What is ovulation?

Ovulation is a term used to describe how eggs are discharged from the ovarian follicle during the woman's cycle. When the egg (or in some rare cases eggs) is released from the ovarian follicle, it is ready to be fertilized by a sperm cell. Ovulation happens after the lh surge, which occurs around two weeks after the first menstrual day.
