The question however is , what is your sperm count on the first round? Sperm live inside a vagina for about three to five days. The important thing about your question is that if you have sex without using contraception up to five days before an egg bursts from the ovary (ovulation), the egg could be fertilized. For example, you could have sex on Monday and fertilize an egg that is not released until Friday. The egg, on the other hand, has a much shorter lifespan -- about twenty-four hours. So, having sex right before ovulation -- and up to one day afterward -- would be prime for fertilization. Whether or not you want that to happen is another story....

So whether it comes from the first round or the second round, does it matter?
