6. An egg has a twenty-four hour life span.
After ovulation, the mature egg remains alive in the fallopian tube only for about 24 hours. If it's not fertilised by sperm during this time, it dies and gets rebasorbed by the body. Since pregnancy does not occur, the corpus luteum in the ovary stops producing progesterone in another 14 days, and the menstrual period starts.
7. Conception doesn't take place the *** you have ***.
Many people imagine that the sperm which pour out during *** have to zoom in on the egg instantly to hit the jackpot. ( This is especially true which you watch all the National Geographic films on How Life Begins). Actually, the sperm remain alive in the female body ( in the fertile cervical mucus) for over 3-5 days . They are gradually released from this reservoir, when they swim upwards towards the fallopian tubes. If ovulation occurs during this time, conception can still occur - which means you could have had *** on the 20th; and even though you ovulate only on the 24th, you could still get pregnant ....im trying to help yall ladies conceive this cute kid..with my sperm of corse...
