What is Ovulation?
When an unfertilized egg from the ovary of a woman is released by travelling through the fallopian tubes and the uterus during the menstrual cycle, it is known as ovulation. If the released egg is fertilized by the sperm then you can get pregnant. It will occur generally 12-16 days before your next period starts.
Normally only one egg is released each time of ovulation and after leaving an ovary it generally lives between 12 to 24 hours. The released egg is then fertilized and is ready for implantation for 6-12 days before the process of ovulation. Even if your menstrual period has not occurred, there are chances that your ovulation cycle still may start. You must also know that your ovulation cycle may also get affected by some other problems.
