o.k. becasue im just afraid she might loose the baby.
i dont know.
but thank you!
Rarely, some freakish versions of fertilization can result in a molar pregnancy, where there is either no developing embryo or an embryo that will not be able to survive at birth. There are three ways this can occur: Two sperm can fertilize one egg, with the loss of the mother’s chromosomes; one sperm can enter the egg and then divide, delivering a double dose of chromosomes to the egg instead of its usual single dose; or an abnormal sperm carrying two sets of chromosomes can fertilize the egg.
this makes my nerves jumpy.
sorry, Adnilre. We hope this is not the problem. God bless
oh no! its o.k.
im glad you all are helping.
im getting a better understanding.
its just….its crazy to hear.
thank you though!!
you get faternal twins….identical twins come from one sperm and the egg divides.
I think you were referring to fraternal twins.. and they come from two eggs each fertilized by a separate sperm
i guss they go in at the same time
I had the same problem, I had found out that my egg was fertilized by two sperm and I was 9 1/2 weeks along and we lost the baby. we where told by our Dr that this type of conception would never make it to full term and the end result would be in miscarriage. I ended up having D&C.. I’m sorry for what you are going threw it’s hard to deal with. my prayers are with you.
most people have that problem i had a girl, she is not even 2 months old and she is in the hospital risking for her life i was gonna have twins but the one died now this one is dying, if she does goog for a nother 2 weeks she will get to come home so yea there are alot of thimgs that are ****** up in this world, a lot of ppl smoke and drink whene they are pregnet that is another reason that babys are risking for the life to stay a live whene there own parents but there babies at risk that is pretty sad, so we all should just pray for all tha bay’s out there and for tha womans that are trying to have a baby but they might not be able to so just try yur bast and be a god parent whene yur kid id born dont go out and party with all of yur frinds and leave yur kid with a baby sitter you just met cuz you have no idea what that person would do with yur kid cuz y ou dont know how ppl are these days just stay home and show yur kids how to do stuff show him/her how to walk, talk and all that other stuff, my sister she had a boy is was her 3rd kid and she had no idea she was pregnant she woke up one moring and there was blood all over her bed so her boyfrinds rushed her to the hospital and they told her she was pregnant, they said that the umbilical cord was not attaced, so the next day she went to the batroom and the baby was born in the tolit he was born 4 months 12 days ealier and still alive and he just tured 3 in nov.so all yur prayers are with me…
****, can two different men be the father of the same baby?
what is dispermy?
can two sperm fertilize one egg? If yes, then what happens
yes it happens. but there is just few cases where there is a survivle. in thouse cases acctually after the fertilisation the fertalised egg divides in two and that means there are twins which are more similar to eachother than the fraternal ones but less than the identical ones. it is called semi-identical twins, where they shere the same mother genes but the sperm is not the same so they shere different genes from the father. most of the cases if this doesn’t happen they die. but evev if this happenes there can be cromosomal abnormality in sense that they have some male genes with cromosoms XY and some female genes with cromosoms XX. They might not be able to have children themselves.
This is a funny website… Lots of illiterate and misinformed responses. Please do not take these responses seriously, and consider the source.
Lolol sum times when ur gay den a sprim can split adn fratlize too eggz
still i didnt get my answer. please in simple way answer this question like a was a baby. Can two sperm fertilize one egg. Answer please.
Yes, two sperms can fertilize one egg but it is not consistent with fetal survival. It is a freak of nature but can occur. Egg may be old and allow two sperm to get in or two different men can fertilize on egg.
Yes, two sperm can fertilize on egg. This results in triploidy. It is not compatible with life. I just lost a baby to this early into my second trimester of pregnancy. (Mine was 69 XXY triploidy) If you look up triploidy you can find all the info. Triploidy can happen when an egg doesn’t divide properly (usually molar pregnancy in this case) or when two sperm fertilize one egg (which isn’t always molar).
Triploidy may also occur when nondisjunction happens in the male sperm causing a forty-six –chromosome sperm.
