Women are typically born with two ovaries and two fallopian tubes.

Women are typically born with two ovaries and two fallopian tubes. When she reaches puberty her eggs will begin being released. Every month one egg is released. The ovary that it is released from is completely random. It will then travel through one of the fallopian tubes and into the uterus. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

While the egg is in the uterus, it will have the chance to come in contact with sperm. If the sperm fertilizes the egg, it will attempt to attach to the uterine lining, causing the woman to become pregnant. If the egg is not fertilized, it will die and the lining will be shed, which will start the woman’s monthly period.

For women who only have one ovary and one fallopian tube, the task of becoming pregnant is difficult. However, it is not completely impossible. Since the release is random, the woman may find that she ovulates every other month or less frequently. Some women may even find that they ovulate every month because the ovary releases an egg every month.
