It all starts with sperm cells and an egg.
If semen gets in the vagina, the sperm cells can swim up through the cervix and uterus and into the fallopian tubes, looking for an egg.
They have up to 6 days to find an egg before they die.
When a sperm cell joins with an egg, it’s called fertilization.

How long does it take for sperm to reach the egg and get pregnant?
The Sperm’s Long Journey
A man may ejaculate 40 million to 150 million sperm, which start swimming upstream toward the fallopian tubes on their mission to fertilize an egg. 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.
What happens to your body when you conceive?
If no sperm is around to fertilize the egg, it moves through the uterus and disintegrates. Your hormone levels go back to normal. Your body sheds the thick lining of the uterus, and your period starts. If one sperm does make its way into the fallopian tube and burrows into the egg, it fertilizes the egg.
How long does it usually take to get pregnant?
Most couples are able to get pregnant within six months to a year. If you’re unable to conceive after a full year of trying, it’s a good idea to consult a fertility specialist.
Does urine flush out sperm?
Precum itself does not contain any sperm and can therefore not cause pregnancy on its own. Urinating can flush out any leftover sperm in the urethra. If people do this before having sex, then there should be no sperm in the urethra to be flushed out instead by the precum.
What pills can I drink to get pregnant?
Sometimes, you may need to get injections along with Clomid that you take by mouth. How well it works: As with clomiphene, injected hormones have a high rate of success in helping you to ovulate. Among women who do start to ovulate, as many as 50% are able to get pregnant.
Can you feel pregnant after 2 days?
While some pregnancy symptoms start very early, most of the time, you won’t notice anything right away. Anything that happens immediately after having sex, like spotting or increased discharge, is usually not related to pregnancy. Having symptoms a day or two after having sex is usually not a sign of pregnancy.
Can you feel when an egg gets fertilized?
Why might you feel cramping? To achieve pregnancy, the fertilized egg must attach to the uterine lining. Once the egg travels down the fallopian tubes and becomes a blastocyst, it begins the process of implantation in the uterus. Along with cramping, you may experience what is called implantation bleeding or spotting.
Can you still get pregnant if the sperm comes out?
You can get pregnant if you have intercourse and a male releases his sperm inside of your vagina. This is because the fluid that comes out of the penis before ejaculation may have leftover sperm (from a previous ejaculation). You can even become pregnant if you don’t have vaginal intercourse!

Is it hard to get pregnant?
The fact is, there’s still only one way to get pregnant — by a sperm fertilizing the woman’s egg, which can happen for only about 12 to 24 hours after ovulation — approximately 14 days before the end of a woman’s monthly cycle. Ovulation sometimes can be harder to predict if a woman’s cycles are irregular.
