A. WHAT IS PREGNANCY?

Pregnancy is the result of the fertilization of the female ovum or egg by the male cell or sperm. Pregnancy is also the period from conception to birth. After the egg is fertilized by a sperm and then implanted in the lining of the uterus, it develops into the placenta and embryo, and later into a foetus. Pregnancy usually lasts 40 weeks, beginning from the first day of the woman’s last menstrual period, and is divided into three trimesters, each lasting three months. Pregnancy is that state or condition when a female carries a foetus in her womb for about nine months.

  A foetus is an unborn baby. The male sex cell is called Sperm. The female sex cell is called Ovum or Egg. It is produced in the ovary. The process of producing an ovum by the ovary is called Ovulation. If there is a sexual relationship or intercourse between a man and woman during the period the ovum is produced, the sperm will fertilize the ovum, which will result in pregnancy. If there is no sexual relationship during this period, the released ovum will die off in a day or two, and then menstruation occurs.
