Menstruation is the shedding of tissue and blood from the lining of the womb that occurs at the beginning of menstrual cycle.

Menstrual cycle is the series of changes a woman's body goes through to prepare for a pregnancy.

Ovulation is a part of menstrual cycle when a mature egg is released from the ovary, pushed down the fallopian tube and is available to be fertilized.

If you have intercourse during ovulation you can get pregnant. So, fertilization means that sperm has gotten to and entered the mature egg.
