Ovulation occurs when the ovarian follicles rupture and release the secondary oocyte ovarian cells. After the ovulation, during the luteal phase, the egg will be added, the uterine lining (endometrium) is thickened to be able to receive a fertilized egg.
Where conception does not occur, the uterine lining, as well as blood, will be shed during menstruation.
In simple terms, Ovulation is the release of mature eggs from the ovaries during the menstrual cycle.
The eggs move into the fallopian tube and wait for the sperm to fertilize it. Once it is fertilized, it travels and implants itself to develop into pregnancy. And if it is left unfertilized, the egg shed alongside the uterus lining during menstrual period.
