What They Call “Conception” !

 

Pregnancy may be an ordinary occurrence to some people. We see women with bulging bellies, hardly able to walk straight, almost everywhere, on a daily basis. Most often, pregnancy is viewed as a consequence rather than a gift.

Few people realize what a miracle transpires once a woman becomes pregnant. Science can explain what the mechanics are, but if fully grasped, no amount of scientific explanation can entirely illuminate the real marvel of this experience.

As the girl’s body matures, her reproductive organ initiates a process called ovulation. This is when her ovaries start to release egg that is waiting to be fertilized. On most women, this happens on a monthly basis. During sexual intercourse and upon ejaculation by a man, millions of spermatozoa are released through the penis and finally to the female’s vagina where the egg sit silently, waiting to be fertilized.

Once these sperms are released, only the strongest and the fastest will be able to reach the egg; the first to reach the egg becomes the sole survivor. This sperm will enter an opening and penetrates the egg. Once it enters the egg, the sperm will lose its tail and its head will enlarge, the egg will start to enlarge as well. As this meeting happens, conception begins. The egg is now ready. It will implant itself to the uterus and if all goes well–a new being is going to happen.

As tedious as it may seem, this process roughly takes only 5-10 minutes—that is when it becomes a wonder. A most complex being, humans that is—only takes 10 minutes to generate. Cooking rice and washing dishes seems to take longer. And the best part is, as it happens, it never really occurred to anyone that it is happening. The process is so muted that even the bodies involved are not aware that a creation is about to begin or is already happening. Only when symptoms and pregnancy signs begins (usually after a month or so), that they realized they have finally conceived.
