If one of the sperm cells penetrates the egg, the egg is fertilized and begins developing.
The egg takes several days to travel down the fallopian tube into the uterus.
After it is in the uterus, a fertilized egg usually attaches to (implants in) the lining of the uterus (endometrium).

What stops a fertilized egg from implanting?
Plan B acts primarily by stopping the release of an egg from the ovary (ovulation). It may prevent the union of sperm and egg (fertilization). If fertilization does occur, Plan B may prevent a fertilized egg from attaching to the womb (implantation).
Can conception occur in the uterus?
Conception occurs when a sperm cell from a fertile man swims up through the vagina and into the uterus of a woman and joins with the woman’s egg cell as it travels down one of the fallopian tubes from the ovary to the uterus.
How can you tell if an egg has been fertilized?
Early signs and symptoms include implantation bleeding or cramps, which can occur 5–6 days after the sperm fertilizes the egg. Other early symptoms include breast tenderness and mood changes.
What are the signs of successful implantation?
The cramps and spotting are symptoms of successful implantation, but also early signs of pregnancy.
Here are some other early signs of pregnancy that you might experience:
- Delayed period.
- Sensitive breasts.
- Becoming moody.
- Avoiding certain foods.
- Feeling bloated.
- Blocked Noses.
- Becoming constipated.
Can spermicide kill a fertilized egg?
The spermicide is put deeply inside the vagina and works to prevent pregnancy by stopping and killing sperm before they can reach an egg and fertilize it. Instructions can be different for each type of spermicide, so read the label carefully before use. Spermicide can be inserted/used up to one hour before having sex.
Can Plan B stop a fertilized egg?
Plan B works like other birth control pills to prevent pregnancy. Plan B acts primarily by stopping the release of an egg from the ovary (ovulation). It may prevent the union of sperm and egg (fertilization). If fertilization does occur, Plan B may prevent a fertilized egg from attaching to the womb (implantation).
Can you feel when you conceive?
After conception, the fertilized egg attaches itself to wall of the uterus. This can cause one of the earliest signs of pregnancy — spotting and, sometimes, cramping.
Can an egg be fertilized in the uterus?
Most eggs are fertilized by sperm while still in the fallopian tube. The fertilized egg then travels down the fallopian tube into the uterus. When the egg reaches the uterus, it may attach itself to the uterine lining (the endometrium) and pregnancy will begin.
When fertilized egg is implanted in the uterus?
Under normal circumstances, fertilization occurs in one of the Fallopian tubes, then the fertilized egg begins to make its way to the uterus. By about the fifth day after conception, the embryo finally reaches the uterus, where it implants itself in the endometrium, or uterine lining.
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.
How long should I lay down after insemination?
The researchers concluded that lying down for 15 minutes after intrauterine insemination increases pregnancy rates compared with moving around immediately afterwards. They suggest that “immobilisation for 15 minutes should be offered to all women treated with intrauterine insemination.”
How do you know when you’ve conceived?
But experiencing any of these early pregnancy symptoms before your period normally arrives could mean you’ve hit baby bingo:
- Tender breasts. Breasts are often the first body part to get the message when sperm meets egg.
- Darkening areolas.
- Sensitivity to smell.
Can you feel egg implantation?
The symptoms of early pregnancy can vary greatly from woman to woman. Some women experience mild implantation cramping several days after ovulation, while others do not. Once the egg travels down the fallopian tubes and becomes a blastocyst, it begins the process of implantation in the uterus.
Where do you feel implantation pain?
The pain should only last a few minutes to a few hours, and it is a sharp pain. In contrast, implantation cramping is a dull pain that is felt around the general lower abdomen area and your lower back. Unlike ovulation cramps, implantation cramping lasts for 1-3 days.
What side does the egg implant on?
When Does Implantation Bleeding Occur? About 6-12 days after conception (when the sperm joins with the egg), the embryo will implant itself into the wall of the uterus. This movement may break down some blood vessels within the uterus wall and cause some bleeding.
How can I stop pregnancy after one day?
Plan B. If you’ve had sex and didn’t use any type of birth control, or if the birth control you used failed, you have the option of emergency contraception up to three days afterward. Plan B-One Step prevents pregnancy for up to 72 hours (3 days) after having unprotected sex.
Can I use spermicide alone?
Spermicide isn’t a very effective birth control method when used alone. However, you can use spermicide with a barrier method — such as a condom, diaphragm or cervical cap — to improve its effectiveness with preventing pregnancy.
Does birth control reject sperm?
Taken daily, the mini-pill thickens cervical mucus and prevents the sperm from reaching the egg.
Does the morning after pill work if you have already conceived?
The morning-after pill will not work if you’re already pregnant. The morning-after pill, also known as emergency contraception (EC) helps prevent pregnancy; medication abortion terminates pregnancy. EC is effective when started within 120 hours (five days) of unprotected sex. The sooner it’s started, the better.
Can emergency pills prevent implantation?
There are no data supporting the view that levonorgestrel can impair the development of the embryo or prevent implantation. In contrast, other very effective methods of emergency contraception, such as mifepristone and intrauterine devices, can also inhibit implantation.
Does Plan B work if you already ovulated?
Morning-after pills won’t work if your body has already started ovulating. This is why timing is so important, especially if you’re using Plan B and other levonorgestrel morning-after pills.
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.
Can you ovulate on one side only?
If your menstrual cycles are regular then you pretty much know you are ovulating. Dr. Amos: It’s highly unusual to only ovulate from one ovary and not the other. If your cycles are regular (are they?) then you should ovulate every month. Your “feeling” of ovulation does not necessarily mean it’s just from that side.
What happens if a fertilized egg doesn’t implant?
Chemical pregnancy: This occurs when the egg is fertilized but doesn’t implant itself or develop properly in your uterus. You’ll experience bleeding and cramping while your cervix is dilated, and despite the fact that pregnancy tests might give positive results, the fetus hasn’t actually survived.
