Where Does Meiosis 2 Occur in Females?

Meiosis II occurs in the secondary oocytes. Meiosis II is arrested at the metaphase II stage and is only completed after the penetration of sperm into the ovum. The second meiotic division is also an unequal division like meiosis I and results in the formation of the ootid and second polar bodies. The fertilisation occurs in the ampullary region of the fallopian tubes.
