Ovulation Once the estrogen produced by the growing follicles reaches a certain level, it triggers the pituitary gland to release a surge of LH (luteinising hormone). This causes the most mature follicle to burst open and release its egg into the Fallopian tube. This is ovulation. Some women feel a slight twinge on one side of their lower back or abdominal area around the time of ovulation. Not every woman experiences this, but it is normal and is known as mittelschmerz (middle pain). Some women may also have discharge that is pinkish or a little bloody. If you have more than this little bit of bleeding between periods, tell your doctor. The few days leading up to ovulation are considered the most fertile in a woman's cycle. This is because sperm can survive for up to seven days in a woman's body (on average they live for 3 days). If a woman has sex or insemination during the six or seven days before she ovulates, it is likely that the sperm will still be around by the time her egg is released. One or two days after ovulation are also considered fertile days because a woman's egg can live for about 20 hours after ovulation. If two eggs have matured, the second will be released within 24 hours of the first. From a few days after ovulation until her next bleed, a woman is generally not fertile.
Throughout your menstrual cycle hormonal changes will change your discharge. Around a week leading up to ovulation (ovulation occurs two weeks before your period) you will get fertile quality cervical mucus which is a stretchy gooey discharge like egg-whites. After ovulation your discharge can get heavier, thicker, and more lotion-like which may make you feel more 'moist'.
