Look it up on Youtube. I am barely on Part 3 and I had NO idea that the woman's immune system sees sperm as an invading cell coming to cause harm so it produces acid to help kill them.

I looked it up because a friend say "hey go watch this" and it truly is amazing to even know the slim chances of becoming pregnant.

 Exactly. I didn't even know out of the millions of sperm ejaculated that only about 20 make it.

 It certaintly is! I had no idea what kinda journey they travel on. I really liked how they did the human perspective of it if there were as big as us.

 They can live for days but that doesnt mean there arent things to kill them and turn them in opposite directions. It is actually amazing how ovulation helps the sperm SO much. You should watch it. It is very informative.
