Triplets are made when a woman releases two eggs from her ovaries. Both of them get fertilized by sperm, but one splits into two, creating identical twins. The other fertilized egg travels down the Fallopian tube, with the two other fertilized eggs to implant into the uterine lining.


The mans family history has nothing to do with twins or no twins....twins occur when a) the woman releases two mature eggs and they both get fertilized by two sperm or b) one mature egg is fertilized by one sperm and then that fertilized egg splits. One thing the man does contribute is the sex of the baby. A babies sex is solely determined by the father....not the mother.



A fertilized egg does not "split" into a man or a woman egg. The sex of the fertilized egg is determined by the chromosomes in the sperm that fertilizes the egg. Some sperm have X chromosomes, and some sperm have Y chromosomes. All eggs are X. If the sperm is a Y, the baby will be an XY, or a boy, if the sperm is an X, the baby will be an XX, or a girl. On rare occasion, a fertilized egg does split, but in that case, it will be twins or other multiples of the same sex.


If the man gave the semen sample by masturbating, it's called IUI. If the sperm was removed surgically, that removal procedure is called MESA. Then a sperm is injected through an egg removed in an egg retrieval via a process called ICSI, and the fertilized embryo is put into the woman. That process as a whole is called IVF, but IVF doesn't always include ICSI.


Either the egg splits in half after fertilization (identical) or the woman releases two eggs which are both fertilized (fraternal).


It is part if the reproductive cycle, and it is in this part of the cycle in which sperm and egg can combine to make a zygote or fertilized egg.


There are two ways a woman can have twins. One way is that a woman releases two eggs when she ovulates. When her and her partner have sex, both of the eggs become fertilized. The other way is after a woman has sex and the egg is fertilized, it divides in half. When the egg divides in half, this is when you get identical twins.


It sheds and is expelled from the body. This process is known as menstruation or a period and happens on average every 28 days from the time a woman first releases an egg during puberty until menopause.


women get fertilized after sex because i takes awhile for sperm to get to the egg and then implant in the uterus.


No, your egg needs to be fertilized by a sperm; something a woman do not produce :)No. Men and women were specifically designed to make children...the men have the sperm, and the women eggs. There is no possible way for girls to make girls pregnant.they will hav to adopt


When a woman is ovulating it means that her ovarian tubes are preparing to send the egg down to her uterus to be fertilized by a sperm cell. However, if this doesnt happen, we have our periods to flush it out.


Short Answer:If the sperm is from a healthy individual there should be no Ill effects from it.More than you really wanted to know!Sperm is the cause of the Human body, we are made when a man & a woman have sex & the male ejaculates sperm inside a woman & the egg is fertilized, so with out the sperm there would be no you or me!Sperm is natural and a part of life. if you get it on your skin, it isn't an irritant or corrosive. If consumed it contains proteins & sugars & no bad effect.


Normally, a woman normally releases ONE egg per menstrual cycle. On occasion, a woman will release two, which would result in fraternal twins if both eggs are fertilized.


Twins from different eggs are fraternal twins. They are siblings with the same birthdate. They are twins, but not identical, and can even be girl and boy. It is the same process taking place as a single child that a woman becomes pregnant with, but the process happens with two children at the same time. The woman releases two eggs that month instead of one, and they both are fertilized. That is how this type of twin is produced.


uhhhh..... no. the only way for a woman to get pregnant is for one of her eggs to get fertilized by sperm cells (which can only happen from sex or artificial insemination)


Sperm gets into a woman through her vagina.


releases one of the more than 400,000 eggs that are stored in her ovaries, and the lining of the womb (uterus) thickens in anticipation of receiving a fertilized egg. If the egg is not fertilized, progesterone levels drop and the uterine lining sheds


It goes to the usual place, but there is no egg ready and waiting there to be fertilized by it. Ovulation stops when you are pregnant. That's why you don't have your period.


It not only Hurts the Women Stuck by the 9” knot but also shoots dog sperm into her uterus impregnating the Human for a Short time before aborting the women’s egg the Doggie Sperm fertilized.


there is the formation of the inner lining (made of blood and mucus) in the uterus, then the release of a egg, then if it is not fertilized, the woman releases hormones, making the lining come out, and that's when you have your period.


This process is called menstruation and begins happening to girls when they reach puberty...... what happens is the egg in a woman gets connected to the wall of the uterus where it is cuishoned by the blood and tissue.... if the egg is not fertilized by a man sperm cell it has to leave the body every month...... this process is called menstruation


Well technically yes because you need a man's sperm to make a baby.But twins occur in only two ways....1) the mother's fallopian tubes releases two eggs instead of one and both get fertilized--this creates fraternal twins--this is in the mother's genetics, some woman have looser or wider fallopian tubes so multiple eggs are released2) the mother releases one egg and after becoming fertilized it splits--this creates identical twins--this is a seemingly random act, the cause of an egg splitting has not been determinedSo twins are caused by woman.


When a woman and a man are sexually active, the man inserts his penis into the woman's vagina, then his sperm will come out. His sperm will then travel to the woman's eggs and may "fertilize" one of them. That "fertilized" egg will move into the womb and grow into a fetus, or unborn baby. After about 9 months of pregnancy, the woman will give birth to the baby. Sometimes more than one egg is fertilized, or the fertilized egg may divide before it goes to the womb. This results in multiple births : twins, triplets, or possibly more.


No, 80 fertilized eggs are not flushed away during mestruation. If an egg is actually fertilized by a sperm cell, it will embed itself and grow in the woman's uterus while developing into a baby. This is why a woman will not get her period if she is pregnant. The reason a woman experiences menstraution is because the egg her ovary released was not fertilized and the lining of her uterus (which would have been the "home" for the fertilized egg) is not needed. This lining (mostly blood) and the unfertilized egg are shed during menstruation.Therefore, every "period" a woman has represents at least one unfertilized egg being discarded by the body. During a woman's life, she will have around 450 periods. However, a woman is born with up to 500,000 eggs, and the 450 periods she has represent only a fraction of her eggs that achieved maturity (meaning mature enough to be fertilized), a process controlled by hormones.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Actually the above answer is not true. It is completely possible for a woman's body to rinse out fertilized eggs via her period.Ovulation occurs at the halfway point during a woman's menstrual cycle. The average cycle is 28 days, so average ovulation is day 14. Ovulation is when the body releases one egg to be fertilized. Since sperm can live in the cervix up to 5 days, it's possible for a woman to get pregnant when she isn't ovulating.Once an egg is fertilized in the fallopian tubes, it has to travel to the uterus. It can take 5-10 days for this to happen. Because many women can start their periods while this process is taking place, and most due, it flushes the fertilized eggs out of the body onto sanitary napkins. Because it's impossible for scientists to determine how often this happens, it's estimated between 60 and 80 percent of fertilized eggs.What stops the woman's period is the fertilized egg that has entered the uterus. That is when pregnancy officially begins---------------------------------------------------------------------------The second answer is more likely to be right because George Carlin uses that fact when he is debating about abortion.
