So how long does it actually take for sperm to meet egg? How long is the sperm's actually journey? LOL

Weird question, but my hubby and I did the BD last nite and nite before and all day at work I been getting very low cramps. I never usually get cramps ever so its sorta odd. I figured maybe its just ovulation?? (the ovulation calendar said from the 13th thru the 18th I should be fertile and ovulate the 17th.) The 17th might or might not be accurate b/c I only been off the pill since October. One or two days wouldn't be long enough for sperm to meet egg if there was one present right? Ahh I am so confused. I think we'll just keep trying and I'll find out on the 31st!!!

  • it only takes an hour at the most for sperm to reach the end of the ride. They can live up to 5 days though. Also if you abstain from sex for the few days before you are fertil it will build up the sperm.hope this helps good luck
