Ovulation: Learn More About This Very Important Phase

Be honest: have you ever stopped to think about what the ovulation process really entails? Most likely, you'll just focus on your period itself (especially on days when the most difficult-to-tolerate pain takes over). Still, the topic that moves us today is, in fact, ovulation per se , as an integral part of our menstrual cycle.

The days when the tone of your heart invades you are part of an invisible process – but truly important for women. What we don't see happening (or don't pay as much attention to) is equally crucial for the balanced functioning of our body.

The ovulation phase occurs when an egg is released from our ovaries, which may or may not be fertilized by sperm. In the absence of this phase, fertilization would be impossible, but the truth is that this process is not just for the simple fact that we can control our fertility. Knowing more about ovulation not only helps us achieve or avoid pregnancy, it can also help us diagnose certain medical conditions.

According to Patrícia Lemos, menstrual health and fertility educator and author of the website Círculo Perfeito , “the process that results in the release of the egg does not begin in the ovary, but in our brain, with the secretion of a hormone that signals the ovaries. for the maturation process of several follicles.” This origin is fundamental for each of us, as it is what determines whether or not we are in a position to carry on with a pregnancy. If we do not keep all the functions of our organism in balance, we may not ovulate, as the body can understand that this situation is not the best for generating a new life.

And how do we know if we ovulate? According to the aforementioned therapist, this process will depend on our lifestyle, our general state of health (physical and mental) and, of course, the variations in our surrounding environment. Apart from issues related to fertility, the reality is that when we do not ovulate, our production of progesterone (a hormone essential for the development of healthy breast tissue, regular menstruation and normal flow) ends up being compromised. Therefore, it is important that there is a balance between the two key hormones in our cycle – estrogen and progesterone.

Remember that ovulation usually occurs around the 14th day of a 28-day menstrual cycle. But be careful: we are all different and this is not an absolute truth. Not everyone has a 28-day cycle, which means there may be some variation here. If you want to get pregnant, consider speaking to your doctor so that he or she can give you the best advice and identify circumstances that could be causing irregular ovulation.
