    In terms of size, think of an egg as a large spherical pizza. The sperm would be one very small meatball in that pizza.

    In terms of quantity, one egg is usually ovulated each month, and there are between 100-600 million sperm in each ejaculation.

    Now you think of the possible reasons.
