A womanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s fertility is extremely critical. Keeping close track of your fertility window increases the chances of pregnancy. Starting at puberty, every woman undergoes a monthly cycle of ovulation. The processes of ovulation and menstruation that take place in woman is called a menstrual cycle.
During the foetus stage, the ovaries of the female reproductive system contain about one to two million eggs. During puberty, the triggering of hormone production results in the maturation of theses eggs. As ovulation approaches, the ovary is pulled to a position of closer proximity to fallopian tube allowing the egg to be released and find its way to uterus tube. The egg present within the tube is viable for 24 hours.
If intercourse takes place within five days of ovulation, the chances of being pregnant are likely to be high. The sperm from your partner moves towards the uterus tubes of the woman where the egg is present. Fertilization takes place resulting in the formation of an embryo. The embryo is then placed on to the womb lining and is nourished with rich blood supply and divides constantly thereafter. One week after, fertilization occurs the body naturally produces the pregnancy hormone, Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin (hCG) that protects embryo, by keeping the empty follicle alive. hCG hormone aids in the correct diagnosis of pregnancy. The ovulation occurs usually 14 to 15 days after the menstrual cycle is completed, depending on the length of your menstrual cycle. Therefore, it is very necessary to keep track of your fertile window to ascertain pregnancy. If you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know your ovulation period or if you are facing problems with irregular menstruation, speak with your doctor.
