Once a month an ovary releases 1 egg into the fallopian tube.

Step 2: Intercourse

The penis enters the vagina and semen, containing sperm, is ejaculated into the vagina.

Step 3: Fertilization

A sperm connects with the egg in the fallopian tube.

Step 4: Implantation

The fertilized egg implants into the uterus and spends about 9 months growing into a baby.
