claudia - December 16

the maturation of the follicle that wins on will lead to ovulation and will cause an associated increase in your hormone oestrogen.


Portia - December 16

and of course, this will result to cause cervical mucus to become of more facilitating in the movement of sperm and will thicken and nourish the lining of the uterus.


zhiba - December 16

you know, fertility will increase throughout your follicular phase and to the most fertile time that will span up to 5 days before and 2 days after the ovulation.


mercy - December 16

how brilliant it is to produce a life and it is really magical as you can imagine how sperm and egg meets. :)


deborah - December 16

yes exactly! the egg can be fertilized for up to 48 hours after it leaves in the follicle and of course the sperm will able to survive in the body for about 3 and 7 days after it is being released.


sheena - December 16

ahh, that means the end of the follicular phase means that it marked on the ovulation.


epiphany - December 16

yeah right, and the released egg is ready to house the fallopian tube where it will be ready to be fertilized by the sperm.


belinda - December 16

the luteal phase which is the second phase of menstrual cycle will start by the end of the follicular phase.


bless - December 16

this phase plays a very important part of the menstrual cycle because of the key role of corpus luteum which the emptied dominant follicle that released egg.


lady - December 16

when the egg is already fertilized and implanted in the uterus, then the corpus luteum will have to continue to produce progesterone to be able to nourish the embryo until the development of the placenta begins and start on to the second trimester.


sylvia - December 16

what if the egg is not fertilized? what could happen?


ashley - December 16

if the egg is not fertilized and haven't been implanted, the corpus luteum will somehow disintegrate after like 2 weeks and when this happens this signals down for menstruation and to begin with a new cycle.


eureka - December 17

this phase remains constant that always lasts 15 days even if the luteal phase varies on from women and like this phase can happen between 12 and/or 16 days on the average.


chavie - December 17

oh, that is why if the egg is not fertilized then there will be no ovulation and the luteal phase will be considered as relatively infertile.


brandy - December 17

i guess there are so many ways to know if you are for ovulation or fertile but then it is just so hard to understand... :(


joy - December 17

yes you are right, there are really so many ways. if you get confused, you will have to chart the phases of your menstrual cycle to be able to help you predict your ovulation when it occurs.
