Pregnancy occurs when sperm from a man's penis reaches an egg released from a woman's ovary and fertillizes it.
This occurs during sexual intercourse.

In brief: Union of 2 gametes

Sperm from males and eggs or ova from females are gametes.
The union of sperm and egg creates a pregnancy. It can occur in a petri dish, fallopian tube, sometimes other parts of the female reproductive system.
