When does a pregnancy begin
Q:When does pregnancy begin?
A: A pregnancy usually begins when a sperm fertilizes an egg (fertilization), and the egg subsequently implants in the uterus (conception or implantation).
The beginning of the pregnancy is usually calculated as starting from the first day of your last menstrual period. You can create your own personbal pregnancy timetable HERE.
