Its Estrogen Levels: The trigger of ovulation happens when the estrogen level reaches approximately 250pg/ml. This triggers the pituitary to release lh which causes ovulation. The follicle usually produces that level of estrogen on day 12 of the cycle. However, medications that stimulate more than one follicle can reach this level earlier.
