In a Typical Pregnancy For a woman with a regular period, conception typically occurs about 11-21 days after the first day of the last period. Most women do not know the exact date of conception because it can be challenging to know exactly when ovulation occurs.
What conception date means?
Sperm can live in a womans body up to five days, even though the egg can be fertilized only during a 12-24 hour window of time. That moment of fertilization is your conception date. The fertilized egg then begins its journey to the uterus.
Is conception date the same as ovulation date?
Conception occurs during the part of a womans menstrual cycle called ovulation. Doctors consider day 1 of a menstrual cycle the first day of a womans period.
What happens to your body immediately after conception?
Your body sheds the thick lining of the uterus, and your period starts. If one sperm does make its way into the fallopian tube and burrows into the egg, it fertilizes the egg. The egg changes so that no other sperm can get in. At the instant of fertilization, your babys genes and sex are set.
