how many days does it take to get pregnant after sex?

I had sex with my boyfriend yesterday, and today i’m craving cheese and salad and eggs… if it helps i’m supposed to go on my period soon. could I possibly be pregnant? we used a condom. how many days does it take to actually get pregnant? and how long does it take to experience the effects of it? like cravings.

Impossible to be pregnant right now. People have cravings cause their body needs something in the food they want. So, perhaps you wanted protein, and vitamins.

It takes the sperm 3 days to get to the egg, and 2 days for it to get to the uturus wall. Then it needs 2 weeks to get a strong hormone, which would then give you the possible cravings and symptoms. A lot of people have zero symptoms of pregnancy, but a missed period. Some people experience everything.

So, don’t worry. What you’re experiencing now is any usual craving.

    24-72 hours from the time sperm enters the body. IN that time you can use morning after pill to stop pregnancy.

    Pregnancy doesn’t start the day that partners have intercourse — it can take up to six days after intercourse for the sperm and egg to join and form a fertilized egg. Then, it can take six to 10 days for the fertilized egg to completely implant itself in the lining of the uterus. Pregnancy begins during implantation when the hormones needed to support pregnancy are released.

    Amen to Rad-Tech. If any part of this is a serious question, you need an education before you bring a baby into this world.

    It takes as long a fraction of a second-90 seconds. But you wouldn’t start feeling side effects a day later. But it could start to happen within a couple of days of conception. Lucky for you, if you don’t want to be pregnant, you still have a few days to take plan B. You have up to 72 hours to STOP the pregnancy. Good luck.

    you’re joking right? plz tell me you’re not asking this as a serious question because if you are you shouldn’t be having sex in the first place if you don’t know the answer to this stupid question.

    You could possibly be pregnant, but your cravings are completely unrelated.

    Anytime conception occurs (the sperm and egg join), it happens in the fallopian tube. The new baby (called a zygote or embryo at this stage) then "free floats" in the uterus toward one of the uterine walls. The woman’s body has no idea a baby has been conceived at that point.

    Only when the embryo attaches to the uterine wall does the body "realize" it’s pregnant and begin making the pregnancy hormones (which can cause cravings). This implantation occurs about 7-10 after ovulation. Obviously, I don’t know when you ovulated and you probably don’t either, but for most women implantation would occur 48 hours or more after conception.

    Conception itself can be delayed 24 hours or more after intercourse.
