Read on to figure out what has been going on there!
Every month, your body always prepares for a probable pregnancy by releasing follicles that stimulate hormone, which causes the eggs to mature in separate follicles based in your ovaries. And each follicle actually does produce estrogen, the hormone that should reach a specific level for ovulation to happen. When you are getting enough estrogen that was produced, it is mostly from 12 to 18 days after your cycle starts, an opened egg, that is smaller than the pin head comes out from the oldest follicles. It call the launch of the egg by ovulation.
How Ovulation Happens
The loads of estrogen built up in your follicles work on a surge of a 3rd hormone, called luteinizing hormone. In the upcoming 24 hours of your LH surge, the egg mixes from their follicles and is right away moved into the fallopian tubes. In the meantime, the empty follicles that known as the corpus luteum; start to produce one more other hormone which is progesterone, it does prevent the release of other eggs for the period of the cycle. The corpus luteum usually works for 12 to 16 days, and that’s after your progesterone level drops and the cycle starts again.
Almost a 5% of women go through lower abdominal pain, and that happens when ovulation begins. Tender breasts or feeling a discomfort are pretty common. Usually, most women have a vaginal discharge that could be clear and somehow elastic in the days close to ovulation.
The Egg State After Ovulation
It all depends on either fertilization happens or not. If it fertilize the egg in the few hours of the release, it will be spending the next week or 2 traveling throughout your fallopian tubes to your uterus, where it will slide into the uterine lining and start the incredible process of being developed to a baby. If the egg was not fertilized, it will leave after around 12 to 24 hours. So either it will get reabsorbed into your body, or going to just pass with the monthly menstrual flow.
