Question: Affecting embryo with different semen

 bones4261 - Sat Nov 01, 2008 4:50 pm

Can the embryo of a baby (approximately 8 weeks old) formed from the fertilisation by one man be affected by the semen of another man?

User avatar Hello,
No, the baby once conceived is well insulated and no harm can come from any semen.

Best wishes.
