What is ovulation?

What is ovulation?

Ovulation occurs when your ovary releases a mature egg that travels down to the fallopian tube where it can be fertilised with a sperm. If fertilisation happens, the egg can travel to the uterus and implant itself to develop into a pregnancy. The day of ovulation and 5 days beforehand are considered your fertile window. 

 

The egg can be fertilised within 12-24 hours after being released while a sperm can live in the reproductive tract for nearly 5 days. 

In an average menstrual cycle of nearly 28 days, ovulation occurs around 14 days before the next cycle. However, most women experience ovulation nearly 4 days before or after the midpoint of their menstrual cycle.
