obviously i'm still in school and have many health lessons throughout the week but i still am not completely sure what ovulation is, I've heard many things about it (happens on the 14th day of a normal 28 cycle, & when you are most vulnerable for pregnancy etc.) but i would just like to clear up my confusion.

Hi Alina

Thanks for your post!

Ovulation is the act of a woman’s body releasing a mature egg from her ovary. The egg then travels through the fallopian tube into her uterus and is available to be fertilized. For most women, one egg matures within one of their two ovaries each month.

During ovulation, the lining of the uterus thickens to prepare for a possible fertilized egg. If the egg does not get fertilized, no conception occurs, and the thick uterine lining and blood is shed through menstruation. The cycle then repeats itself the next month until a woman is pregnant, enters menopause, or takes birth control that interrupts the typical ovulation cycle.
