Have you ever been asked by a child where babies come from and just stared back at them with wide eyes not knowing what to say? Don't worry, we've all been there. But it's time to put an end to the confusion once and for all. In this article, we will explore the age-old question of "what hole do babies come from?".
Let's Start With Some Basic Anatomy
Before we dive right into answering the question, let's first take a moment to discuss some basic female anatomy. Women have two main openings in their genital area; the urethra and the vagina. Semen is ejaculated through a man's penis during sex and travels up through the vagina, entering into the cervix which leads up towards the uterus.
Yes indeed! The uterus is where fertilized eggs implant themselves and develop into fetuses until they are ready for birth. Once everything is good to go, the uterus contracts pushing out the baby.
How Exactly Does Conception Happen?
Now that we understand some basic anatomy let's discuss how conception happens in humans.
Ovulation And Fertilization
A woman typically releases one egg per menstrual cycle - this process is called ovulation Remember that semen enters inside of her body via intercourse or any other sexual activity (we're talking about something more fun than getting inseminated at your local animal shelter here). If any sperm meets with an egg (sometimes there can be multiple eggs) then that equals S-E-X-U-A-L I-N-T-E-R-C-O-U-R-S-E! And ta-dah!!! A fertilised embryo has started its development journey!!!
So All That Action Takes Place Inside Of The Vagina Right..Like There’s Another Hole They’re Using To Produce A Baby?
Nope, sorry to disappoint. Even if you may hear ultra-religious blokes share this theory every now and again where they staunchly believe that babies get made via the anus or that tampons knock up chics... No sir-ree! The process of conception happens inside the uterus, therefore the vagina is just a passageway for sperm. Think of it like an airport terminal; millions of sperm are dropped off (by 'hayfever' in this situation) at the check-in counters with their valid tickets but only one will win all-expenses-paid trip to... well… be absorbed we suppose.
C-section Vs Vaginal Birth
So whether a woman delivers naturally through the birth canal or via c-section surgery, rest assured that the baby still came out through the vagina, yep - even when she had both feet on stirrups pushing like her life depended on it vs being strapped to some surgical table being cut open by obstetricians wearing masks looking akin to Doc Brown from Back To The Future fame.
The answer then, for those seeking clarity: What hole do babies come from? They actually don't come out of any 'hole' per say...but rather make their grand appearance into this world quite neatly packaged inside another organ known as “THE UTERUS.” So there you have it folks; It's not as complicated nor does it involve any faux-holes as many would think. Instead, let's keep things simple – because biology can already be a hard nut to crack. This article has given us insight into just how unique our anatomy truly is & hopefully begins solidifying your understanding behind what sets humans apart from any other living organisms in past/present/future existence .
