How far up the vagina is the egg?

The egg, as in the human female reproductive cell, is very far up the vagina. In fact, it's all the way up the vagina, past the cervix, above the uterus, up the fallopian tube, and stored in one of two ovaries. When a woman begins puberty, she ovulates once a month. This means her ovaries release an egg and it travels down the fallopian tube and sits in the lining of the uterus. A few weeks later, if the egg has not been fertilized by a sperm, it is released down the vagina with the uterine lining (mostly blood) during the woman's menstruation.
