Ovulation is a part of a female’s menstrual cycle. It usually occurs when the egg is released from the person’s ovary. When the said egg is released from the ovary, it may or may not be fertilized by the sperm. If it is, the egg travels to the uterus and implants itself there to develop into a pregnancy. If it is left unfertilized, the egg disintegrates and the preparatory uterine lining is shed during the period. Ovulation starts with the release of the FSH “Follicle Stimulating Hormone” in your body. This also usually occurs between 6 and 14 days of your regular menstrual cycle. Ovulation can cause an uptick in vaginal discharge. Light bleeding or spotting, Breast tenderness, Increased sexual drive, Ovary pain characterized by discomfort or pain on one side of the abdomen.
