Dear Ashleigh

Theoretically this is true but in reality the success rate for such an occurrence is in the region of 60 to 65%. It is still believed that in the end the final decision to allow the sperm to penetrate the egg is determined by the egg itself and in many instances sex determination is not simply a matter of timing
