What is Ovulation



Ovulation is the time that describes the phases of the menstrual cycle “or” Ovulation is a stage that occurs during female’s periods. During that period ovarian release mature egg known as ovum. These ovarian follicles start maturing and developing with pituitary hormones in each menstrual cycle. In whole process only one follicle developed completely and rest of other becomes recede. This developed follicle produces egg that will be released and can be fertilized. The budding follicles start increasing the quantity of hormones estrogen. With rapid increases of estrogen flow of luteinizing hormone start. These hormones rush the release of mature egg from the follicle. This whole process is known as “Ovulation”.  

Ovulation Cycle:

As discuss earlier that ovulation is the event that takes place during menstrual cycle. It has different phases or cycle. The phase before the ovulation is known as follicles stage, at that stage ovarian follicles start developing. This follicle phase also known as preovulatory phase. After that second phase is called Luteal phase also known as postovulatory phase.. The length of first phase may vary but second phase remain constant from period to period for the same woman. Some time ovulation cycle becomes irregular because of its early or later happening.

When does Ovulation take place?

Research shows ovulation take place two weeks or 10-16 days before women periods. But it can be vary due to length of luteal phase. An average estimated periods of 28 day cycle, it usually happen between the periods 13-15 days.  A study by American Society for Reproductive Medicine argued that menstrual cycle commonly happen from day 21 to 35 days. Some time it may be longer or shorter.

Example: Most often women got their ovulation phase from 23rd day of cycle that may be long 3 days with 12 day luteal phase; on the other hand it may occur on cycle day 10 for a woman with 14day luteal phase length in 24 day cycle. This all variations show that there is no fix date or time and formula that can calculate your ovulation time.  But with fertility signals we can learn about it easily.

Fertilization of egg must start within this time frame i.e. 12 to 24 hours, after that egg becomes degenerate and los capacity to become fertilized. This lifespan time is too short but sperm drop earlier to ovulation and can survive for few days in female reproductive territory.
