How long does it take sperm to reach an egg?

According to WebMD, the fastest sperm can get to a fallopian tube is about 30 minutes, meaning that the quickest conception could occur following sex is in the half-hour range . This means that, following sex, the egg could be fertilized before you've gotten up to get a drink of water.

According to Harms, conception can occur as many as five days after sex or possibly longer, as strong, healthy sperm can survive for about that many days (and perhaps even longer) in the supportive environment of the fallopian tubes as they wait for an egg to be released, if one isn't already present. Here's how it works: Fertilization happens in one of the fallopian tubes, which carries an egg from an ovary to the uterus. It can take up to seven days after intercourse for sperm and egg to join and become a fertilized egg. Usually, it's because the sperm gets into the fallopian tube before the egg is released.

Here is more from Answers.com contributors:

  • I would say at least a couple of hours, but it could take up to three days. Depending you your body and where the egg is in the cycle.
  • The sperm that will be able to fertilize the egg will leave the cervix, at the most, 30 minutes. It does not take 3 days for the sperm to get to the fallopian tubes to ovulation. It can take minutes for at least some of the sperm to reach the fallopian tubes where they are stored waiting for the egg to pop out if it hasn't already popped out.
  • As a general rule, less than three days.
  • Well from what the Doctor told me when I got pregnant, it can take anywhere from the moment it happened to 8 days after the moment. Sorry if that doesn't help any just what I was told.
  • I don't know the answer, but I will tell you what I do know. Sperm travels about 1/8 inch per minute. Sounds pretty slow until you realize Sperm is about 1/600 inch long. If you scale that up to "human" size that's about 4-5 miles / hour -- slow jogging speed. The penetration of the penis and location of the egg in the fallopian tubes is only two factors that will affect time. Not all sperm swim in the correct direction. Some "hang back" and may not move into the fallopian tubes for 2 or 3 days. This is why you can have intercourse before ovulation and still get pregnant by sperm from a few days ago.
  • Sperm can last 3 to 5 days inside a woman. Every woman ovulates differently. People will tell you the average woman ovulate 14 days from the day you start your period
  • It takes about two hours to make the entire journey to the egg; however, some sperm are Olympic swimmers and can reach the egg in a half an hour. If no egg is available to fertilize, the sperm swim around patiently waiting to bump into one. Because there is no chemical or physical attraction of the sperm for the egg, the sperm literally must bump into the egg.
  • Straight from the professionals it is instantenious, as soon as the sperm gets inside it happens as quick and clapping your hands.

    Yes, there is a chemical attraction to the egg, the egg has a protein sperm swim towards.

  • Within three hours after intercourse. And they die off after three days..unless of course your taking birth control or the morning after pill.

How soon can you take clomid after a miscarriage?

Well, it depends how early or late your miscarriage happened! You should of course consult with your doctor how long should you wait to TTC again. A rule of thumb, if I can call it that way, is that you should wait at least as long as your pregnancy lasted. For example, if you had a miscariage in week 8 of your pregnancy you should wait 8 weeks, so around two periods and then you are free to TTC again and of course with the help of clomid, if prescribed by a doctor.

Can clomid cause you to miss your period?

After extensive research on Clomid and after having used Clomid for 3 months, there is nothing out there that shows this as a side effect. However, Clomid should be used by women who are NOT ovulating. If you are already ovulating, save yourself the discomfort of the side effects and at the very least, limit your Clomid treatment to 3 months to lower your risk of cysts and cancer. I was ovulating normally but took the Clomid and now that I am no longer taking Clomid, I am no longer ovulating. Thus, not only did I not become pregnant, I also adversely affected my future chances of conceiving.

If you are taking 100 mg of Clomid how much would that increase your odds of becoming pregnant?

hi i was put on clomid after 3 miss carriage's.i had to take my temperature every morning before getting out of bed to predict ovulation.now these days you can get a ovulation predictor test at any drugstore.i releasted 2 eggs only one took that resulted in my healthy baby girl.i lost the twin.as far as i know clomid can cause multiple births as almost did in my case.it worked for me i'd say your chances of becoming pregnant are great.especially if intercorse takes place around time of ovulation.i'm on my 4th pregnancy now so far have 3 healthy girls.clomid made me fertile mertile.good luck

That is difficult to say. From what I know, and I am not an MD, just well-read, it only increases your chances if that is the dosage that causes you to ovulate successfully. In other words, if 50mg failed to cause ovulation then 100 may work or 150 or even 200. See, it depends on your body's response to the concentration of the drug, which mimics estrogen in your body. One thing I think is that higher doses may very slightly increase your chance for multiple egg release, ergo multiple births, usu. no more than triplets with clomid though.

