This medical illustration shows fertilization (conception) and capacitation, the moment in which a single sperm cell and an egg (oocyte) unite, marking the beginning of a human life. This process typically occurs in the fallopian (uterine) tube. Afterward, the fertilized egg is transported to the uterus where it continues growing during a normal pregnancy.
