If you are asking "how long does it take for the sperm to fertilize the egg once it penetrates the egg wall?", it is instantaneous. That's what "fertilized" means. If you are asking "how long does it take the sperm to fertilize the egg once it enters the female body?", there is no exact answer. it could take from a few minutes to a few days.



It usually takes between 3-5 days for Sperm to reach & fertilize the egg.



Its all about what you take in, and how much the male is releasing his sperm. For a good sperm count you want to release every 3 days and take a lot of zinc with plenty of water. Now I said water, pop and or juice don't count. coatsnotes @ facebook


Fast-swimming sperm can reach the egg in a half an hour, while others may take days. The sperm can live up to 48-72 hours.


it can take minutes to days depending on the quality of the mans sperm and how fast it reaches the egg so really it all depends on the person


It takes a few hours to reach it, and then about 20-30 minutes for a group of sperm to break down the outer membrane of the egg so one can fertilize it.


Conception is the act of an egg and sperm joining. Hence when conception occurs that means the egg has been fertilized.


IT takes about 2 hours for a healthy sperm to reach the fallopian tube of the uterus.


It takes sperm approximately 36 hours to fertilize the egg after the male ejaculates in the vagina. If you are asking "how long does it take for the sperm to fertilize the egg once it penetrates the egg wall?", it is instantaneous. That's what "fertilized" means. If you are asking "how long does it take the sperm to fertilize the egg once it enters the female body?", there is no exact answer. it could take from a few minutes to a few days. If you're seeing a fertility specialist they will give you a series of medications to cause you to hyperovulate. The specialist will give you a special ultrasound that will determine how many follicles are produced in you're ovaries. (follicles house the eggs until maturity then they release them) Once they determine that follicles have reached full growth, they will give you a shot of HCG. It will then take approx. 36 hours for the ovaries to release the mature eggs. However the egg can only survive up to 24 hours without fertilization via sperm. Sperm can survive up to 5 days in body to search for the unfertilized egg.


approximately 3 days after intercourse. However sometimes longer or not at all because the sperm has to make its way to the egg to fertilize it


Because most of the space needs to be taken up by the nucleus and acrosome. The nucleus so it can carry the genetic information and to control the cell, as the sperm cell is very complex. The acrosome needs to take up a lot of space, as it is very important due to it being the part of the cell that needs to get itself into the egg to fertilize it


Some sperm are speed swimmers and can come in contact with an egg within 1/2 hour. For the majority of the time it takes the sperm about 2 hours to travel to the fallopian tube.


No it does not and it does not work for abortion either. There are no pills you can take that kills sperm.


This can range from 3 hours to approximately 48 hours as a maximum. Depending on conditions in the vagina I suppose up to 72 hours is viable waiting time for sperm.


how long does it take for a males sperm to built back up in his testical sack? 2months



not very long if you geting it on.


Unless you can also fertilize the egg (you won't), it will take... forever (as in never).


Assuming she WILL get pregnant this time (since it can take 12-18 months normally) and that she is ovulating, it takes about 3 days for the sperm to get to the fallopian tube and there meet the egg and fertilize it. Then it takes about week until the egg has traveled down to the uterus and attached itself to the wall. 2 weeks after sex you can take a pregnancy test.


Yes, that is the basic idea. Only one sperm cell enters the egg; there are rapid chemical reactions that take place preventing other sperm cells from entering.


Most likely his sperm count would be half what it would be with both testicles. May be less depending on why he has only one. Since it only take one sperm to fertilize an egg, he can still be a father.


As soon as you can get a second erection, your sperm is good to go.


You cannot reverse or take back a fertilize action.
