Where does fertilization usually take place?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 11/29/2018

It is commonly believed that fertilization occurs in the uterus, but it actually does not. In particular, fertilization occurs in the Fallopian tubes, which are the oviducts that connect both ovaries (where egg cells are produced) with the uterus (where pregnancy develops).
