KNOWING ABOUT HOW PREGNANCY OCCURS
This occurs when semen is deposited into the vagina during sexual intercourse, the sperm in the semen swim into the womb then into the fallopian tubes (egg channels), meet an egg in this tube and one of the sperms enters the egg to cause fertilization (fusion). The fertilized egg then undergoes several divisions as it moves into the inside of the womb (uterine cavity), develops and grows into a baby.
This means for natural conception to occur, the following conditions must be met:
- The male partner must be able to produce normal motile sperms in good quantity, must be able to have sexual intercourse to deposit the semen into the vagina.
- The female must have open vagina, a womb with good cavity (inside) and lining , patent fallopian tubes (open throughout the whole length), and able to produce and release eggs (ovulation). These eggs must be of good quality.
A normal female who has regular menstruation usually produces one egg every month.
Every normal female has one vagina, one womb, two fallopian tubes, and two ovaries.
