If no sperm is around to fertilize the egg, it moves through the uterus and disintegrates.
Your hormone levels go back to normal.
Your body sheds the thick lining of the uterus, and your period starts.

What happens to a woman body immediately after conception?
The egg becomes fertilized, moves into the uterus and implants itself onto the uterine wall. Cells begin dividing, and a fetus starts to develop.

How long does it take for sperm to reach the egg and get pregnant?
The Sperm’s Long Journey
A man may ejaculate 40 million to 150 million sperm, which start swimming upstream toward the fallopian tubes on their mission to fertilize an egg. Fast-swimming sperm can reach the egg in a half an hour, while others may take days. The sperm can live up to 48-72 hours.
Can you feel when you conceive?
After conception, the fertilized egg attaches itself to wall of the uterus. This can cause one of the earliest signs of pregnancy — spotting and, sometimes, cramping.
What happens after an egg is fertilized?

Can you feel pregnant after 2 days?

Does urine flush out sperm?
Precum itself does not contain any sperm and can therefore not cause pregnancy on its own. Urinating can flush out any leftover sperm in the urethra. If people do this before having sex, then there should be no sperm in the urethra to be flushed out instead by the precum.
Can you still get pregnant if the sperm comes out?
You can get pregnant if you have intercourse and a male releases his sperm inside of your vagina. This is because the fluid that comes out of the penis before ejaculation may have leftover sperm (from a previous ejaculation). You can even become pregnant if you don’t have vaginal intercourse!
