It takes a village to raise a child…and to fertilize an egg!

Human conception begins when a single sperm penetrates the ova, however; the breakthrough moment would not be possible without an entire team of tiny swimmers! When sperm find an egg in the fallopian tube, they surround it and release an enzyme which break down the egg’s outer membrane, eventually allowing one triumphant little tadpole to wiggle through.

Now, that’s what I call teamwork!
