Is it true that female ovulation cycle occurs on day 14 of every woman’s cycle? In spite of the general consensus the answer is a resounding NO. [WIDGET1]
Each and every woman is unique and while it may be normal for one woman to ovulate on day 14 another may ovulate as early as day 8 and yet another may ovulate as late as day 22. Any of these cases can be perfectly normal. It’s this misconception that has caused women to not conceive if they only have sexual intercourse around day 14 of their cycles.
Given the fact that most women are taught that ovulation occurs on day 14 has caused some to believe that they suffer from infertility and others amazed that they conceived even while avoiding intercourse on day 14.
In my own experience I have ovulated as early as day 12 and as late as day 22. Many factors determine when ovulation actually occurs.
Hormones play a key role in the release of the monthly mature egg and anything from stress to health can hinder the time ovulation actually happens. Of the hormones your body produces the key hormones in the reproductive cycle are follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), estrogen, luteinizing hormone (LH), and progesterone. Any imbalance in these hormones can impede or prevent ovulation. The presence of prolactin (the hormone produced while breastfeeding) and or a dysfunctional thyroid can stop ovulation.
