Dr. Eric Daiter and The New Jersey Center for Fertility and Reproductive Medicine present a great deal of
information about ovulation on this website.
Ovulation in humans occurs when a mature (fertilization capable) egg is released from an ovary during a
menstrual cycle. This process of ovulation normally occurs at regular monthly intervals during the majority of the
reproductive lifespan (following puberty and prior to menopause). In fact, a history of regular menstrual cycle
intervals with a consistent amount of menstrual flow and premenstrual symptoms (such as headache, bloating,
breast tenderness) is often used as good evidence suggesting ovulation.
A mature, or fertilization capable, egg is absolutely required for successful human reproduction. During
spontaneous natural menstrual cycles one mature egg is generally released at ovulation. In the USA, the rate
of non-identical (heterozygous) twins is about 1 in 90, when two mature eggs may be released during a menstrual
A couple can try to plan a pregnancy, or try to avoid pregnancy, once there is an understanding of the ovulation
(and menstrual) cycle including identification of the most fertile days surrounding the release of a fertilization
capable egg. When planning a pregnancy, you should start folic acid (400 micrograms or 0.4 mg a day is
recommended to reduce the risk of certain birth defects, which can be obtained in foods fortified with folic acid,
vitamins or a folic acid pill), watch what you eat (fruits, vegetables, whole-grains, calcium rich foods are great for
you and fatty foods might be avoided), quit cigarettes and alcohol (or drugs), reduce stress in your life when
possible, get plenty of sleep and exercise, control any chronic medical problems (like diabetes and asthma),
check that your Rubella immunization is still effectively protecting you (blood work can be ordered), and review
medications that you take with your doctors.
Disorders of human ovulation are relatively common, often result in reduced fertility, and may account for up to
one third of the causes for infertility seen in an infertility office. The presence of irregular menstrual cycle
intervals (menses) or an absence of menses (no menstrual flows for several months) is powerful evidence
suggesting an ovulation dysfunction.
There are many possible causes for ovulation disorders, including problems with the ovary, the pituitary gland,
the hypothalamus or the central nervous system (CNS).
Dr. Eric Daiter and The New Jersey Center for Fertility and Reproductive Medicine encourage the viewer to
explore the contents of this site, which is organized into sections including normal ovulation events, ovulation
disorders, and treatments for specific ovulation disorders.
The information within these tutorials is intended to be solely educational. The knowledge and competence that the viewer may expect to develop within the complex medical field of infertility is not a substitute for the medical education that physicians obtain during their medical curriculum and training.
With this in mind, many couples are able to effectively use the knowledge that they gain about human reproduction to guide them through the difficult (and often expensive) process of obtaining medical (infertility) care.
