“Sperm swim straighter and move towards the egg when they are exposed to the chemical signals.

The researchers arrived at that conclusion after studying samples of sperm and follicular fluid from couples undergoing infertility treatment.
It turned out that follicular fluid from any one woman was better at attracting sperm from certain men, versus others.
