It takes place during the menstrual cycle, and the process is called ovulation. (Another name for the fertilized egg is a 'zygote') Ovulation is not a fertilized egg. Ovulation is the release of an unfertilized egg. The fertilized egg implants about 6-8 days after ovulation

Where is the egg in a female developed fertilized and where does the fertilized egg develop?

An egg gets fertilized in the fallopian tube by a sperm, then it goes inside of the uterus, and inside the uterus it develops.

What does a period have to do with pregnancy?

A period is the term used for the layers of skin to shed from the uterus. The uterus is where the egg will be implanted and cells divide to form a fetus. Every month (in most cases) a woman releases an egg from her ovaries and it travels down the fallopian tubes to the uterus. If the egg is not fertilized by sperm from a male, it will be shed along with the lining of the uterus. If the egg is fertilized, then it will implant itself into the lining of the uterus to develop into a fetus, thus causing the stop of a period during pregnancy.

How does the uterus change during the menstrual cycle?

The uterus prepares for the arrival of a fertilized egg.

What is the path of an unfertilized egg from a follicle until it leaves the body?

Once the follicle erupts and the egg escapes, it enters the fallopian tube. Cilia on the lining of the fallopian tubes push the egg along on it's way to the uterus. If the egg is fertilized while on its way to the uterus, it implants in the endometrium when it reaches the uterus. If it is not fertilized, it is shed in the monthly menstruation cycle.

What does it mean if your uterus lining is thick but you are not pregnant?

Premenstrually the lining thickens and is later shed if there is no fertilized egg to implant into the lining. A hormonal imbalance, infection or endometriosis can all cause a thickening of the lining, irregularly during your cycle.
