sperm cell traveling along fallopian tube

What's happening inside

The sperm cell can be seen here inside the fallopian tube. Since sperm can stay active and alive inside you for up to 72 hours, it's possible to get pregnant even if you don't ovulate for two to three days from now.

This is an optimum time to conceive, but try not to think too much about when you might be ovulating and just enjoy sex!
