Some women begin dilating at 36 weeks and go to 41 weeks before they finally go into labor at 7 centimeters.

When your fallopian tubes are blocked the eggs that don't reach the womb are simply absorbed by the body.
If your fallopian tubes are completely blocked, an egg cannot travel through them to your womb.
You will need to be treated by a fertility specialist to become pregnant. Your doctor may occasionally be able to open the tubes with surgery.
If the egg isn't fertilized, it's simply reabsorbed by the body — perhaps before it even reaches the uterus.
About two weeks later, the lining of the uterus sheds through the vagina. This is known as menstruation.
Sperm can sometimes get stuck in fallopian tubes and a blockage in the fallopian tubes can cause a fertilized egg to get stuck as well.
If a fallopian tube is blocked, the passage for sperm to get to the eggs, as well as the path back to the uterus for the fertilized egg, is blocked.
Common reasons for blocked fallopian tubes include scar tissue, infection, and pelvic adhesions.
The fallopian tubes are bilateral conduits between the ovaries and the uterus in the female pelvis.
They function as channels for oocyte transport and fertilization.
Given this role, the fallopian tubes are a common etiology of infertility as well as the target of purposeful surgical sterilization.
The 4 causes of female infertility are.

Problems in the Menstrual Cycle.
Structural Problems of the Reproductive System.
Female infertility is an inability to get pregnant and have a successful pregnancy.
The female infertility is typically diagnosed after a woman has tried to get pregnant (through unprotected sex) for 12 months without a pregnancy.
The most common cause of female infertility is Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition in which the ovaries produce an abnormal amount of androgens, male sex hormones that are usually present in women in small amounts.
The name polycystic ovary syndrome describes the numerous small cysts (fluid-filled sacs) that form in the ovaries.
The cause of polycystic ovary syndrome isn't well understood, but may involve a combination of genetic and environmental factors.
Symptoms include menstrual irregularity, excess hair growth, acne, and obesity.
Treatments include birth control pills to regularize periods, a medication called metformin to prevent diabetes, statins to control high cholesterol, hormones to increase fertility, and procedures to remove excess hair.
