shocked into a period by falling from a high height, does a shock period still release the egg?

Nope, and...: Shock doesn't cause a period. A fall or trauma could cause vaginal bleeding for other reasons, however. A period doesn't release an egg - rather, a period is the sloughing of an unused uterine wall - about 2 weeks after an egg was released. If you or your friend has unexplained vaginal bleeding after a trauma, go to the er.

No: Periods don't release eggs. Periods actually mean that an egg has died. The egg is released at the time of ovulation and by the time of period, it's dead unless fertilized.
