14 days after your particular period cycle egg is released from one of your ovaries. This egg travels through the Fallopian tube. This process is called ovulation. Then the egg takes about 12 to 24 hrs, to reach to the uterus. This is called the wait period.  During ejaculation, millions of sperms enter through vagina. But, out of these only a few hundreds survive to reach the egg inside the Fallopian tube. One of these sperms penetrates the waiting egg. This process is called conception. Now the woman is two weeks pregnant.



The fertilized egg is called a zygote. The zygote keeps on multiplying. It slips through the Fallopian tubes and enters the uterus. In uterus it embeds itself into the walls of uterus to gain nutrition and starts developing. And this entire process is conception: the beginning of new life.