I know of a successful 2 sperm and 1 egg pregnancy because that is what happened with my twin and I. My mother did not know she was having twins until 3 days before we were born (1 month early), they only heard 1 heart beat. So 3 days before she gave birth the doctor did a sonogram to see if “the baby” would be too big to deliver and what they found was…. 1 sac with 1 baby and inside that sac they found another sac with 1 baby which was me.
ok….so this happened to my mom and it made my little brother,
she doesnt know who the dad is because he is alot like both of the men she was sleeping with at the time
she thinks their is 2 dads
my brother came out healthy and she didnt lose him or anything
is this possible?
you get faternal twins….identical twins come from one sperm and the egg divides.
It is extremely rare for fraternal twins to develop this way. Most fraternal twins come from two eggs fertilized by two sperm. When two sperm fertilize one egg and actually survive, they are called semi-identical twins, as they have identical genes from the mother, but different genes from the father.
fraternal twins = 1 sperm + 1 egg AND 1 spem + 1 egg … all in the uterus at the same time!
identical twins = 1 sperm + 1 egg SPLIT forming 2 embryos
so… 1 egg + 2 sperm = rare
hope everything turns out ok
This happened to me actually. Two sperms fertilized one egg, two things could happen. If the egg splits then you have semi-identical twins, which one is male and the other one has both genetalia. or if the egg doesnt split then the baby has three sets of chromosomed and its called a partial molar pregnancy (this is what happened to me). The different between a partial molar pregnancy and a molar pregnancy is that a molar pregnancy is when the mother releases an empty egg and a sperm fertilizes it, then it just turns into a bunch of clusters that if left untreated can develop into cancer. With a partial molar pregnancy the baby usually stops developing by the 2nd trimester, for me my baby stopped at 9 weeks. There was a case (found out by researching) that a lady made it to the 2nd trimester then started hemorraghing and died. If you do find out its a partial molar, then i strongly suggest you do a DNC to have it removed, because that will decrease your chances of the abnormal cells regrowing. Apparently by a partial molar developing in your uterus creates abnormal cells to develop in your uterus as well. If the abnormal cells start regrowing, it creates tumors in your uterus that are 20% chance of cancer, so the treatment for that is chemo. And chemo is still the treatment if the clusters arent cancerous. So i know that is a lot of information to take in at once, it was for me.
if 2 sperms did fertilize 1 egg, it causes Triploidy and in humans, it is lethal. Often resulting in spontaneous abortion or early death of the baby due to retardation ( improper growth of limbs, face etc)

So are ya’ll considered twins? If so, are ya’ll identical?
I had to get in on this because I am doing a research in my Psychology class and I have semi-identical twin boys who are healthy, happy, and very much normal! As a matter of fact, smarter than most children period. I can’t believe the information on here that people don’t know what they are talking about. Also, my boys were one egg, two sperm and a sac within a sac. They developed fine, were born a lil’ early, but were only in the hospital for 11 days. Now they are 5, playing soccer and going to kindergarten. I had a wonderful pregnancy and consider myself very lucky. There are too many horror stories out there and i think that we all get misleading information. Semi-identical twins don’t yet have the recognition thet deserve because it is rare, but it can and does happen and its BEATIFUL!!!!!!! ;)
sorry to drop in on this post iv actually had this unfort circumstance happen to me in result of miscarry @ 14 wks .. i just took 2 test this morning & iv fallen pregnant again only 11 wks after miscarrying & about 5-4 wks after having my period, is it to soon to get pregnant ? Im so scared it is & im gna miscarry again
We have recently been through ivf as I have severe endometriosis and went for our 7 1/2 week scan but the embryo didnt develop. our fertility clinic had it tested and it turned out it had 3 sperm in it. our fertility doctor was surprised but said it was good misscarrying an abnormal embryo rather than a normal one. We are about to go through our next ivf and i am worried its going to happen again. Any ideas on what causes this?
Well basicly when two sperm enter one ovum it doesn’t harm the ovum… in fact only half of each sperm’s DNA transfers into the egg. You are right- this is called Dispermy. You will not need to worry about your sister- in- law’s child… she/he will live as normal and two sperm will not harm one baby.
I hope the baby is alright and that this information was helpful.
P.S I can’t spell!!!!
