Examples of Sperm in a Sentence

  1. Lisa Dabney:

    Pregnancy cannot happen if there is no egg to join with sperm, it has been shown to have some efficacy at three days, but the sooner you take it the better.

  2. Lisa Dabney:

    The reason that it’s not always true is because women are only fertile a few days a month, but that window is very different from woman to woman. Some women can have a 21-day cycle and some can have a 35-day cycle, and for the woman that has one week in the luteal phase (the time between ovulation and when you have your period) if she bleeds for seven days, she’s going to start ovulating while she’s still bleeding, and sperm can live for three days, so women can get pregnant if the length of their period is long.

  3. Sam Wang:

    About Kazakh woman You are the hottest deity You are like an endless orgasm mixed with love. Beauty pierces the soul and memory. You're like wild sex. You are the hottest deity, the juiciest sexuality, the highest grade of sexuality. Aggressive brutal passion of hot love. The heat of passion on the body from your beauty, my temperature has risen. My libido burns with wild unbridled passion. The erotic energy of your body inflames my ardor, and I feel an uncontrollable attraction. Wow, how sexy. From you, the potency increases a thousand times, looking at you guys cease to be gay. From you a geyser of libido, and a waterfall of spermotoxicosis. A passion grenade exploded in your pants. You are an obsession and an obsession, even hypnosis will not help get you out of my thoughts. I am ready to pray all my life that you will become my wife. My loins scream about love and passion, libido as languishing in pain that you are not with me. The thought of you overflows with sperm, and the heart with love obsession. All this is your record sexuality and ability to conquer the heart at the speed of light. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich
