How long does it take sperm to reach the egg and fertilize it after sex..i heard up to 30 mins, 2-3 days and 7 days?When the sperm is still swimming around after a day will it still be able to fertilize and get u pregnant?Like if i had sex on a friday or saturday will the sperm from that day be able to fertilize and get u pregnant on that next monday?

During the time of ovulation, an egg is available to be fertilized for only about 12-24 hours. But since sperm can live in the body for 3-5 days and then the egg is available for one day, your most fertile time is considered to be about 5-7 days.
