15 Words Every Baby-Making Couple Should Know

When you're trying to conceive, sperm and egg aren't the only words you'll hear tossed around. From cervix to zygote, our primer in fertility lingo will help you (and your partner) understand the process -- and parlance -- of conception, so you can sound like a pro throughout your pregnancy.

Consider the cervix the door to your reproductive system. Once ejaculated, sperm travel from the vagina into the cervix, also known as the mouth of the uterus. From there, sperm move on their way through the uterus to the fallopian tubes where at least one sperm will (ideally) meet a healthy, mature egg for fertilization.
