Ovulation: Ovulation is the cornerstone and reason for menstrual cycles. Ovulation is the process of preparing an egg by the ovary for impregnation and pregnancy. It is also the event of the egg being pushed out of the ovary to meet sperm to cause pregnancy. Ovulation usually happens just shy of halfway through the menstrual cycle.
