Here’s a primer on conception


Each month inside your ovaries, a group of eggs starts to grow in small, fluid-filled sacs called follicles. Eventually, one of the eggs erupts from the follicle (ovulation).

It usually happens about 2 weeks before your next period.

Hormones Rise

After the egg leaves the follicle, the follicle develops into something called the corpus luteum.

The Egg Travels to the Fallopian Tube
After the egg is released, it moves into the fallopian tube.

If the Egg Isn’t Fertilized

If no sperm is around to fertilize the egg, it moves through the uterus and disintegrates. Y


If one sperm does make its way into the fallopian tube and burrows into the egg, it fertilizes the egg.

At the instant of fertilization, your baby’s genes and sex are set. If the sperm has a Y chromosome, your baby will be a boy. If it has an X chromosome, the baby will be a girl.

Implantation: Moving to the Uterus

The egg stays in the fallopian tube for about 3 to 4 days.

Some women notice spotting (or slight bleeding) for 1 or 2 days around the time of implantation.

The lining of the uterus gets thicker and the cervix is sealed by a plug of mucus.

It will stay in place until the baby is ready to be born.
