What is ovulation and ovulation period?

Ovulation is the release of an egg (and sometimes more than just one) from the ovary which is pushed down the fallopian tube. This part of the menstrual cycle is the fertile time. It occurs periodically, each month around the 14th day in case of a regular 28-day menstrual cycle. Around this time, the egg is capable of being fertilized for 12 to 48 hours before it begins to disintegrate. Therefore your chances of conceiving are during these few hours the highest. If no conception occurs, the uterine lining together with the unfertilized egg and blood will be shed. This is the time of menstruation. Ovulation does not necessarily have to rotate between ovaries each cycle. The ovulation timing is very complex and you have to take some studying of your body and your cycles to figure it out. You can calculate your ovulation time by using a combination of various methods such as studying cervical fluid, tracking your periods, marking your body temperature, buying an ovulation predictor kit, listening to your body, etc.