Can you buy the fertility drug clomid at a pharmacy store and if not can you get any fertility drugs at a pharmacy?

Yes you can buy it at most pharmacies, but only with a prescription.

Nearly every drug can be bought online just do a web search. However you must be under a doctor's care.

Clomiphene is extremely dangerous to use except under the direction of a fertility expert as it may induce super ovulation (lots of eggs being produced) which may cause damage to your ovaries or you may conceive lots of embryos and miscarry them all. Clomid is used for women who are not ovulating so it is not a cure-all for infertility, the exact cause has to be investigated. With a prescription, you can buy any fertility medication at a local pharmacy. Just call a pharmacy and ask if they are willing to order it for you. Remember - "with a prescription."

Any fertility drug that is prescribed by a doctor is not sold OTC. Fertilaid is sold only online. Fertility Blend, Pro-creation can be found in herbal shops, GNC, Vitamin Shoppe. These fertility pills doesn't require a doctor's prescription.

When is the best time to take a pregnancy test?

  • The best time to take a pregnancy test is from when you think you may be pregnant however they will only work from the first day of your last period.
  • The optimal time is the day your period is due or after, and with first morning urine, using this timeframe will make your results more accurate.
  • Usually, the reason for you to wait until you have missed at least one day of your period, is because that is the first indication that you may be pregnant. Home Pregnancy Tests (HPTs) work by detecting the presence of the pregnancy hormone hCG in your urine. hCG is produced in your body after the fertilized egg (embryo) implants in the uterus. This usually takes place about 6 days after conception (sex), but can take longer in other women. You can use a HPT at any time, but you may be wasting your time and money if you take it too soon. If you cannot wait, use a HPT about 7 to 10 days after possible conception, but if it comes up negative, you may want to take another test a week or more later just to make sure. Birth control pills usually will not affect the results of a HPT, but in most cases should be discontinued if you think you are pregnant. Your doctor can perform a blood test which can detect hCG much earlier than a HPT. In any case, if you think you are pregnant, even though you may get a negative result, you should check with your doctor for the final word.
  • If you are not having your period for 2 to 3 months it is probably due to your birth control regimen. Most birth control regimens provide 21 days of hormones and 7 days of inert sugar "spacer" pills. The hormone pills keep your body from having a period and if taken for 3 months straight, they can delay your period for 3 months. This has been a popular option that has caught on in the last few years.

How long does it usually take for clomid to work?

Clomiphene citrate (Clomid) strats to work on the first cycle after you start taking it. If pregnancy does not happen, dosage may be adjusted.

For some women, it's worked the first month they've taken it. Most doctors feel that if it hasn't worked in 3 months, you'll probably need some other kind of intervention in addition to taking Clomid (such as combining it with IUI) to be successful.

If you are spotting when should you start taking Clomid?

Day one would be considered the day you actually see red. So if you are suppose to take it days 3-7....... then take it two days after. Do not start taking it until you actually have a true period because it should not be taken if there is a chance you could be pregnant.

Is there a chance of twins on clomid?

Yes! I took Clomid for less than six cycles and the two times I actually ovulated I released more than one egg. In fact I am currently eight weeks pregnant with fraternal twins right now due to the clomid!

So if you don't want twins, think twice! this is what i found on the web!Twin pregnancies may occur in as many as 5% of the women who use Clomid. Triplet pregnancies are far more rare.

Does Clomid or Progesterone cause brown spotting?

Possibly, because it's something new to ur body, so this is how your body reacts to this. Yes it can because it's a hormone. This puts your other hormone levels off balance for awhile. I went into early menopause (38 years old because of a trauma in my life) and I got those brown spots on my face but stayed out of the sun (wore sun lotion) and wore a baseball cap or my hippy hat while fishing and they eventually went away. I still have one slight brown mark on the lower part of my left cheek.

How do iknow iam ovulating whil iam on clomid?

The only way to know is to take an ovulating test (you can buy it at Wal-Mart or any other retail store or drug store). It costs anywhere from $15-$30. You take the test every day until it shows that you are ovulating (it's just like a pregnancy test).
