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.
