what happens when you ovulate?

You release an egg: Ovulation happens when a follicle in one ovary releases an egg (occasionally more than one follicle on your own, more often with fertility drugs). The egg needs to find its way into one of your fallopian tubes. If you have intercourse around this time, sperm may fertilize the egg, and the fertilized egg may become a pregnancy. The follicle turns into a cyst (corpus luteum) which makes progesterone.

I would say that: if you are having 60 day cycles that they are anovulatory, that there is no ovulation occurring.
