ÊA female ovary normally releaseÊ an egg during ovulation. The egg moves to fallopian tube and stays there forÊ 24 hrs, waiting for fertilization (when spermÊ is aroundÊ it is fertilized or otherwise it disintegrates). After fertilization, the egg(zygote) stays for 3-4 days in the fallopian tube while dividing rapidly into multiple cells, as it move through the fallopian tube to the uterus and get implanted on the uterus wall. The zygote then develop into embryo and later into fetus.
