Psycho-sexual development during pregnancy

 

Q. 15. Describe briefly the psycho-sexual development of human being in intra-uterine life?

Ans. Psycho-sexual development is basically dependent on bio-sexual development though both affect each other. The sperm and ovum are the half cells which constitute to form one celled zygote as the basic unit of sex life. It is some specialized somatic or body cells which have natural force to form the haploid sex cells. The body cells present in the gonads seem to have an innate tendency to form the sex cells. The sperms and ova have the desire to take part in fertilization for fulfilling the aim for which they have been formed. Sperms and ova are living but can exist for a short duration until they meet and fuse with each other to form the basic unit of zygote. The sperms and ova of an individual tend to compete with each other for ensuring their existence in the form of a new life. It is one of the healthiest and strongest sperm and ovum though not necessarily of the best quality, that fertilize. Nature has slightly favoured the fertilization by the lighter and active male Y sperm because human sex  male desires that not only his genes but also his superior gender should propagate. A man produces more than one thousand billion sperms in his life time so that at least a few coituses may be transformed into fertilization. It does not matter for a man or woman that which of his or her sperm or ova fulfils the role of fertilization though it is important for a particular sperm or ovum having fulfilled the role of springing into new life. A sperm or ovum has a bearing of all the bio-psycho-sexual disorders complexes of the life of man or woman as well as that of the life of his or her oncestors.

The zygote is a new life that wants to grow at all costs. Initially the zygote sustains by the nutrients it has in itself. When pregnancy has started, ovulation stops because the fresh ova intrinsically know that it is useless to leave the ovary because even if fertilization occurs, there is no place to grow and develop as the uterus is already occupied by a zygote. The interest of mother too lies in stoppage of ovulation during pregnancy and breast feeding. The foetus establishes its connection with the placenta for nourishment, respiration and excretion. The foetus has an intrinsic genetic make up acquired by both the parents but is environmentally influenced by the behaviour, desires, attitudes and interest of the mother. The sexual behaviour of the pregnant by surprise mother casts definite influence on the later sexual life of the foctus. When the foetus has grown to the extent of being capable of survival outside the womb of mother it leaves for onward journey called parturition and comes in a new unknown world as a neonate infant.
