In brief: By definition

Literally, the word ovulation means to release an egg, so 'yes.
' if your question refers more to releasing an egg when an ovulation test turns positive, the answer is 'mostly.' it is however possible, although not common, for multiple reasons to detect a positive on opk and not actually release an egg.
