birth control.

methods of birth control include
1. male condom.

- it can prevent STDs from spreading as well, and stops unwanted pregnancies.

2. diaphragm.

- it can prevent STDs from spreading as well, and stops unwanted pregnancies.

3. birth control pills.

- it is easy to take, and not uncomfortable.
- but it may have other side effects after prolonged use.

4. female condom.
- to stop sperms from coming into contact with egg.
- it can prevent STDs from spreading as well, and stops unwanted pregnancies.

5. lubricant.
- sperms are sensitive to liquids with low pH values, therefore, the lubricant destroys them.

6. spermicide.
- it is a substance inserted into the vagina to kill sperms.
menstruation & fertilisation.
- / 12:28 AM.

menstruation.


when menstruation occurs, the unwanted egg dissolves, and the lining on the uterus wall is shed.

fertilisation.

however, if sexual intercourse were to take place within 48 hours of the release of the egg, the egg might be fertilised. only ONE sperm will succeed in entering the egg, while a barrier will be formed to block out other sperms. the head will break off from the sperm, and its nucleus will fuse with the egg's nucleus.

both the sperm and egg have 23 chromosones, which contain genes that decide on how you look like, your height, and other features of your body.
