Natural Herbal Remedies For Blocked Fallopian Tubes
After ejaculation, sperm swim through the vaginal canal and into the cervix then into the fallopian tubes. The sperm immediately make their journey upon ejaculation. I do not believe anyone really knows an exact amount of time it takes- there are lots of different answers. However, sperm can live up to 5 days in fertile cervical mucus but the majority live three.
The only day you can conceive is when you ovulate. The day you ovulate, your body releases the egg. The egg lives a maxium of 24 hours. Since the sperm can live 3-5 days in fertile cervical mucus, you can conceive if you have sex anytime in your fertile phase. Your fertile phase is the 3-4 days prior to ovulation and the day of ovulation.
So let’s say you had sex on a Monday but didn’t ovulate until Wednesday, you could conceive.
The egg would be fertilized on the day you ovulated (the day of conception). It takes the fertilized egg around a week and up to 10 days to implant into the uterus. Once the egg is implanted then your body starts releasing pregnancy hormones HCG. Prior to implantation you are not pregnant. Prior to implantation your body does not even know that you conceived.
First the sperm have to reach the egg and fertilize it (ovulation must occur for this to happen). Then it starts it’s journey which can take 6-12 days on average. Some people may notice implantation bleeding (very light pink-brown spotting) once this occurs.
Sperm takes 6-7 hours to make it’s journey to the fallopian tubes. This is why it’s good to have sperm already waiting when you ovulate…your egg only lives 12-24 hours, and sperm lives for 3-5 days in fertile mucus.
