Question

How long does it take for a sperm to get to the egg? Just get to it, not fertilize it. Could it be more than a month?

For most women if they are pregnant, how long does it take them for their belly to grow bigger?


Answer

Sperm from a man's semen, if ejaculated into vagina, can take as little as 20 minutes to reach an egg if it is present. Sperm can survive up to six days inside a woman before they completely die off.

Most women begin to show around the third or fourth month of pregnancy. But much depends on how slender the woman is. A thin woman will show sooner than a chubby woman because people notice the contrast.
