Random Fertilization And Crossing Over
Chilectomy 6/4/12 (toes 2&3) & now they float & point out, causing discomfort-crossing over #4. I've already seen a 2nd dr who suggests waiting. ?

My big toe is crossing over my second toe. I got told this may be a bunion. I am only 17. I experience no pain from it. Do i need a surgery?
Think it Over.: Your description certainly sounds like a bunion to me. Whether or not you have it removed is entirely up to you. The usual reasons include pain, either with or without shoes.

My advice is to have them removed when you are ready and well informed. ...Read more

Union of sperm/egg: Fertilization is union of the sperm and egg. At fertilization, many sperm bind to the covering of the egg, the zone pellucida. At the zona, sperm become hyperactive, whipping tails back and forth, and literally drill into the egg. Once one sperm enters the egg, the egg immediately closes access to any other sperm. Egg and sperm dna combine, and cell division begins. ...Read more
