  • It varies greatly. Whatever you do, don't stop using contraception unless you are ready to get pregnant that very day! Some people get pregnant the day after they stop the pill (everyone I knew when I was trying to conceive!), some need a few months to try (like me), and some get pregnant while still trying to prevent!

  • lol... I think she means after having sex, when does the sperm meet the egg and implant?? I heard between 5-7 days.

  • concieve immediately. your egg only lives for 12 - 24 hours. can take anywhere from 6-12 days.

  • Depending on your body, sperm can stay alive in there up to five days.
