Ovulation

• Each month, your ovaries select between 10 and 20 eggs to become possible candidates for release, also known as ovulation.

• During ovulation, the sac holding the egg, called the follicle, bursts open and the egg is released. In most cases, only one egg is released each month.

• In most cases, ovulation occurs about 14 days before the start of your next menstrual bleeding.

• Pregnancy can only occur if you have sexual intercourse during or near the time of ovulation.

• In contrast to a man, who produces new batches of sperm every 100 days, a woman is born with her lifetime supply of eggs.

• The human egg is about the size of a grain of sand and is the largest cell in the human body.
