Facts You Didn’t Know About Ovulation

Ovulation is the fertile time of your menstrual cycle. It's when a mature egg (sometimes there's more than one) is released from your ovary, swept down the fallopian tube, and is available to be fertilised by a sperm. Which ovary releases the egg is anyone's guess - they don't necessarily take turns.

Here are some interesting facts about ovulation:

  • Time of ovulation can be affected by stress, illness or disruption of normal routines.

  • Implantation of a fertilised egg normally takes place 6-12 days after ovulation.

  • A woman is born with her lifetime quota of millions of immature eggs that are waiting for ovulation to begin.

  • A menstrual period may occur even if ovulation hasn't happened.

  • Ovulation can occur even if there's been no menstruation.

  • Some women feel ovulation pain or ache near the ovaries.

  • Some women have been known to ovulate during their period and at other odd times.
