What Is Ovulation? | Live Science

Ovulation is the release of an egg from one of a woman’s ovaries. After the egg is released, it moves down the fallopian tube, where fertilization by a sperm cell can take place.

Ovulation usually lasts one day and occurs in the middle of a woman’s menstrual cycle, about two weeks before she expects to have her period. But the timing of the process differs for each woman, and it may even differ from month to month.
