Fertilization is the action or process of fertilizing a female involving the fusion of male and female gametes to form a baby.  A gamete is either a sperm or an egg. These two gametes have to make a baby. A gamete is the last thing in the process of sexual cell reproduction. Sexual reproduction (Meiosis) is when two living things reproduce. Gametes have half the normal amount of DNA as a proper cell. If humans are not fertile (infertile) then they can not reproduce. They have to get some help from doctors. One of the ways to solve this problem is to have IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) when the egg is fertilized outside the woman and then put back. You could use this when the sperm are not mature enough to get all the way to the egg. this can be good and people do use this technique. The second way is to give the person pills, that can help his or her hormones be more mature so they can meet. This can happen when the sperm are not strong enough to go all the way to the egg. This is a good thing if you don’t mind of side effects, and the side affects are that you might have twins, triplets or even quadruplets.  Another way is to have surgical operations. This can happen when some part of the woman’s or ma’s reproductive system is not working well or not at all. This can cost a lot of money and sometimes when the doctor does his job bad, then he might even make it worse.
