It has certainly been a wild adventure on my way to the infundibulum, which serves as the outer component of a female’s fallopian tube (Nevid, Rathus & Fichner- Rathus, 2005). My name is ‘Egg’. In fact, all of my siblings share the same exact name! I am anxiously awaiting my friends to arrive. They are all named ‘Sperm’ and are considered to be male germ cells. It has been quite a long time since I last saw them. I have been preparing for their arrival for quite some time and cannot wait to see them! It was a daunting task to be here in the first place. The ovary in which I live near had roughly 400,000 other eggs; however, when she was younger, she experienced puberty; as a result, only 1% of us made it to transformed into ripened ova. I am finally able to be the ova responsible for suppressing the development of additional ova in order to be discharged during the ovulation period (Nevid, Rathus, et al., 2005). As soon as I made my journey away from the ovary, I travelled all of the way to the fallopian tube. I am now still in the fallopian tube waiting for my friends to come over.

    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.
