The act of conceiving in the womb; the initiation of an embryonic animal life.
The state of being conceived; beginning.
The union of the sperm (male) and egg (female). Some believe this is the moment when life begins.
When the sperm fertilizes the ovum.
Event occurring when the egg is fertilized by a sperm cell.
Conception or fertilisation is the moment when sperm and egg meet, join and form a single cell. It usually takes place in the Fallopian tubes. The fertilised egg then travels into the uterus, where it implants in the lining before developing into an embryo and then a fetus.
Fertilization. The union of sperm and egg.
another word for fertilisation.
The moment when the woman's egg is fertilised by a man's sperm, and she becomes pregnant.
Creation of a zygote by the fertilization of an egg by a sperm.
The union of sperm and egg cells resulting in a zygote or fertilized egg. Identical to the term "fertilization". Deliberately and inaccurately "redefined" by the American Medical Association to mean the implantation of the zygote in the uterine wall several days after fertilization in order to loosen moral strictures against actions that might damage or destroy human zygotes and embryos.
the formation of a zygote, the single-cell product of fertilization, that is capable of survival, development, and maturation
Fertilization or penetration of the ovum by a sperm cell.
The fertilisation of the egg by the sperm and its implantation in the uterine wall.
The act of becoming pregnant. Traditionally, the fertilisation of the egg (the oocyte) by a sperm (the spermatozoon) and the beginning of the growth of the embryo [Butterworths Medical Dictionary]. Since the advent of in vitro fertilisation, conception is said to have occurred only if the conceptus has undergone successful implantation, as evidenced by a positive pregnancy test. See also conception rate and pregnancy.
when a sperm and egg unite, resulting in an embryo or fetus.
when a sperm fertilizes an egg.
The beginning of pregnancy, when the sperm cell from the father joins with the egg cell from the mother.
(Hapai) Impregnation of the ovum.
the union of an egg and a sperm that forms a cell capable of surviving and maturing, which results in pregnancy
The joining together of the egg and sperm through to implantation.
the union of the male's sperm and the female's ovum, or egg. This is the process of fertilisation. The product of this union is a cell called the zygote.
Beginning of pregnancy, when the male sperm fertilizes the female egg.
A synonym for "fertilization."
F the moment at which an ovum is fertilized by a sperm and beings to grow; the beginning of a pregnancy.
Uniting of the sperm and the egg.
CONCEPTION is the moment that a man's sperm successfully fertilizes a woman's egg. The sperm and egg fuse to form a ZYGOTE, which will eventually grow into an EMBRYO and then a FETUS.
The fertilization of the egg and beginning of growth of the embryo inside the mare's body.
When the egg is available for fertilization and 350 million sperm is released inside or near the woman's vaginal area, about 200 sperm will reach the egg. Of those 200 sperm, only one will actually penetrate the egg, thus causing conception.
The act of conceiving or becoming pregnant and the fertilization of the ovum takes place.
beginning of a new human life when a sperm and an ovum unite; the moment when pregnancy begins; fertilization.
The fertilization of the ovum (egg). The act of conceiving or becoming pregnant.

The fertilization of a woman's egg by a man's sperm resulting in a new life.
kon- sep'shun] (fertilization) - The moment when a woman's egg (ovum) and a man's sperm join and begin to divide and grow. If uninterrupted, these cells will grow into an embryo, then a fetus, and after nine months will become a full - term baby.
The fertilization of a woman's egg by a man's sperm to form a zygote.
Conception is the fertilization of the ovum by the sperm, and it's implantation in the wall of the uterus. See BabyPartner Diary Week 2 for more detail.
The beginning of a pregnancy marked by the fertilization of an egg by a sperm cell.
Fertilization; when the sperm meets and penetrates the egg
when a sperm fertilises an egg to form an embryo.
When a sperm and egg join to form a single cell, usually in the Fallopiantubes. After joining, the fertilized egg travels into the uterus, where itimplants in the lining on its way to growing into an embryo and then a fetus.
Conception occurs when a sperm and an egg join to form a single cell. It usually takes place in the Fallopian tubes. The fertilised egg then travels into the uterus, where it implants in the lining before developing into an embryo and then a foetus.
Fusion of the sperm and the egg cell.
Fertilization of the egg or ovum by the sperm, resulting in an embryo. To "settle."
The successful union of a sperm and an ovum.
the uniting of a sperm and egg.
The fertilization of an ovum or the act of becoming pregnant.
The moment when the sperm enters the ovum (egg), fertilizing it, and forming a viable zygote (a healthy fertilized egg).
the fertilization and implantation of an egg, which marks the beginning of pregnancy.
The union of the female ovum (egg) with the male sperm; often used synonymously with " fertilization".
The fertilisation of an egg.
The fertilization of an egg by sperm that leads to the creation of an embryo. Also used to describe the start of pregnancy, marked by the implantation of the embryo into the uterine lining.
The point at which the husband's sperm unites with the wife's egg, causing life to begin.
In mammals, conception is the fertilization of an egg cell by a sperm cell.
In reproduction, conception is the point at which a sperm fertilizes an egg.
