why doesn't a women body reject the sperms since it is an external organism , instantly
i.e, it should have produced the antibodies against it right?

    If women's bodies rejected sperm, we wouldn't be here. We're designed to reproduce and rejecting sperm wouldn't allow reproduction.

    actually, women do react to foreign material. I have known of one severe case in my lifetime. About 12 percent of women develop allergic symptoms severe enough to warrant doctor visits. usually, the symptoms are not severe, as the material is not retain for a prolonged period.

    Actually the woman's body does reject the sperm, that is one of the reasons why, of the millions of sperm in the ejaculate, only a few reach the ovum.
