Sperm Swimmer Help

As I was hanging some new drapes I was reminded of the most famous gynecologic drape hanger of them all, a young Leeuwenhoek of Delft, Holland, who was so facinated by Galileo Galilei's newish invention the microscope that he toiled away in the interest of science and in 1677 described "little animals of the sperm" in 1677. It took about another couple of hundred years for scientists to really work out the whole puzzle of where they swim and what they do and just how they get there effectively, still aludes us. And in my drapes all I can see is the problem at hand: pale cream vers my brighter ginger samples, and I haven't really solved any scientific break throughs this morning. But yet, sperm swimming, like those of us drafting in a race, a bit of help from our friends. Can those sperm make it on their own from, well, where they start, to where they’re going on their own?  Not always apparently. A good deal of help is provided by the gals. In medical terms it’s called gamete transport, and not only the fallopian tubes have to be able to contract to get the guys to the gal, but the uterus itself has to be able to contract for a successful passage. And this help is considerable. After insemination we can find sperm within the fallopian tubes within 5 minutes.
