Ovulation 

on February 24, 2017

One follicle in your ovary will become the dominant follicle as you move closer to ovulation. (In very rare cases you can have more than one dominant follicle released at ovulation- this is what happens in the case of fraternal twins). Only this dominant follicle will continue on to maturation and then release an egg. The other follicles will stop maturing completely. This dominant follicle will protrude like a bubble on the ovary’s surface until it ruptures and the egg is released at ovulation.
