Can you get pregnant if you stand up right away?

It doesn’t matter how or where a couple has sex — whether they’re standing up, the girl’s on top, or they’re in a pool or hot tub, or any other way — a girl can get pregnant. Sperm can swim up against gravity, and they’re fast. As soon as sperm make it inside the vagina, they start racing toward the girl’s egg.

How long does it take for sperm to reach the egg and get pregnant?

It takes about 24 hours for a sperm cell to fertilize an egg. When the sperm penetrates the egg, the surface of the egg changes so that no other sperm can enter. At the moment of fertilization, the baby’s genetic makeup is complete, including whether it’s a boy or girl.
