OVULATION; Pregnancy and Menstruation.
Ovulation is the release of an egg from your ovary, into your Fallopian tube. It typically happens about 13-15 days before the start of each period. Just like a woman’s monthly period, the timing of ovulation can vary from cycle to cycle and you may have the odd cycle when you don’t ovulate at all.
Towards the end of puberty, you start having periods. Having a period means losing some blood through your vagina approximately once a month. When puberty is reached, the ovaries start producing estrogen and progesterone. Oestrogen and progesterone make the lining of the womb get thicker once a month and ready for getting pregnant.
Meanwhile, there are hormones also signaling the ovaries to produce and release an unfertilized egg. In most women, this happens once every 28 days or so. The idea is No FERTILIZATION equals GETTING YOUR PERIOD.
This means, if you don’t have sexual intercourse around the time of your ovulation ( when your ovaries release an egg), it’s unlikely that any sperm reaches and fertilizes your egg. So, the womb lining, which becomes thicker to prepare for pregnancy, is shed as MENSTRUAL BLOOD. Hence, the period, called MENSTRUATION.
CHANGES OVER TIME.
If you’ve only just started having periods, you might not ovulate yet. This is a natural way to protect you if your body isn’t ready for pregnancy just yet.
During the first year, you have your periods, you may only ovulate ( Release an egg) 20% of the time. So, if one has 12 periods a year, you probably only release an egg two or three times.
*Remember, every woman is different and once you’re sexually mature you can get pregnant any month.
*You can also get pregnant if you’ve never had a period. Don’t think just because you haven’t been having periods for long you don’t need to use Birth Control
Fertilization & Ovulation. Ovulation as defined earlier is the release of eggs from the ovaries.
When you ovulate, if there are no sperm cells in your Fallopian tube- either because you haven’t had sex or you used a contraceptive- then the eggs won’t be fertilized.
-Your body then gets rid of the lining of the womb, so mucus and blood come out of the vagina- Menstruation or having a Period.
In general, it lasts between 4-7 days. Your menstrual cycle runs from the first day of your period to the first day of your next period, which takes about 28days = 4weeks. But different individuals cycles vary between 21 and 42 days (3-6 weeks)
SIGNS OF OVULATION:-
Some women experience changes when they are ovulating, like;
- A change in vaginal discharge.
- A brief pain or dull ache felt on one side of the abdomen.
- An increased desire for sex
- A bloated abdomen
- A keener sense of vision, smell, or taste.
CAN OVULATION TAKE PLACE RIGHT AFTER PERIOD?
It depends on how many days are in your cycle. If you have a regular cycle- with 28 days from the start of one period to the start of the next- it’s less likely that you will ovulate right after your period.
You may bleed up to the seventh day of your cycle, and we know ovulation usually starts 12-16 days before your next period.
This means you ovulate between day 12 and 16 of your cycle.
If you have an irregular cycle- lasting just 21 days or as long as 42 days- it’s more likely that you could ovulate soon after your period.
For instance, in a 21-day cycle, you may stop bleeding on day 7 of your cycle, but you may ovulate between day 5 and day 9 of your cycle.
HOW TO WORK OUT WHEN TO OVULATE.
This takes a bit of a mathematical approach. You need to work backward from when your period starts. The time you’re likely to ovulate lasts 4 days, between 16 and 12 before the first day of your period.
If you have a period every 28 days, take 16 away from 28:
That means the 4 days you’re most likely to ovulate begins 12 days after your period starts.
*So your period starts on day one, and you ovulate between day 12 and 16. If you have a period every 21 days, take 16 away from 21:-
That means the four days you’re likely to ovulate begin five days after your period starts. So your period starts on day one, and you ovulate between day 5 and day 9.
COULD I OVULATE WITHOUT HAVING A PERIOD? You could ovulate without having a period if:-
- Your body weight is very low
- You are breastfeeding
- You’re approaching menopause.
During ovulation, an unfertilized egg cell travels out of one of the ovaries and down the Fallopian tube to the womb.
To get pregnant, you have intercourse with a man around the time you ovulate- usually about 14days after the first day of your last period. After sex, the sperm swims up the vagina and into the Fallopian tubes. If there’s an egg waiting in one of the Fallopian tubes, the tiny sperm tries to burrow their way inside it. If one sperm gets inside it. If one sperm gets inside the egg, it’s fertilized.
*The fertilized egg then moved down the Fallopian tube to the womb is ready to receive the egg.
** If the fertilized egg nestles into the lining of the womb, you become pregnant.
- Sperm can live in the vagina opening for up to 5 days after sex.
- If you have unprotected sex during your period and you ovulate soon after your period, the sperm can fertilize the egg, then pregnant.
