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


it takes up to 1 week for sperm to fertilize an egg depending on how fast the sperm swims


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


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.




It can take 12 - 72 hours for human sperm to reach the egg.


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


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


It depends how fast they swim, for Michael Phelps not long.


To reach the vagina, during normal sex is immediately, being the penis is inside the vagina when ejaculation occurs. I'm sure the question means to read how long does sperm take to reach an ovum, aka egg, that can take a few hours. Sperm live for up to 72 hours incase an egg has not been released by the ovaries yet. Hope this helps.


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 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


Yes, it takes a few days for the sperm to reach the egg and fertilize it but you can't know if you are pregnant or not until you can take a reliable test and that is the earliest 2 weeks after sex.


Hello, It takes 2-5 days for Sperm to reach and fertilize the waiting egg. Then a further 8-12 days for the Embryo to implant in the Uterus and begin releasing HCG. A few days after releasing HCG, pregnancy symptoms will occur.


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.


Sometimes a few seconds, sometimes a few days. It depends how fast the sperm is and how far along in the menstrual cycle the woman is


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


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.


well, the sperm can last up to 3 days inside a women. so around 3 days, but sometimes it dies before it can even reach it. :)


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



Flower sperm or pollen may be transported by wind, pollinators, or even humans. Pollinators may eat some of the pollen and accidentally rub the pollen on the female plant organ. Humans will use a Q tip to take pollen from one plant and put it on a plant of their choosing.
