the uterus.

How can you have an eptopic pregnangy after getting gonorrhea?

Gonorrhea causes an infection of your cervix which, if untreated, can move to your uterus and fallopian tubes. This infection can cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), which may lead to inflammation and/or scarring of the fallopian tubes. Any damage to fallopian tubes can cause a fertilized egg to become "stuck" before it reaches the uterus, causing an ectopic pregnancy.

What is the earliest implantation bleeding occurs?

Implantation can sometimes cause a bit of spotting or bleeding, known as implantation bleeding. Implantation bleeding is a small amount of bleeding in the uterus that occurs when the egg implants into the uterus. A specific tissue, known as trophoblast, develops from the fertilized egg and it surrounds it. It is what attaches the egg to the inside of the uterus, and actually eats its way into the uterus. The trophoblast actually pulls the egg to the inside of the endometrium. Trophoblast even invades the mother's blood vessels and diverts her blood to the fertilized egg. Sometimes, this blood will leak and this causes implantation bleeding. Thus, it is possible that it can be as many as 5 to 14 days between the time of sexual intercourse and the time that the fertilized egg implants in the uterus. 14 days is a little long, it usually takes five days just for the egg to travel down the fallopian tube.

Does anteverted uterus cause intercourse pain?
