I was wondering how long does it take for sperm to reach the egg?

I don't know where Doug got that info from but every book and every doc I have talked to said that it can take up to 74 hours.

I believe sperm move 1 inch in 8 minutes. This came right off a web page. "Only a few hundred of the 250 million healthy sperm reach the egg. It takes about two hours to make the entire journey to the egg; however, some sperm are Olympic swimmers and can reach the egg in a half an hour." In 74 hours the sperm could go to the end of the driveway and back. They stay alive for up to 5 days but that is rare its more like 3 days tops. I would say your could have fertilization in under an hour. That is FERTILIZATION NOT IMPLANTATION.
