As for most of the things in life, just when you think that you know everything, there always appear something else that will surprise you. Here are the most important 7 things that every woman should be familiarized with about sperm!
- Sperm is not without calories
The composition of ejaculation is mostly consisted of enzymes and fructose. A cup full of seeds equals to one olive, or 5 calories.
- Sperm is not longest-running body liquid
Spermatozoa can also contain bacteria and other germs. But luckily, they can be destroyed easily: if you are exposed to chemicals (such as the chlorine in the pool), as a result of changes in the pH value, or even in very cold or very hot circumstances.
- Permanent in the womb
Sperm finds the best conditions to survive in the stomach where it can maintain in a period of 5 to 7 days and fertilize the egg. In the vagina, it lives only for a couple of hours, as same as in the most of the environments.
- Spermatozoa are not fighters
Contrary to people`s opinion that sperm enters the egg alone, the truth is that it always needs stimulation from the uterus in order to do so.
- Hot baths are slowing down spermatozoa
Besides alcohol, drugs and smoking, spermatozoa may be delayed from car seats or hot baths as well.
- Spermatozoa crossing extremely long way
Since spermatozoa are not bigger than 0,6 mm, they always need to pass a long way (for them) of about 15 cm in order to get to the egg. Compared to human`s measurements, that would mean- a person from 1,80 m to pass a hike route of 5,5 km, which I quite a long distance.
- Not all spermatozoa are in shape!
Although men hate the fact that not all spermatozoa go directly toward the target, it happens to be true. In one ejaculation of 40-600 million spermatozoa, just one half of them are healthy and pointed to the proper direction while the other half are useless.
