In order to be able to conceive, a man must be able to have and maintain an erection, have enough sperm that are the right shape and move properly, and have enough semen to produce the sperm ovum, according to the Mayo Clinic (opens in new tab).
The egg lives only about 24 hours after ovulation, so it needs to be fertilized soon for conception to occur. When your egg meets a healthy sperm on its way to the uterus, the two can bond and begin the process of creating a new life.

Is it possible? Yes, it is possible for men to become pregnant and give birth to children of their own. In fact, it’s probably a lot more common than you might think.
In order to get pregnant, you must have intercourse in the five days before ovulation or on the day of ovulation. This is called the “fertile window”. When the fertile window arrives depends on the length of your menstrual cycle.
Can you get pregnant if you have sex standing up? Yes, you can. Every time a girl has vaginal sex with a man, there is a risk that she will become pregnant.

People who were born male and live as males cannot become pregnant. However, a transgender man or non-binary person may be able to do this. It is only possible for a person to be pregnant if they have a uterus. The uterus is the womb in which the fetus develops.
A woman can become pregnant when she first ovulates – about 14 days before her first menstrual period. For some women, this happens as early as the age of eight or even earlier. Most often, ovulation begins before women turn 20.

A woman can become pregnant and have a baby as soon as she starts ovulating or producing eggs. This usually occurs about a year after the onset of menstruation, which usually occurs between the ages of 11 and 12 in North American women. However, some women ovulate late and others extremely early.
No, you cannot get pregnant just by kissing someone. Pregnancy can only occur when semen is ejaculated in or on a person’s vagina.
