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.


Does pregnancy cause inflammation in the uterus?

Pregnancy does not cause inflammation in the uterus. Inflammation of the uterus during pregnancy would serve no biological purpose.


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.


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 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.


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 the copper T cause dryness as it blocks the fluids from the uterus?

What does it mean if your uterus lining is thick but you are not pregnant?

Premenstrually the lining thickens and is later shed if there is no fertilized egg to implant into the lining. A hormonal imbalance, infection or endometriosis can all cause a thickening of the lining, irregularly during your cycle.


What is the contraceptive method?

Contraceptive ("against conception") devices and methods aim to prevent pregnancy. The various contraceptive devices and methods use one of two techniques to avoid pregnancy: preventing sperm and ova from meeting or making the environment unsuitable for fertilization. Hormonal methods may either prevent the ovary from releasing an egg into the uterine tubes or cause changes in the cervix or uterus, making it difficult for sperm to enter the uterus or implant a fertilized egg in the uterus. Barrier methods, withdrawal, natural family planning, and sterilization prevent sperm and ova from meeting. Intrauterine devices interfere and prevent the implantation of a fertilized ovum in the uterus


Can anteverted uterus cause bladder problems?

An anteverted uterus is perfectly normal. It is the most common uterine type. It does not cause bladder problems.


What happens to the egg once it is being released from the ovary?

An ovum is released into the fallopian tube (where it may be fertilized by sperm from the male or not) ovum will then continue traveling down the fallopian tube it reaches the uterus. When it arrives, and if it has been fertilized by sperm, it attaches itself to the lining of the uterus and continues to grow. If the ovum is not fertilized it will die, this will cause progesterone and oestrogen hormone levels will drop. Without these hormones the lining that covers the uterus in preparation for receiving the fertilized egg breaks up and is released through the vagina. This is known as a 'period' or menstrual bleeding. In the case that egg is fertilized, the implantation of the embryo produces another hormone Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin (H.C.G.) which tells the ovary to continue to produce progesterone. H.C.G. This is the hormone that pregnancy tests are designed to detect. Progesterone continues to be secreted during pregnancy, first by the corpus luteum and then by the placenta, until the child is born. Progesterone blocks the release of the hormones, which are responsible for ovulation so that further eggs are not released during pregnancy and normally no more periods happen during this time.

Does Puberty cause stomach cramps?

For girls on their periods, then yes. This happens because when an egg is not fertilized in the ovaries, the uterus sheds its lining because it is not needed. The over flexing of the uterus may cause some soreness in the lower abdomen. Only some girls experience cramps however, and you can dull the pain usaually with a hot bath/shower, heating pad, and you could also get up and excersize or stretch.


What is implantation bleeding and when does it happen?

Implantation bleeding is vaginal discharge which usually contains a small amount of pinkish or brownish blood. Only about a third of pregnant women experience implantation bleeding. It can happen at the time the fertilized egg implants in the uterus, on average between 6 to 12 days past ovulation. Unless accompanied by cramping, backache or increased bleeding, a small amount of blood being discharged should be considered as implantation bleeding which is nothing to be concerned about. 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 7 to 14 days between the time of sexual intercourse and the time that the fertilized egg implants in the uterus.

Do you have to have a recent period to get pregnant?

No a menstrual cycle only happens AFTER you didnt become pregnant. If no egg was fertilized or implanted into the uterine lining, then u have a period. The uterus expels the lining and begins preparing for ovulation again. Which includes building up the uterine lining again, and hormones cause an egg to be released. If the egg is fertilized it will implant and u will not have a period, likewise if it isn't fertilized then it will pass out and be followed a week or so later with your cycle beginning again.


Why does the uterus hurt?

Uterine pain can be caused by noncancerous growths in the uterus, called fibroids, which can cause pain and bleeding


Why do you have cramps when you on your periods?

After a woman enters puberty, her cycle begins. At the end of the cycle (which is plus of minus 28 days) the bloody inner lining of the uterus breaks down when the egg was not fertilized. The liquification of that bloody lining is what is expelled at the end of the cycle (period). The uterus contracts to help the bloody lining expel. The uterine contractions are what cause the feeling of cramps.
