This is a story of Romeo the Sperm and Juliet the egg. This is an exciting day for both Romero and Juliet because they will be going through a process of fertilization. Fertilization means when Romeo and Juliet fuse together and a new individual begins to form. Juliet has been waiting for this moment for 30 years since her egg was produced when Juliet was in the fetal ovaries along with 5 million others but today Juliet is the chosen one. Romeo feels like a million dollars because it is his day he was the only one out of 500 million sperm that will get fertilize. Romeo life begins in the seminiferous tubules inside the testicles where he has been maturing for about two months. Before the ejaculation process he moves to the epididymis waiting for the force to push him out through the urethra. In the urethra Romeo is mixed with a secretion from the prostate gland containing substances that facilitate his long journey to the female ovum or Juliet.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
