  20. Fertilization continued • Fertilization does not occur every time there is vaginal intercourse. • Egg stays in fallopian tube for 24 hours. • If sperm are present the egg can be fertilized. • If not no fertilization will take place • Menstruation will follow in about 14 days and the unfertilized egg leaves the body with unneeded blood and tissue.
